What, the Scottish Tories have policies but should give us all a doing with their presentation skills?

In the Scotsman today, Prof Tomkins back at Glasgow Uni, but hopefully not doing something like teaching where you need to be interested or research where you need to be honest, so probably management, has a great idea to help the Scottish Tories beat the SNP.

Policies won’t be enough, he insists. Well thank Frank for that, eh? What policies have they got? Eh, there’s, em, oh yes:

  • No to Indyref2
  • No to Indyref2
  • No to progressive taxation
  • No to land reform
  • No to taking away private schools charitable status
  • No to banning fox hunting
  • No to Indyref2
  • No to banning Trident
  • No to charges for car parking big cars like Murdo’s at work
  • No to banning chlorinated chicken
  • No to informing the poor or the disabled about their benefits
  • No to just about everything most normal folk want
  • No to election spending limits
  • No to Indyref2

OK, so they shouldn’t rely on those but go for presentation?

And, so, a football referee with a record of not turning up at Parliament, obsessed with ‘gypsies’ and accused of having been a school bully, that kind of image?

And, to hold the fort until he gets shoed in, a former TA corporal with a penchant for fighting talk – giving the opposition a doing or a kicking – that kind of image?

A Scottish Mark Francois? Is that it?

  1. Stephen Daisley very active these days , think he is of the opinion there could be a big conversion in Scotland to Toryism , with the wonderful PM and magnificent Ruthie and Dougy alliance . I have a bridge to sell Stephen ! .

  2. I keep seeing photos of Douglas Ross and Ruth Davidson together in the Grassmarket. Does anyone know when these were taken? If it was just before the defenestration of Jackson Carlaw then that could be revealing.

    1. Yep. The photos were taken on Friday. So sudden, unexpected resignation by Carlaw after FMQ on Thursday. By Friday DRoss emerges as the only candidate for leader with a pact with Davidson all set up with a photo op.. And all the PR images pre-prepared for facebook.

      Oh no, there wasn’t a plot.

  3. Och, John, you’re too hard on the poor souls. They are quite positive in their support for the expansion of membership of the House of Lords. 🙂

  4. Sort of relevant, Michelle Ballentyne will only support Ross if he gets behind Boris and supports Brexit, eh! I know, I’m struggling with the why the need for that statement as they have so obviously been supporting Boris.

  5. Did anyone else get an advert for shoes just after this sentence? “And, to hold the fort until he gets shoed in, a former TA corporal with a penchant for fighting talk – giving the opposition a doing or a kicking – that kind of image?” Spooky cookies!
