I know it’s tempting. He seems to be a really nice guy. His social policies are just what we want here too. Actually, we’ve got some of them already, without his help, remember that.
But, we’ve been through this before for nearly a century, falling for Labour leaders who we thought might deliver the kind of Scotland we now should know only independence can deliver. When they’re in government, they’re first and foremost beholden to the English electorate. I voted Labour until Kinnock under the same delusions. I won’t get fooled again [hear the Who song every time you read that?].
Kezia Dugdale, who of course really disnae like him has suggested Corbyn is ‘very open’ to ‘her’ idea of devolving issues like immigration and employment law through a distinct Brexit deal. Not surprisingly, he has since contradicted her in the old tradition of London Labour leaders telling the Scottish branch what’s what. He said it would be ’very, very difficult if not impossible.’ And that ‘UK-wide agreement was preferable.’ So that’s her telt.
He then went even further to reveal how Anglo-centric he is by saying Scotland couldn’t have a separate legal system when, as we all know, we already have one.
