The Caird Hall less than a third full on both days, its accoustics as hollow and empty as the politicians braying into them, Labour's Scottish region with its head not so much stuck in the sand as up its own backside and this is the party that is going to save Scotland from its self by keeping it the 'Union'.
The toxic three (Labour, Libdems, Tory) constantly miss the point with respect to Scotland and have, since 2007, focussed on Alex Salmond rather than the frequently expressed wish by the Scottish electorate for a new confederal Union where we pay our own way and put in a share towards services such as defence.
The impact of this is that Westminster would return to being the English parliament along with the out moded and undemocratic House of Lords. The UK would be run as a unicameral body along the lines of a British Isles Council.
All the likes of Milliband, Clegg and Cameron are doing with their 'jam tomorrow line' and telling us Scots that the man we elected First Minister is a big bad bogeyman and we are naughty to think we can get away with it, is loosing the argument without the SNP having to say or do anything.
Milliband spoke to Labour Scottish Region activists yesterday, Labour's West of Scotland 'bastion' is in open civil war which has everything to do with self interest than Glasgow and environs, across Scottish Councils up coming council candidates for Labour are already in arms about the compulsory levy on their 'salary' if elected and the big brother performance measuring which is being imposed all of which he ignored with his mewling little 'speech'.
What the toxic three just do not get is that Scots are not going to be 'told' by Oxbridge millionaires, whose self interest shines brighter than their polices, what is best for us and the more they do the further Scotland slips through their fingers.
Today we heard from Labour in Scotland's Wee Jimmie Krankie that Labour's Scottish Region has nothing to say sorry for and it is all the First bogeyman the majority of Scots voted for's fault with all the deliberately positive things he is doing for Scotland, how we don't deserve a Scottish Government focussed on doing the best for Scotland and why if we trust them this time they will do all those things they have failed to do for the last 50 years and more for Scotland.
In the meantime on the issues that really bother the Scottish electorate about Labour in Scotland - bullying, gerrymandering, ignoring their own party rules, the civil war in Glasgow, collapsing membership, links to organised crime, obstructing Strathclyde Police investigations into party / ALEO malfeasance, London taking direct control of candidate selection, jobs for the bhouys and girls and all the other signs the party is in rapid decline there was just a 'sage brush' momment.
Johann Lamont you do not simply have to apologise to the people of Scotland for your party's betrayal's over the last 50 years but the Labour constituency parties in Scotland you have also humiliated.
