Kezia Dugdale has resigned days after a Blairite purge was predicted in Scottish Labour and reported here:
As a confirmed opponent of Jeremy Corbyn’s socialist agenda it was only a matter of time. She claims that she has left the party in better state than she found it and her head remains high. I think we all know it is the Corbyn surge that gets the credit for any improvement.
Graciously if a little unconvincingly, Corbyn has thank her for her efforts:
‘Kezia became Scottish leader at one of the most difficult times in the history of the Scottish Labour Party, and the party’s revival is now fully under way, with six new MPs and many more to come. I want to thank Kez for her tireless service to our party and movement.’
Who is next I wonder? Alex Rowley’s ‘Gary Tank Commander’s Dad’ impressions get my vote but I guess the literate Corbynite, Neil Findlay, must be the favourite. He’ll be ideally suited to toe the London party line too so if you’re Labour for Independence, don’t go rushing back. Don’t get fooled again.
That’s two song titles in one report!
