    Sarwar makes bid for the Scottish Labour leadership.

    MSP Anas Sarwar launches Scottish Labour leadership bid.

    Scottish Labour MSP Anas Sarwar has announced his candidacy for the position of party leader.

    The Glasgow representative said he was "ready to unite our party and lead us back to power".

    Central Scotland member Richard Leonard has also set out his stall for the leadership contest, which was triggered by the resignation of Kezia Dugdale.

    A series of other MSPs, including interim leader Alex Rowley have already ruled themselves out of the race.

    Sarwar has a strong history with the left wing of the party and he would probably be endorsed by Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Westminster Labour Party, if he was successful in his bid to take the post left vacant by Kesia Dugdale.

    Even although I don't really care who is in charge of the Scottish Labour Party I still worry that he might just finish up as a Westminster Labour Party puppet.

    After Kezia Dugdale was more or less forced out I think that a "London" leader will be put in place.

    Of course the English Labour Party would love to have overall control of what happens in the Scottish Labour Party.

    Corbyn would love to put a "yes" man in the place of Kezia Dugdale.

    While actually living in Scotland, I don't think that the Scots politicians in our Labour Party will allow a London yes-man being put in place.

    We are just going to have to wait and see.
