Hamish Macdonell On Comment Is Expensive

The Special Relationship in actionThis is spot on and worth reading.

It explains why Jack McConnell has been studiously avoiding any form of debate with Alex Salmond in recent months. According to the article in The Scotsman today, one Labour source said: "It is a difficult one. I know why he is not debating with Salmond but we are starting to get beaten on this. The jibes about 'running scared' are starting to get through." And another insider added: "Jack will come out fighting, there is no doubt about that. But I will concede that there is a vacuum at the moment and Alex is exploiting that perfectly."

The truth is that Jack is far too busy running the country, just as Tony is far too busy running this one. We don't need any more debate, we just need to keep heading for the cliffs on with our current programme.
