A bit of Scotch mist

This link takes you to a leaflet put out in the East Renfrewshire constituency of Europe Minister Jim Murphy. It bears the imprint of the Constituency Labour Party. East Renfrewshire was one of the ten UK constituencies where a referendum on the Lisbon Treaty was organised by iwantareferendum.com – NOT, I might add, by the Conservative or any other party.


When Mr. Murphy was asked about the gross misrepresentations in this leaflet he said that it was nothing to do with him, ‘you’ll have to ask the Labour Party!’
