Labour leadership contender’s claim SNP are Tories shows she doesn’t understand Scotland


Commenting today in the Scotsman, on Emily Thornberry’s unfortunate comments about the SNP.

“I’ve never met Emily Thornberry but I’m sure she doesn’t really hate the SNP. That was simply unfortunate rhetoric used by her as she played to the gallery in a party hustings. It was crass of her as I’m sure she’s not someone who burns with hate.

“It was, though, indicative of a deep ignorance of Scottish politics amongst the Labour leadership contenders.”
