With fears growing that hundreds of jobs may be lost in the Clyde shipyards as the UK government slowly backs away from the commitments made during the independence referendum campaign, Kezia Dugdale was full of righteous outrage last night.
But note how delicately that tweet is phrased. The clear implication – while not directly stated – is that only the Tories were responsible for the promises.
Is that the case, though?
To be honest, we’re not seeing a lot of Tories making promises in there. It seems to have been pretty much all Labour politicians who went to the shipyards with their red and yellow banners and told the workers there that a No vote guaranteed their jobs.
(After all, how many self-respecting union workers on Red Clydeside would ever have believed promises coming from a Conservative government? It would have had to be someone the poor sods trusted who got sent to deliver that message.)
Then again, Kezia Dugdale was in “Better Together” and we weren’t, so perhaps we should bow to her superior knowledge and experience of working with Tories.
