Joined up thinking

Yesterday morning in the Guardian we were treated to an article on 'how disillusionment with Labour has turned into raw rage'. In it we learnt that Jim Murphy has been sworn at, denounced as a traitor to Scotland and called a red Tory by three different people in Glasgow.  Apparently Scots are refusing to accept Labour literature on the doorstep, treating it as if it was toxic.  This is being portrayed by senior Labour figures as a rage which apparently borders on the irrational (because of course Scottish people refusing to vote Labour could only be explained by irrationality).  Heads are being scratched, meetings held, but still they cannot come up with an explanation.  What could it be?

Then in the afternoon the Guardian reports that, should Labour get into government at Westminster, they will call on Michael Heseltine to be an adviser to such a government.  Yes, that Michael Heseltine, the one who was a minister in Margaret Thatcher's cabinet.

I have a feeling there's a clue there, I just can't quite put my finger on it...
