    30 Inexplicable Photoshops Of Jim Murphy By Scottish Nationalists

    Since taking over as the leader of Scottish Labour, Murphy has become the most photoshopped man in politics. Most of the creations are utterly bizarre.

    1. Scottish nationalists don't like the leader of Scottish Labour, Jim Murphy, very much.

    2. In fact, Murphy, who campaigned against independence, is probably their least favourite person.
