Jim Murphy becomes Scottish Labour leader

JIM MURPHY has been elected as the new Scottish Labour leader, comfortably seeing off challenges from Neil Findlay and Sarah Boyack.

Peter A Bell's insight:

Murphy is an empty vessel. He talks about making Scotland “the fairest nation on earth”, but he remains vehemently opposed to Scotland having the powers necessary to achieve this.

He talks about social justice, but remains fervently committed to squandering resources on weapons of mass destruction.

He talks of uniting the country while crudely dismissing the honourable aspirations of at least half of Scotland’s people as merely “one vote on one day”.

The appointment of Jim Murphy as manager of British Labour’s branch office in Scotland may well be the final nail in the coffin of so-called “Scottish Labour”. Good news for the SNP and progressive politics. Bad news for a once proud movement.
