Steven Purcell, former leading light of Scottish Labour, believes his party must undertake a completely separate operation if it is to resurrect its traditional strength in Scotland.
Purcell, former Labour leader of Glasgow City Council and once tipped as a future Scottish party leader before standing down after a personal scandal, believes Labour’s humiliation earlier this month was inevitable.
He tells interviewer Derek Bateman that the party needs a major re-think if it is to recover ground, and argued that recovery could take many years to achieve.
