A Labour imperialist

There is no better testament to the rotten, imperialist core of the Labour Party than its leader in Scotland, Jim Murphy. Murphy served as Miliband’s Shadow Secretary for Defence between 2010 and 2013. A notorious supporter of the original invasion of Iraq, he is an ardent Zionist and former chair of Labour Friends of Israel, and a member of the neoconservative Henry Jackson Society. In September 2013, he tabled a Labour amendment to the Defence Reform Bill to make it a ‘specific criminal offence’ to ‘attack members of our Armed Forces’. In two years he has claimed nearly £40,000 in expenses renting a flat in London while letting out one he bought earlier with public money.
