Len McCluskey, 2016 Labour Party Conference 2.jpgLen McCluskey’s 11-year leadership of Unite covered a period of intense political turbulence — Conservative-Lib Dem “austerity,” Brexit, the rise and fall of Corbynism, a global pandemic.

“Labour’s position on Brexit was a disaster. It was a slow-motion car crash that we at least saw coming since, well, certainly the beginning of 2018, and the seats lost were overwhelmingly Leave seats.

He is aware that, like one hears talks in other countries, like Belgium and Spain

It’s time for a proper debate about federalism, and if we succeed in putting a different question into the Scottish question, whether there might be a future for a federation with England and Wales — it sounds fanciful at the moment, but my experience tells me politics changes fast, and that might be the only future for Scottish Labour.”
