Quote of the Week

"You can feel the frustration that people have, that the principles have been abandoned by Labour. My dad is a lifelong Labour voter: my family was all proper Clydeside-shipyards Labour. But my grandfather would turn in his grave if he heard how Labour were behaving now: the bitterness in them.

"The intellect of the party has fallen, the principles of the party have fallen. They started taking people for granted. My dad and I joined the SNP on the same day. Labour have never had to campaign here."- Mhairi Black, newly elected Scottish MP at age 20.

(I couldn't handle being a politician of any stripe at 20, so my hat's off to her.)
