THE Labour leader (not the branch manager in Scotland) sounded very much like the now Lord Cameron circa 2014 speaking at the party’s conference.

“We want Scotland to lead, not leave” and all the vows of more devolved powers for the Scottish Government “the most powerful devolved country in the world”.

Now the same old, same old from Starmer: “If you want Scotland at the heart of debate ... If you want more money for Scottish public services ...”

Yet he’s the man who has U-turned more times than a driving instructor and keeps cutting back on spending policy time and again.

He must think the good people of Scotland are zipped up the back. Sorry Keir, we’ve heard it all before.
