Murphy responds to coup plot claim

This is Secretary of State Jim Murphy's 10.20pm response to the claim that he was one of six cabinet members Hewitt and Hoon believed would back a bid to unseat Gordon Brown as leader

“This is a distraction from the important work of protecting jobs and working towards the economic recovery. This is particularly important in Scotland where the SNP government are just not doing enough.”

I'm sitting here waiting for the SNP to lovebomb the inbox of Scottish journalists with their own reaction.

  1. Murphy said the "SNP government"? He must have been in a real panic if he forgot to say "Executive"!
