Murphy: "You can't have social justice on George Osborne's levels of spending and tax."

Fighting acceptance speech showed why SNP didn't want @jimmurphymp to be Labour's leader in Scotland

I like the way in his first Tweet Murphy has shaped the battle with the SNP – is the prize a fairer Scotland or Independence. It’s a powerful message but he and his party are a long way behind.
Given the polling there’s a huge burden on his shoulders and Labour must be hoping that he can turn the situation round. Every seat that Scottish LAB can claw back reduces the target for the party in England and Wales.
Let’s hope there is some new post-Murphy election Scottish polling.
