A crushing blow for the Labour party

Last night the Labour party lost their third safest parliamentary seat, in a bye-election in Glasgow to the Scottish National Party. There was a swing of 22% against Labour. If the same performance was repeated throughout Scotland, the prime minister would himself have lost his seat.

Labour are in serious trouble. It is in Scotland where the damge to them seems most tangible. Gordon Brown is fighting a losing battle.
