Labour MP Jim Murphy will be in the Western Isles once again for the latest leg of his ‘100 Towns in 100 days’ tour as part of the ‘Better Together’ campaign.

The MP for East Renfrewshire has already been to Barra as part of his tour which sees him campaign for Scotland to remain within the union.

“It’s just a type of good old fashioned politics,” he wrote on his blog while flying to Barra. “Me, a microphone and whoever turns up. I’ll also have with me two Irn-Bru crates to stand on as a stage when needed - one for each of my size thirteen feet.”

On Monday 28th July at 7.30pm Mr Murphy will hold a street meeting in Perceval Square, Stornoway. On Tuesday 29th he will be on Pier Road in Tarbert, Isle of Harris, at 10.30am before going onto the South Harris Agricultural Show. He will then hold a public meeting at Balivanich Hall in Benbecula at 7.30pm that night.

The next day, Wednesday 30th, Mr Murphy will hold another street meeting, this time beside Balivanich Post Office in Benbecula at 9am.
