Own goal

Labour's election campaign, such as it is, is coming off the rails:
A CONFIDENTIAL Labour document admits the SNP’s economic message is "clearer, stronger and more consistent" than its own, Scotland on Sunday can reveal.....The stark warning by Judith Begg, a former election candidate who worked with Wendy Alexander while enterprise minister, highlights deep anxiety in Labour circles as the party prepares for the May 1 contest
This couldn't possibly be the same Judith Begg who has about two letters a week published in the Scotsman attacking the SNP's economic policy and praising that of Labour, could it? I rather think that it is. Presumably her word processor will be on hold for a week or two.
