Taxi For Jim Murphy? Watch

    • Thread Starter

    Despite securing Scottish Labour's worst election result since 1918 by losing just over 97% of their seats, Jim Murphy is still clinging onto power as leader of the party. Unions are calling for his resignation and even a senior Labour MSP was quoted as saying: "It's absurd he's even considering staying. He's about as popular as herpes."

    Does anyone think he is right to stay and try and rejuvenate the party? Or should he leave and let someone else take over the reins?

    If he wanted what is best for Labour, he would have left long ago, the fact that he is clinging on, suggests he either doing it for his career or his pride.
