Polishing a turd?

Ooooh…miLUD!

The Herald’s Hannah Rodger writes:

THE LEADER of the Scottish Conservatives is calling for a reform of the House of Lords to be fairer to Scots and those from other devolved nations. Douglas Ross said the parliament’s second chamber needed a radical rethink, and a move away from its current London-centric membership.

As his party falls to third in polls, behind Richard Leonard’s Labour (!), Douglas Ross comes up with an idea or did Ruth suggest it to him to democratise the House of Lords.

I thought of the above headline all by myself. I leave it to readers to tell us what they think.

  1. What does DRossie REALLY want?
    Reform of the “old school tie club” to include the likes of him?
    That sounds about right–if a BBC tea lady can get in, why not a farm hand?
    Alas, for DRossie, the tea lady has a certain HEFT about herself–a willingness to get down and dirty and fight her corner.
    DRossie might think getting dirty—- but covered in dung isn’t the same thing as having DIRT on a certain B.J.–nope, rope-a-dope, it isnt the same thing at all!

    Meanwhile Foreign Secretary, Raab C Biscuit, pleads with the New President—“Joe”–
    “We will do anything, anything you want.
    We ARE your Foreign Legion.
    Ireland? England LOVES Ireland.
    Trump–we HATED Trump.
    Just call us–tell us what you want.
    Boris is your BIGGEST fan”!

    Fart! Blush! Fart! Gush!

    1. It does look like DRoss is keen on that £300+ a day for himself for services to the empire, what a little squirt.
      Love the descriptionof Rabb C biscuit, ‘we will do anything you want’ and boy will they crawl to Biden, their boss is gone, or at least going and I don’t think too many will shed a tear to see him dragged out of the WH.
      Puts the kybosch on Johnson’s plot to bully the EU some more, boo hoo boo hoo…it’s going to be very intesresting in the next few months. Not only has Biden got Covid19 mismanagement to fix, he has a small problem of Brexit in regard to his ancestral home of Ireland to contend with. that might make anyone a bit annoyed eh…
      Suck it up Tories and Johnson, the partys over as far as your bestie in the westie is concerned, you will need some new dodgy pals, but as people have pointed out the UK is now looking more isloated than ever.

    1. It will be easier getting Trump out of the White House, than forcing the “Scottish” Peers out of the “Palace of Dreams”!
      All the Barons and Dutchesses superglued to the red benches.

      Ffoulksakia, Mone and Big Bella, hingin’ on by their fingertips and teeth!

      Steel, MaCoalbunker, Ruthless and dozens and dozens more, trudging along with their pitiful bags full or ermine and tiarras, and sack-loads of expenses forms— all their worldly possessions in wooden carts—like second world war refugees from the steppes, pictured only in sepia.

      My heart will break for them! Hahahahaha!

      1. McConnell, the man who sent £1.5 billion back to London, and just to add insult to injury saying, ‘nothing to spend it on in Scotand’. Imagine doing that to your own country, no I can’t either.

  3. Of course nought of this Herald piece is what it says on the tin, it’s another promo for the Scottish Tories with DRoss given centre stage as has been the media habit of late, a man who knows how to milk – Note the combination of “to be fairer to Scots” and the “current London-centric membership”, neither of which is unique to the HOL, deliberate distraction from the fiasco which is the HOC.

    The entire apparatus of the British State is beyond repair for the majority in the UK, when blatant lies ceased to be an impediment to political career public trust was lost, the irony for Holyrood’s emulation is it is more visibly theatre with bloody awful actors.
    Nobody I know gives a damn who scored what political point when it’s not what you were elected to do, represent the public, yet the show goes on. That’s NOT politics, it’s taking the piss out of the electorate and Scots have quite enough of that.

    Once free of London’s dominion we need to have a serious debate over honesty in politics, DRoss can set up a consultancy advising cows on how best to be milked out of Forres, but I can guarantee a century on Black Rod will still be a thing in London…

  5. The only event which will force England to confront it’s feudal past and the baggage that still remains (HoL,global power etc etc) will be Scottish statehood.
    Even if they wish to continue to call themselves the UK or whatever,the psychological impact of “losing” Scotland will force them to reappraise.
    Otherwise,it is business as usual for the London establishment.

  6. As per usual Mr Ross is lacking in understanding the Scottish view on this Westminster monstrosity.
    We don’t wish to be part of it, we want it gone. Along with our membership in the other place.
    How thick can one man be?

  7. Getting shot of the HoL is one of the (many) reasons why I support Scottish independence. It bugged me during the 2014 indyref when folk like Foulkes and Broon got away with speaking against it in the media with no one pointing out their vested interest in keeping their HoL seats.
