Hey, loo' m'over!

Leading the Labour Party of Scotland seems to have become largely a ceremonial position;
The Scottish arm of the opposition Labour Party announced on Saturday that members had elected Kezia Dugdale as their new leader to replace Jim Murphy, who resigned following the party's catastrophic defeat in a general election in May.
Catastrophic in that Labour lost all of its 41 seats in the UK Parliament, but for one. Replaced as Scotland's opposition by the new Scottish National Party--which now holds 56 seats. As the bonnie lass put it;

"I am not so presumptuous to ask instantly for your vote," Dugdale told voters in a victory speech, broadcast by the BBC. "All I ask is that you take a fresh look at the Scottish Labour party under my leadership."
Maybe Scot's Labour will become like Brigadoon. Come to life once every one hundred years.
