YOUR front-page report suggests that the Labour leadership in Scotland is ``going to take revenge on the party's Scottish Executive Committee'' following the events of the summer over Tony Blair's decision to hold a two-question referendum (October 2).

When one turns to the substance of the article, however, it amounts to a proposal to revamp the Scottish Executive and to include, at least in certain sections, one member one vote.

Our organisation gives an unconditional welcome to these developments. We have argued for some years that the Scottish Executive has to be reorganised and should be elected on the basis of one member one vote.

Quite why some spin-doctor has therefore chosen to portray this change as one which is to be imposed on an unwilling membership is a question which might be more appropriately addressed to the source for your story.
