Scottish Labour 'to blame for defeat' - Unite's Len McCluskey

In an interview with Emily Maitlis for Thursday's Newsnight, Len McCluskey has laid the blame for Labour's defeat at the feet of Scottish Labour, and called on its leader, Jim Murphy, to go.

He said: "In Scotland my view is very very strongly that we have to say to the Scottish people we're sorry, for letting you down, for making you feel abandoned, and Scottish labour is under new management.

"I think Jim and his colleagues should just leave the scene."
