What is wrong with the Labour Party?

I don't understand why they keep getting it so wrong and particularly in the Glasgow East by election campaign. Blunders are abounding and this is just crazy. John Michie, the Taggart actor, is out campaigning for Labour when it's revealed that he made a TV piece in April about how beneficial Independence would be for Scotland. This was not an actor doing a voiceover, this was his personal view. And he was very convincing. Unlike his subsequent and hurried statement today taking it all back. The Labour candidate could only say "he's told me he's been misrepresented"! Misrepresented? Well it was HE would was doing the representing.

Is there anything equivocal about this statement? If anyone has any doubt about his pro Independence stance they're going to have to explain it to me because there ain't no doubt as far as I'm concerned.
