Leaked Labour Party memo explains why they lost in Scotland

From today’s edition of The Herald:

Scottish Labour lost the May election because of infighting over control, a poorly thought out manifesto and the facts that the party had little momentum or a positive message…

The Colwell memo states the campaign was “relentlessly negative with little that can be judged to be positive.

“The national organisation was hampered by in-fighting over who was in control, while local organisation was patchy. It seemed that the party has been hollowed out,” though in some places candidate effort and headquarters support made a difference.
