As Telegraph spin and smear gets exposed Jamie Maxwell explores the backstory
SCOTTISH politics has one iron law at the moment: any party caught facilitating Tory success faces utter ruin.
This was Labour’s experience during the independence referendum. The party’s decision to campaign alongside the Conservatives in defence of the Union shattered its credibility in once rock-solid urban constituencies. Now Labour is heading for a rout of biblical proportions on 7 May, as the SNP soaks-up the bulk of Scotland’s sizeable left-of-centre, anti-Tory vote.
For this reason above others, I’m sceptical of the Daily Telegraph’s “bombshell” story this morning.
