I haven’t read the news about what you just mentioned. Frankly, the last couple of years I stopped reading much of the political and economy news, mostly because I lost interest, bit also due to the astonishing stupidity of the whole Brexit thing. Work related as well, up to a couple of years ago, due to my work I met quite often (albeit indirectly) with quite a few economists and political commentators, which forced me to keep my current affairs knowledge relevant. Not the case any more, so I lost interest.
It’s a shambles currently though, no? All of it.
Edit: oh, and I know very little about Scottish politics, unfortunately.
Edit 2: what I meant by a new party, I meant formed by politicians of all parties, whose common goal would be the reversal of Brexit. Not just Labour mps.
