Our old pal Jim Murphy MP, branch manager of the North Britain branch of the UK Labour party couldn’t resist a at the home of football – Pittodrie. There he was showing the assembled press his silky skills while the UK parliament voted on fracking in Westminster (546 miles away by road).
This was a bit odd after he and his party had spent the whole weekend telling us that they were going to vote to stop fracking from taking place, however when the vote came the majority of the Labour MPs abstained from voting at all. It would appear that they lied.
They also lied about voting to transfer powers over fracking to the Scottish parliament, they lied about that too. This just after they had voted with the Tories for another £30 billion in austerity cuts and voted FOR spending over £100 billion on renewing Trident nuclear missiles.
Who can trust a party like that?
