As Detective Columbo would say...

- just one more thing...

I nearly laughed out loud at Gordon Brown's suggestion that the Labour Party is the first line of defence for the people of Scotland against the SNP Government.

Yes, that would be the same 'people of Scotland' who democratically elected the SNP Government last year! How patronising in the extreme. He is espousing the idea that somehow the citizens of this country need protection from the government they have democratically elected. Gordon Brown has forgotten that the SNP won the popular vote in the Scottish Parliament elections last May, and we had the highest number of MSPs elected.

This is just further evidence of the level of denial within Labour's ranks, and their belief that they somehow have a right to rule in Scotland. That kind of arrogance is exactly what turned so many people in Scotland away from Labour.

Des Browne was just as amusing.

"We may be in opposition in the Scottish Parliament but we are still in government in Scotland" claimed Des Browne.

That is one of the most deluded comments (and there are many) that I have heard yet from a nuLabourite. It'll soon be a full year since they lost the election and some of them still don't realise that they are no longer "in government in Scotland", even though they hold reserved powers as the government in London!
