SCOTTISH LABOUR PARTY CLUELESS
Mr Murphy says he’s the man that will not need to ask his labour head office permission to change how its run in the future, oh yes he will!
We also see the BBC in Scotland doing all they can to promote their man in the Scottish media circle.
Mr Murphy’s predecessor, Johann Lamont, resigned after the independence referendum saying Labour’s Westminster leadership had treated the party in Scotland as a “branch office”.
Mr Murphy is quoted as saying this;
“I didn’t agree with the comment about the branch office and I’m going to make clear how that will change,” Mr Murphy said.
“Things on election tactics, election strategy, party funding, party strategy, the policies are devolved to the Scottish Parliament – those decisions will be made in Scotland in future,” he said.
He never agreed with the statement being made but notice he never said it was not true?
His next paragraph gets even stranger he states’ “Things on election tactics, election strategy, party funding, party strategy, the policies are devolved to the Scottish Parliament – those decisions will be made in Scotland in future.”
When Johann Lamont resigned she basically said the same thing yet here Mr Murphy states, “Those decisions will be made in Scotland in future.”
Mr Murphy is basically saying Johann Lamont was spot on they are but a branch of labour party HQ in London and he hopes he can change it, no chance, why then did the BBC decide to report this news story the other way
Mr Murphy later added: “I’m big enough and I’m ugly enough”. We say he was telling the truth about this, oh well at least he got something right in his speech!
You know things are not right when Mr Murphy states; “We are going to hold every labour Westminster seat in Scotland.” he must be thinking about something else here folks?
Which just goes to show Scottish Labour Party are indeed clueless if they think Labour HQ will give them complete autonomy.
