Alex Salmond: Kez v Jez means civil war


By former Scottish first minister Alex Salmond

IT’S “Kez v Jez” screamed one newspaper.

The headline meant that Labour’s leader in Scotland, Kezia Dugdale (“Kez”) had launched an attack on UK leadership candidate Jeremy Corbyn (“Jez”).

In my time as First Minister there were no less than four leaders of the Labour Party in Scotland – Jack McConnell, Wendy Alexander, Iain Gray and Johann Lamont.

After a mere nine months Nicola Sturgeon is already on her second – the “abominable No Man” Jim Murphy, and now his former deputy, Kezia Dugdale.

In total, that is six leaders in exactly eight years. I do not think it will be long before there is a seventh.
