One other thing. Radio 4 had a Corbynite MP on this morning, and anyone who says Corbyn is above spin needs to have a listen to that programme. She'd clearly been carefully coached to repeat soundbites and stay on message. Spin is the lifeblood of politics, you're never going to eliminate that.
Corbyn is a unionist though so not sure it helps in Scotland. And the change needs to come from Scottish Labour, not Westminster, which seems unlikely
