Former chancellor Alistair Darling has announced that he is to stand down as an MP at the next general election.

In a parting shot, Mr Darling, who led the Better Together campaign in the Scottish independence referendum, threw his weight behind Jim Murphy to become Labour’s new leader in Scotland.

“Jim has the enthusiasm, the energy and above all he’s a fighter. For too long we have sat back when we needed to fight,” he told the Financial Times.
