There can be no doubt about it, Jeremy Corbyn, his colleagues, and their policies, have, and continue to be, subjected to far greater scrutiny than Team Theresa. We, in Scotland, are of course, quite used to this sort of thing, with SNP MSP's, MP's, councillors, candidates, and ordinary members, being held to a far higher standard than the rest. But it is not only the majority of the mainstream media who are unforgiving where Corbyn is concerned. There are also his political opponents, including those within the Labour Party.
Imagine my surprise, on reading that Kezia Dugdale intends to continue at the helm of Scottish Labour, regardless of the outcome on June 8th, given that last August, she backed Owen Smith to replace Jeremy Corbyn as leader, despite the latter having been in the job less than a year, and never having contested a general election.
It could be that Ms Dugdale has had a change of heart, and that she will be behind Mr Corbyn 100 per cent, should he decide to carry on as Labour leader, even in the event of a Tory landslide next month. Then again, perhaps she simply holds Mr Corbyn to a higher standard than that which she expects from everyone else, and indeed herself.
