Watch out! There's a Murphy about...SCOTLAND!

I'm grateful to The Little Man in a Toque for telling us about Jim Murphy's new blog. The man who was until recently Minister for Europe (and didn't he knock the stuffing out of any faint-hearted Eurosceptic by droning on in the House?), is now Secretary of State for Scotland.

He waffles on about what he's going to do. Doesn't sound like he's been in touch with the First Minister. If I was Alex Salmond, I'd keep any meeting short and very monosyllabic. Drifting off to the land of nod is very possible.

Murphy says a lot about Scotland and it's all very good. But why leave it there? He and his cronies have stuffed England. No similar devolved Parliament, no similar free this and free that. England is paying extra all round.

He talks about business being the engine house. True as well. But his boss has been allowing the money manipulators to get away with it all the time he was chancellor. It isn't just a case of closing the stable door after the horse has bolted. There isn't a stable door!
