Corbyn appears to be striking a chord with traditional Labour voters and perhaps with more idealistic young voters who have never voted before.

Will the Corbyn Effect take off in Scotland and do something to revive Labour's fortunes, or is it too late?

Billy Bragg once commented that he would be voting LibDem because they were the 'furthest left he could find'.
I guess he was insinuating that New Labour had lurched repeatedly so far to the right that they had now joined the Tories.
So Corbyn should like a breath of fresh air to Mr Bragg and millions of other traditional Labour voters down south.
Bonny Scotland? We got Ms Dugdale who hardly inhabits the same left wing ground as Corbyn, so traditionalist labour in Scotland would hopefully be less impressed and stick with their new mates in the SNP !
