Tip for Murphy

Have your say

The latest constituency poll appears to confirm that the advent of Jim Murphy has bounced Labour to a new low in Scotland.

Labour now requires something sensational to reverse this trend and I’d suggest it should “steal” another policy from the SNP, by opposing the renewal of Trident.

Trident is obscene and immoral and has deterred no-one. It played no part in the Falklands, Iraq or Afghanistan and is useless in confronting IS.

Dump it now, and reverse your 13-year record on the redistribution of wealth and you may still have a chance. Otherwise, in embracing weapons of mass destruction and an austerity programme, you are seen all too clearly as the Tories mark II.
