Jim Murphy’s victory celebrated by London party

Another insider said it was “plausible” for Murphy to stand down from Westminster next year and take a year out of elected politics.

Peter A Bell‘s insight:

“Another insider said it was “plausible” for Murphy to stand down from Westminster next year and take a year out of elected politics.”


Really? My understanding is that British Labour’s branch office manager must be an elected politician. If Murphy stands down from Westminster then he would also have to stand down as absentee leader of the non-existent “Scottish Labour Party”. Or is this “insider” intimating that the rules would be massaged in order to accommodate London’s man in Scotland?
