Blind Labour

I am mystified as to why the Labour Party, in particular their Scottish Branch office, have learned nothing from the trouncing they received at the general election, especially from the SNP.

They were punished for working with the Tories during the referendum campaign. Why the Labour Party continue to work with the Tories at Westminster to deny the Scottish Parliament the additional powers needed to boost our economy and create jobs baffles me.

Jim Murphy was right when he stated that “there will be another referendum” (your report, 15 June).

The justification for this will not be, as he suggested, because David Cameron is so dumb, but because the Labour Party are so dumb as to continue to support a Tory government hell-bent on keeping our Scottish Parliament weak and impotent.
