George Kerevan’s excellent article (Perspective, 10 December) is a reminder of what Scottish Labour has lost in a generation at Westminster.
John P Mackintosh was a politician who, had he not died so young, would have been an excellent participant in Scotland’s march towards greater devolution.
In his final paragraph Mr Kerevan aptly sums up the current breed of Scottish Labour MPs at Westminster – surely the reason that Scottish Labour has indeed lost its following up here.
Mr Mackintosh will be turning in his grave as those chosen to take Scotland forward at Westminster choose the well-trodden path that is self-preservation.
Shame on them !
