The logic is impeccable

As they report, what is clear is that the opinion of Conservative Party members is likely to be significantly different to that of members of a Labour, the LibDems and SNP.

Tories are different.

Third, of course there are serious differences of view between Labour, the SNP, LibDems and the Greens too, come to that.

All other political parties are also different from each other.

But everyone must unite against the Tories. Presumably for vermine reasons.

  1. Tory voters are different to Labour voters. Tory politicians and Labour politicians, not so much.

  2. Ritchie’s 2017 accounts are out.

    Income down from £76k to £45k, of which £28k was from the Friends Provident Foundation. Nothing from the TUC or other NGO’s, looks like his break with Corbyn really pissed them off.

    The Friends Provident grant has now finished, so it looks like he’s only got his City University income plus some small consultancy fees.

  3. If he needs money and vermine, then he needs to target his lingual bidet services more directly at Nicola Sturgeon.

  4. As I understand it, he’s not a “professor” except in the etiolated US sense that every faculty member from lecturer on up is termed some variety of professor.

  5. I cannot imagine the monstrously bloated ego of Murphy would have settled for anything less that the title of Professor no matter how inapt it is.

  6. Well, with 3 Journal papers, he’s no academic. Engineers like myself would expect to have 40 or 50 publications by his age, although we are nowhere near as prolific as those in the purer sciences or those outside STEM.

    City is a newish Uni, but not a 1992 New University, therefore the pay and pensions are different from those in former Polytechnics (the New Universities of 1992). Doubly confusing, because City was Northampton Street Polytechnic Institute (at various times without the ‘Street’ and without the ‘Institute’) prior to the creating of the Polytechnics proper!

    Richard is spot on at £55 to 60k as a typical salary for a full time post of this ilk.

    Most academics would brag about their grant income and PhD supervisions. Where are they?

  7. Richard

    Murphy has an impressively consistent track record of failed relationships in his business, political and personal lives, including (we speculate) two ex-wives. It’s not an accident, it’s a character trait, and one of which he seems, from time to time, to be quite proud.

  8. Murphy’s also fallen out with his feet. Or, at least, he hasn’t seen them for some time.

  9. @Roué le Jour is correct

    Spud is correct too that the opinion of Conservative Party members is likely to be significantly different to that of members of a Labour, the LibDems and SNP.

    The problem is the Conservative MPs don’t reflect those opinions.

    The only difference between all the MPs is Conservatives are mostly in favour of lower taxes than all the rest. They are all big state socialists.

  10. BraveFart, indeed. But thank heavens that he is like that. Given the stupidity of his ideas, and the damage they would cause, it is just as well that he seems incapable of working with anyone else.

  11. I think we’re being unfair to direct our mockery only at Snippa, and to analyse his accounts for signs of manipulation to just come in at the limit where you start paying 40% income tax ( currently 45,001 ).
    It’s the people who hire him who should know better and who extend him invitations who should be mocked. Which is why when I hear about him on a radio programme I fire off an email to said show suggesting they’ve just embarrassed themselves being impressed by his non-existent qualifications, and suggest having someone else on instead next time.

  12. Bravefart,
    I cannot imagine the monstrously bloated ego of Murphy would have settled for anything less that the title of Professor no matter how inapt it is.

    I cannot imagine the monstrously bloated ego of Murphy would have settled for anything less that the title of Professor no matter how inept he is.

    There, fixed it for you, free and gratis.
