Murray sends a message: do not divide us again

At his first campaign event in Edinburgh South, where he was joined by Scottish Labour leader Kezia Dugdale, Ian Murray today said Scots are fed up with the SNP’s obsession with a second independence referendum.

Voters in Edinburgh South are angry with Nicola Sturgeon for using their vote to Remain in the EU as a proxy vote for another independence referendum.

Campaigning at a local post office, Mr Murray sent his own message to Nicola Sturgeon – a letter outlining her failures as First Minister.

Mr Murray also wrote to Theresa May, outlining the dangers of a hard Brexit.

  1. Ian Murray is absolutely right: We don’t want to be divided. In fact, differences of opinion are such a threat to our peace and prosperity that it would be best if we never had any elections at all. Don’t remind people that there might be more than one point of view, more than one possible course of action! We need unity first and foremost! I say, let Her Majesty dissolve the Westminster parliament and all the devolved administrations, let’s do away with local councils as well; these are all just breeding grounds for disagreement and strife. Besides, it is way too stressful for us ordinary people to have to worry about politics and think for ourselves. Let the royals rule and I guarantee you: We will flourish in harmony and contentment. We need to take back control from the unelected, undemocratic EU and give it to our beloved Queen, who has only our best interest at heart and, being of royal blood, should know best what’s best for all of us.

    1. Go Annette

      saved me writing . Politics is about division , but there little to divide the red and blue Tories .

  2. Wow, ah that fa the man that was asking labour to vote for the tories in exchange for getting the tories in his consistency to vote for him.

    Definitely a man with more faces than the town clock.

    1. That’s untrue. Ian did no such thing.

      It always amuses me that you lot bang on about the dishonesty of the mainstream media right up to the point they say something which you can use against us, and then it’s all gospel. 🙂

      1. Nae, you can’t get oot this Duncan, its pretty widely reported, even your infamous spin an’it going save this one.

          1. “Labour’s sole surviving MP, Ian Murray, said he supported tactical voting to defeat the SNP, but said that meant Tory and Lib Dem voters had to switch sides too if their primary objective was to block the SNP.”

            Still unclear?

            “Labour’s sole surviving MP, Ian Murray, said he supported tactical voting to defeat the SNP,

            but said that meant Tory and Lib Dem voters had to switch sides too <<<<here<<<<

            if their primary objective was to block the SNP."

            It certainly looks to me as if it implies a quid pro quo, with Labour voters encouraged to vote for whichever candidate is second to the SNP, in seats where Labour is not that candidate.

          2. Except you’re quoting from a journalist, not from Ian. Those aren’t Ian’s words.

            Once again, you lot bang on about the dishonesty of the mainstream media but then pretend every single word is factual when it suits you. It’s hilarious.

  3. Lets see. Scotland is fairly evenly divided on independence. It is fairly evenly divided on a second referendum.
    How will we become LESS divided if we don’t have a second referendum? Because if we don’t, then half the population will be disappointed. If we do then the issue will be settled.

    By the way, its people like Murray and Davidson, who waffle on about a referendum day after day after day, who are scunnering the rest of us. Don’t you have other concerns to occupy yourself with, Mr Murray? Or do you hope this will be your ticket back to Westminster; on the back of a seconded Tory vote?

  4. Mr Loyal to the dear leader and to Labour wants us all to vote Tory or Lib Dem anywhere but Edinburgh South.

    Gawd bless the Tory disunion of the UK of GB.

    1. That’s untrue. Ian said no such thing.

      It always amuses me that you lot bang on about the dishonesty of the mainstream media right up to the point they say something which you can use against us, and then it’s all gospel.

    1. No, the boundary changes haven’t gone through. One effect of the snap election is that they now won’t go through until the next GE at the earliest. So we’re still electing 650 MPs.
