Surely we aren't seeing an outbreak of scruples in the Labour Party? More likely is that the rats are fleeing the sinking ship of Trident.
We note that Jim Devine is not standing down from the Labour Party but only from the unpopular Labour Government in opposition to the policy on Trident. Why doesn't he get some bottle and do the right thing?
There must be an election due and we can look forward to more Scottish Labour party figures, both national and local, deciding that Trident policy is a threat to their comfy Westminster lifestyle. More and more they want to spit the dummy of Bliar but carry on feeding off the tit of Labour's former principled opposition to nuclear weapons. Their cynicism insults their electors.
