Scotland really is going to 'that place' in a handcart!

My own rules for this website prevent me from using the word above that really fits, but the decision of postal workers in Edinburgh, members of a branch of the Communication Workers' Union (CWU), to affiliate to the Scottish Socialist Party (SSP), following on from the earlier decision by the Rail Maritime and Transport (RMT) union to do the same, is worrying. Of course, I support the notion that people should be able to support whomever they wish, within the law, but the far-left SSP is much too extreme for my liking. I doubt that the SSP is on the brink of an electoral breakthrough, although one can never ne complacent. Still, it is a worrying sign when employees in core industries seem to be edging toward radicalisation.
