Today sees another chapter in the Jim Murphy mini drama, with Labours Scottish executive meeting to decide his fate.
Jim has been clinging on like a limpet to the position of Leader of the local Labour Scottish branch office, despite no longer holding any elected position, having lost his Westminster seat in the General election.
Labour could choose to take the tory route of elevating him to the House of Lords to attempt to give him some form of dubious unelected political legitimacy, but of course they wont do that, they would be an even bigger laughing stock than they already are.
I have nothing to support my suspicion, but I suspect that Labour got exactly what they wanted when they gave him his role, namely that they would be rid of him.
As the voices mounting from the Unions in recent days, demanding his resignation, have got ever louder, Jim and his buddy McTernan have desperately tried to quell opposition, but seemingly to little avail.
A letter has been doing the rounds seeking support for him from MSP’s, not MPs, they only have one of those left.
Nicola Sturgeon on hearing this, asked “where can I sign”?
Far be it for me to suggest that he goes, I hope he stays and gives us some more fun next year in Holyrood election.
