I’m still aching from reading their plans to build affordable homes. What next, a 12.5% pay rise just for Scottish nurses?
I know they’ve taken Ross off the campaign leaflets. Will they take the party name off too, like Jackie Baillie did with Labour?
Do they think some voters might believe they’re not like the UK Tories?
See this from the Guardian and Labour before they became Blairites again:
The Conservative party’s record on tackling the climate crisis has been condemned by leading scientists and former government advisers, as the Labour leader, Jeremy Corbyn, warned that the forthcoming election was the last chance to halt the escalating emergency. Experts accused the Conservatives of copying rightwing politicians in the US by deliberately weakening environmental protections. Meanwhile, analysis by Labour reveals that environmental policies put forward since 2017 and opposed by the Tories would have led to emissions reductions of over 70m tonnes a year by 2030 – more than the annual emissions of Portugal. Leading scientist David King, a key government adviser on the climate crisis until 2017, questioned whether Johnson could be trusted on the environment. He said he would give the Conservatives no more than three or four out of 10 for their record on tackling the climate crisis.
Conservatives to ban fox-hunting?
Conservatives to build safe injection rooms in posh areas?
Your turn. No idea too ridiculous.
