Jim Murphy

Glasgow, The United Kingdom

Jim Murphy is the Labour Member of Parliament for East Renfrewshire. He is a former UK Cabinet minister and has held a variety of ministerial roles in Tony Blair and Gordon Brown's governments. He was born and raised in Glasgow before his family emigrated to South Africa. In the 1980s, he returned to the UK to avoid conscription into the South African Army during the apartheid era. He has a lifelong love of football and is a Celtic season ticket holder, although at forty-six he is well past his footballing prime. The House of Commons football team is probably the only squad in the country where, despite his age, he would still be considered the youthful mid field box-to-box runner.
