I don’t need to consult the leader.
Jim Murphy is totally deluded if he imagines he can go against the party bosses in London. There is no such thing as the “Scottish Labour Party”. There is only the British Labour Party. Whatever policy line is taken by British Labour, that line is also binding on British Labour in Scotland.
But, of course, Murph The Mendacious is perfectly well aware of this. His assertion that he doesn’t need to consult his masters is nothing more than the kind of pathetic macho posturing which is something of a Murphy speciality.
Read between the lines and what this clown is actually saying is that he will not get into any conflict with the party leadership because he will do exactly as he’s told.
