Fear and panic runs rampant through senior Labour Party ranks as they draft in outsiders to work as activists in Scottish Holyrood election!
The clock is ticking down to May 5th, 7 am!
The battle for Scotland continues with the SNP and Labour fighting in the trenches, no quarter given, it's a fight to the death.
The Labour Party campaign has died completely, Iain Gray is seen as a liability now, the man who ran away is now trying to roar like a lion when he realy is a mouse.
In order to try and defeat the Scottish people, the Labour Party is drafting in people from England and Northern Ireland to shore a failed activist base which has crumbled.
Scottish Labour are abandoning Iain Gray, they know the jig is up.
We are now at the stage where the Labour party are expected to launch a series of personal attacks on Alex Salmond.
In these closing days the fear and panic is racing through the Scottish Labour ranks as more opinion polls have confirmed that Iain Gray’s election campaign has completely stalled.
The 'East Coast Weasel' Iain Gray is desperately trying to resurrect a campaign that has seen a double digit poll lead over the SNP vanish.
The Labour Party fought a Westminster campaign in Holyrood election and are paying the price of that stupidity.
The series of policy U turns by Labour in an attempt to appear more SNP has meant that the voters increasingly begun to compare the Scottish leaders.
Alex Salmond or Iain Gray!
It's no contest, people want Alex Salmond back as First Minister of Scotland.
Iain Gray is struggling to hang on to second, at times being pushed into third by Annabel Goldie.
The Labour Party support Herald Scotland urging a change in strategy.
One Labour MP said:
"We should be attacking Salmond's pomposity. We are too timid. We should be going for his jugular."
It looks like we are entering the 'nasty' time when the gloves will be off as the MSM and the Labour Party get down into the gutter to save Iain Gray.
The strategy change comes a day after Tory PM and Bullingdon boyDavid Cameron launched his own attack on Alex Salmond.
Cameron tried to mock the Scottish First Minister by calling him "El Presidente Salmondo".
Although there are 129 MSP seats up for grabs, people are focussed on what is a two horse race to become First Minister, Goldie and Scott have no chance.
Cameron told the Scottish Mail on Sunday:
"This is not a presidential system. Last time I looked it was a parliamentary system and El Presidente Salmondo needs to think again."
SNP campaign director Angus Robertson countered:
"David Cameron obviously doesn't understand the Scottish parliamentary process - the list vote determines the political balance of the Parliament, and under the Holyrood system it is the MSPs who directly vote in the First Minister. Therefore, the list vote is the one which decides who becomes First Minister - and the SNP's message of 'Alex Salmond for First Minister' for the list vote is a big winner on the doorstep."
The fevered attacks from Labour and the Tories follow on from another opinion poll this weekend showing the SNP with a clear lead in both constituency and list.
For the SNP, now is not the time to take their foot off the gas but rather turn on the nitro as they blast to the finish line.
Every vote counts and everyone needs to have their voice heard in this election.
Even although the Labour vote is totally collapsing because of their poor strategy, the time to stop fighting will be 10.00 pm May 5th until then, its all guns blazing.
10.01 pm, Scotland can put the kettle on, crack out the biscuits and sit in front of the telly, feet up!
And wait for the result while munching away, get the popcorn out!
