Responding to Labour in London giving its northern outpost more autonomy, Kenneth Gibson said:
"How many of 'Scottish' Labour's dwindling band of supporters realised just how powerless their 'Branch Office' in Scotland is?
"It is now crystal clear, as London Labour has decided to graciously allow it's satellite party north of the border control over Westminster candidate selection, constituency parties and policy.
"Sounds of horses having already bolted and stable doors firmly closed...
"Only the SNP puts Scotland first, last, always."
