Jim Murphy. Most people outside of the UK have not heard of him. Most people within the UK have probably not heard of him. He was until last week a Labour MP. He was until today the leader of the Scottish Labour Party. Now he really does need to update his CV. Can someone send him a copy of this book please?
His CV is classic modern Labour Party. No real-world experience, though he does play football. Just politics, politics, and, er, more politics. Has never run a business, has never been on the shop floor. He was President two years in a row of the National Union of Students UK, the classic route for many a Labour Party apparatchik. But guess what, he never even graduated.
Labour Party, do yourself a favour. Do the British people a favour. Get rid of the apparatchiks, and get the people with real-word experience. Er, you still believe you are the working (wo)man’s party, I presume?
Have a careerist day, won’t you!
