Sheridan calls for new party

I suppose this was inevitable really. Still sad, though.

Tommy Sheridan has signalled he intends to sever his ties with the Scottish Socialists and form a new party.

The Glasgow MSP last night said the eight-year-old party he helped form and once led seemed to have "reached its historical limits" and he thought "a new movement" could best carry on the socialist struggle.

And thanks to the reader who sent me a four-page email arguing why I should be backing the SSP's United Left faction. I'm clearly going to have to think this one over yet again.

Anybody got any assessment of the possibilities for Sheridan joining forces with Galloway?
