Scottish Labour: A war-mongering, unionist WMD party, expedient and devoid of principle. A few honourable exceptions - but misplaced loyalty

Scottish Labour MSPs - with honourable exceptions - are cynical carpetbaggers who see the high road to England as their best career hope

Ed Miliband is now embarrassed by Iraq - not by death, destruction and chaos, but by its effect on Labour's vote share. Is Tom McCabe sorry?

Labour warned its MSPs not to embarrass the executive or UK. Labour ministers did not speak. Tom McCabe attacked SNP for forcing the debate.

You can trust Labour to stop free travel, raise council tax, wreck free personal care, support booze barons, support WMDs and illegal wars.

Blair, Labour PM and Iraq: Gordon Brown Labour PM supported it. Ed Miliband voted for it, but now is sorry. Iain Gray voted for Iraq War.

The Kraken wakes - the giant brain and magnetic personality of Iain Gray are in overdrive. He is half-awake instead of half-asleep. Beware!

Just over 100 days to an election that is crucial to Scotland's future. In spite of the polls, paranoid Labour will "go negative". Watch out

The Opposition in Holyrood are not part of a Parliament - they are a unionist pressure group.Democracy comes a poor second to the UK Empire.
