It's a question ringing round the United Kingdom and probably nowhere more painfully than in Labour's so-called heartlands in Scotland. What is Labour for? First Minister Nicola Sturgeon asks, "If Labour is not about standing up for the vulnerable, trying to lift people out of poverty and help those who are working hard to make ends meet, then what on earth is labour for?"
Can I put it more succinctly. If Labour is not a crusade for social justice, it is nothing. At the moment the Party seems depressingly moving towards proving it is nothing.
