CHRISTMAS came late for Jim Murphy.
SCOTTISH Labour leader Jim Murphy is considering reforms to his party's selection procedures that could effectively sack weak MSPs and replace them with fresh talent.
Jim Murphy is "trying to pick a fight" with Labour bosses in London with his plans to use cash raised from a mansions tax to fund 1,000 extra nurses north of the border, his Tory rival Ruth Davidson claimed.
Murphy's Law - anything that can go wrong, will go wrong.
SCOTTISH Labour's brief period of unity has ended after the former spokesman for Jim Murphy's defeated rival accused the new leader of "abandoning truth" and "making stuff up" about Scottishness.
