An increasingly second rate society

Interesting article about Scottish Labour by Eric Shaw (Senior Lecturer in Politics at the University of Stirling)  http://blogs.lse.ac.uk/politicsandpolicy/the-troubles-of-scottish-labour/?utm_content=buffer37b7d&utm_medium=social&utm_source=twitter.com&utm_campaign=buffer

I think however he overlooks how migration from Scotland has drained the region of political leadership leaving the SNP unchallenged.

Most people of talent and ability in Scotland vote with their feet and leave.

By default over decades it has become an increasingly second rate society (this is not meant as a slur - if the first rate segment of a population is continually siphoned off the second rate will increasingly predominate, which is why the banal SNP with its amateur policies is successful).
