The Scottish Tories so bad Ruth wants to kick some of them out and replace them with what, we wonder?

Ruth has at last noticed that some of her MSPs are not ‘up-to-scratch’ and wants to replace them with higher calibre candidates for the next election. She’ll have a hard time finding any. We don’t need to go near the accusations of paedophilia levelled against several senior UK Tories to realise this is a party which has always had a flexible view of morality. It attracts the wrong sort for any decent democracy.

You’ve probably heard of the most recent case where MSP Finlay Carson, spokesman on the digital economy, paid his own company, co-run by his brother, a four-figure sum to build his website using a ‘free-to-use’ content management system. He then claimed the costs as expenses.

Before the last Holyrood election, I posted a list of some of reasons Ruth must have been aware before then to enable her to avoid some of these ‘people’:

Donald Gatt elected to Keith and Cullen stood for UKIP before and commenting on free meals for P1 pupils, is reported to have said that those who cannot afford to feed their children should use a contraceptive.

Neil Graham, a Paisley councillor, had his contact details on a leaked BNP database. I downloaded that myself at the time and found a near neighbour on it!

Ian James, for Strathtay, was reported to have praised a speech by UKIP MEP Steven Woolfe and bemoaned the lack of characters like Enoch Powell in the tory Pary leadership campaign.

Most pathetic was Fife teacher Kathleen Leslie (above) who described Nicola Sturgeon as a “drooling hag”, a “wee fish wife” and a “walking horror show”. This is a teacher, a role model for young people, who teaches what…..English? Is she that braw hereself

Ken MacBrayne for Benbecula and North Uist, Roxana Iancu for Glasgow and George McIntyre for midlothian were caught in time and dropped, after anti-Muslim rants by them were allegedly identified.

Finally, David Wilson of Inverclyde was reported to have asked gay people to out themselves during a public meeting during which a donation to an LGBT group had been moved.

There have been more cases since including, recently, Millionaire Alexander Burnett threatened with the loss of parliamentary privileges for tabling questions designed to help his own business interests.

Here are links to more of the evidence:

Phew, Scottish Tories are still bigots, racists [and penis fantasizers]. I was worried they might be changing.

Open Democracy Expose bad smell in funding of Scottish Tories

I told you. Tories cannot contain their inherent nastiness.

    Did Davidson not have a “cull” of the Tory deadwood before the 2016 election? When she herself did a midnight bunk from Glasgow to Edinburgh. Next up a flit to the Home Counties?
    She is faced in Scotland with the same old Tory dilemma: Tories tend to be selfish, despicable sociopaths. Not all of course, but they generally have no empathy for those who fall by the wayside, or the small number who just cannot cope( physically, mentally) with life.
    The Scottish Tories have never replaced people of the calibre of Alec Buchanan-Smith or George Youngers in the Party.
    Now the Blue-Rinse Brigade think putting up mouthy Britnat fanatics is the way to go. Gawkies with a fine line in online abuse, and whose main ambition is to keep Scottish ambitions in check, and in thrall to London interests.

      All too true. The nasty party. I’d thought sociopaths were estimated at only 10% of the population. Clearly it’s more.

    Hi John – Hi all.

    Apparently The Col. is to take part in a special ‘charity’ episode of ‘The Great BritNat Bake Off’. She can already provide a wide array of her famous ‘The Col’s Fruit and Nut Cakes’ so doesn’t have to spend any time in preparation.

    Update: Nil mention of Finlay Carson’s fall from grace on the beeb website that I could see in my rapid scan through.

    Cheers, ludo

      On the plus side – if her constituents tune in then at least they will be able to see her 🙂

      After cheering her on before the election, BBC News are leaving her alone for obvious reasons. Peak Tory has clearly passed.

    Any truth in the rumour that Douglas Ross MP has given her the recipe for the wonderful romani dessert Pirogo for her ‘celebrity’ Great BritNat Bake Off’ appearance?

    (Noodle Pudding: flat noodles, cream cheese, currants and raisins, layered and dotted with butter. Then bake.) mmmm – really delicious.

    Thanks, ludo

    Hi John – thanks for your earlier advice re. dangers of overdoing coffee – just for the record a slice of Pirogo should really be accompanied by a small cup of strong romani coffee!!

    Another piece of evidence for the prosecution (since she’s a Col. maybe I should say for the Court Martial?):

    Info from today’s National: THE Tory MP for Borders constituency Berwick, Roxburgh and Selkirk has defended his expenses claim while working as an MSP – after receiving much higher sums than SNP counterparts.

    Over the last five years, John Lamont claimed £168,844 in total, while Christine Grahame, the SNP MSP for Midlothian South, Tweeddale and Lauderdale, claimed £98,830 and Paul Wheelhouse, a regional MSP for South Scotland, claimed £85,962.

    In his last full year at Holyrood, he (John Lamont) claimed total allowances of £34,217 while Grahame claimed £19,249 and Wheelhouse £16,169

    “I was a very active MSP and as a member of parliament I intend to continue to hold advice surgeries, meet with local businesses and organisations and help out as many constituents as possible.”

    (Maybe he needs to have a word with The Col. – Last week we learned that since the Hollyrood election she has held a single Constituency Surgery (too busy getting on with the Day job I expect?) – something I’m sure that such an ‘active’ (and costly) MSP as Mr. Lamont would find reprehensible no doubt?)

    Ta, Ludo

      Ruthie hasn’t quite grasped the “getting elected” thingy yet. She was always bottom of the heap, with 5% and 6% of the punters.
      Didn’t stop her. Even long serving Tories bit the dust to clear a path for the anointed one.

      I await her winning dance on Strictly, her giving it laldy on Eurovision, Mastermind, Masterchef, of course the National will be just a daudle and she may be gracious enough grant Prince Charlie a short Audience on his Accession.
