Murphy not moving anywhere
Some cheeky mischief making from SNPTacticalVoting on Jim Murphy's possible future. Basically, given Holyrood boundary changes an opportunity may open up for a certain someone to stand for the Scottish parliament in the East Renfrewshire area 2011. There's about three ifs in the theory which makes it more watering can than watertight. And what do any of us know is in store for us, I ask?
The Secretary of State for Scotland is in a "no sleep until Dover House is safe from grasping Tory hands and Caledonia is free of gnat malaria" mode just now, is the reply, and he can't contemplate life beyond a general election campaign. End of speculation, then.
