Labour's Fantasy Figures
Last week Andy Kerr was interviewed on Newsnight Scotland about Labour's main policy of imprisoning anyone who is found to be carrying a knife. Needless to say other political parties disagree with the policy.
Nigel Hawks of Straight Statistics has completed an excellent analysis of the policy and he shows that Labour has plucked the costs out of thin air.
Please do read his article. If Labour can make such gross errors in simple arithmetic what chaos will they bring to Scotland should they be returned as the biggest party?
While polls may record the SNP currently leading in the campaign, I have my concerns about the postal voting sytem which appears to be quite haphazard. That's where Labour make their gains.
