JIM Murphy has seemingly removed all mention of his brief stint as leader of Scottish Labour from his CV.

His time at the top was eventful for the party. Under his charge they went from having 40 MPs to being left with just one.

On the website for his consultancy company, Murphy mentions that he’s a former MP, a former cabinet minister who “served in senior positions in both Tony Blair’s and Gordon Brown’s governments”, and that he has “chaired myriad public and government bodies.”

He points out that he was also Shadow Secretary of State for Defence and Shadow Secretary of State for International Development.

He mentions his time as executive director for international governance at the Tony Blair Institute and that he serves as a Trustee of the Foundation for Jewish Heritage, an ambassador for the Internet Watch Foundation and is on the Advisory Board of the Community Security Trust.

Murphy is, he also points out, still a member of Her Majesty’s Privy Council.

And, finally, the website mentions he is the author of the “well-received book” the ten football matches that changed the world and the one that didn’t.

But no mention of the fact Murphy served as leader of Scottish Labour between December 13, 2014 until June 13, 2015.

He was – until Jackson Carlaw’s resignation last week – the shortest serving leader of a Scottish political party.

According to its website, Arden Strategies helps “run successful campaigns to be proud of” and can help “formulate campaign messaging, policy offer, clarity of political definition, activist mobilisation and voter turnout strategies.”

Recent accounts lodged with Companies House show the firm lists the value of current assets for Arden as £315,669. Last year it was just £35,272.
