Homophobe and bigot favourite to be selected as Labour MSP candidate

Dennis Goldie, a Labour Party councillor, is said to be the favourite amongst three candidates to be selected as the Labour Party candidate in the Falkirk West seat being vacated by Independent MSP Dennis Canavan in the Scottish Parliament. Some Labour people are said to prefer a less divisive candidate.

The question one must ask though is why this idiot has not been expelled from the Labour Party; he has 'form' as a person who flings wild accusations at his political opponents (and has been censured by the Standards Commission for this) quite apart from his 'homophobia' which, whilst not a crime, certainly makes him an unattractive character - he is a political liability (I would have thought) for a major mainstream political party, not of course that I act as a paid or unpaid adviser to the Labour Party (very droll - Ed.).
