Former Scottish Labour PPC says "thank goodness" Labour didn't win election

A former press advisor to Gordon Brown, Ed Miliband and the Parliamentary Candidate for Midlothian, Kenny Young, has said on twitter, "Thank goodness" that Labour didn't win the 2017 General Election. 

Mr Young's comments show how much Scottish Labour has changed. Young didn't believe that Labour could win in 2017 and didn't stand and Dani Rowley was duly elected as the new Labour MP for Midlothian. 

With Richard Leonard elected as leader of the Scottish Labour Party, it is a testament to the political tectonic shift that has taken place in Scottish Labour in recent years.

Mr Young gained infamy in Labour circles for the famous gaffe where he was captured opening a door for Gordon Brown in a photo that was later turned into a Tory election poster.


The columnist Owen Jones on Twitter said:

Kenny Young asked us to include the following tweet.
