Scottish carpetbaggers coming down to London

Disingenuous article by George Eaton in the New Statesmen about the implications of Scottish "independence" for the Labour Party:  http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2013/11/why-scottish-independence-wouldnt-mean-permanent-majority-tories

If Scotland is no longer part of the United Kingdom there will not be the usual procession of Scottish carpetbaggers coming down to London to build their political careers - more of the socialists will stay in Scotland and turn their attentions to Holyrood.

Thus Labour at Westminster will be denuded of talent, while the SNP at Holyrood will have a more formidible Labour Party to confront.
