The Tories Would Sell Out Our Fishing Industry And Have Said As Much Before

The Tories would happily bargain with Scotland’s fishing industry and the First Minister highlighted yesterday, that the Tories once described Scottish fishermen as expendable. 


Would you trust the Tories with Scotland’s fishing industry?

Theresa May And The Tories Are Playing A Dangerous Game In Scotland

The major problem with the Scottish Tories is that they are very clearly misreading the political situation in Scotland. 

The Holyrood elections did not see Scotland uncharacteristicly run to embrace Conservatism but rather traditional Scottish Labour voters sought a refuge as their party was in the midst of dying a death. 
Scottish Labour voters saw a party so impotent and so inept that any meaningful vote cast for them would be wasted in the expected sea of yellow. It was with realisation that Scottish Labour voters crossed the floor and voted for a brash pretender with gall and effrontery and a desire to hold the First Minister to account. 

Ruth et al need to stop proclaiming that they’ve somehow turned Scotland blue; it is absolutely untrue and is being used to muddy the waters surrounding talks of a mandate and support for Conservatism and Unionism in Scotland. This, by extension, is being used to somehow paint the Prime Minister as some demigod who’s broken through in Scotland. 

She hasn’t and she’ll come to learn that Conservatism is not suddenly being embraced the length and breadth of Scotland. Labour died and the Tories picked up opposition votes from those determined to make a SNP government answer to a strong opposition.  

What do you think? Are the Tories playing a dangerous game?

Scottish Tory Leader Blasts First Minister And Tells Her To ‘Sit Down’ During Hollyrood’s #ScotRef Debate

Scottish Conservative and Unionist party leader Ruth Davidson blasted the First Minister and told her to ‘Sit Down’ during an intemperate outburst as Holyrood debated calls for a second independence referendum. The outburst came as the First Minister appeared to get to her feet to challenge claims by Ruth Davidson over a meeting with the Prime Minister yesterday.
