Labour is a bizarre party:

If you are seeking a source of innocent merriment, ask your Labour MSPs how many votes they have in [the Scottish leadership] contest. The top total I’ve discerned so far is five.

Here’s how that breaks down. Labour MSP – one vote. Co-op MSP – one vote. Union member – one vote. Party member – one vote. Affiliated society, such as the Fabians – or the Socialist Health Association – one vote. Five in total.
