Damian McBride, the former smear artist and Gordon Brown henchman has been spilling the beans in the Daily Mail about his time as a spin doctor for Brown. His new book has helped to solve the mystery of what happened to Wendy Alexander, the former 'Scottish Labour' leader after she kept demanding a referendum on independence for Scotland. She kept telling the SNP to 'Bring it on' which seemed to go against the wishes of London Labour who certainly had no interest in a quick referendum on independence for Scotland.
According to McBride it was her brother Douglas Alexander ( the present shadow Foreign Secretary ) who finished her off with a knife in the back by telling Gordon that she had to be sacked as she was contradicting London Labour with her demands for a quick referendum on independence for Scotland. Dougie helpfully advised Gordon to use the 'dodgy Guernsey donation' issue as the reason for her to resign. This would act as a smokescreen for the real reason for her to be sacked....their panic over her Scottish referendum demands.
McBride's book 'Power Trip' reveals the full gory details of how the Labour party really operate and will be an 'interesting' read. It won't be covered by their followers in the BBC etc so you might have to order it from the library.
It would be great to leave all the Labour smears and spin behind after independence but they're entrenched in Scotland as well so they will always be a stain on us.
Order from the library....
