Courtesy of Drumlanrig, "The Scottish Labour leadership contest has not pleased the brothers in Scotland's big unions. The unions all get a vote in the election process but, as they have never done it before, they are all now having to get a new list of all their members and send out ballot papers to them. For the biggest union in Scotland, Unite, this is expected to cost at least £100,000. "That's money which we could have spent campaigning to get the party back in power," complained one Union chief. Yet another add-on cost of devolution, it seems."

Democracy ain't cheap.
