Carlaw wins Scottish Conservative leadership race
11/02/2020 | news | uk | 390
Jackson Carlaw had been the party's interim leader since Ruth Davidson quit the role in August.
I can see why Scots would vote SNP; I’ve no idea why they would vote for this man and his English National Party of Boris Johnson? Remember polls show that Tory English Nationalists would rather see the end of the UK if it meant England got Brexit. Removed

1. Tooting Popular Front Polls show Tory English Nationalists would see the end of the UK if it meant England got Brexit. Those who lent their vote and want to ride off into the redneck bootlicking sunset with no scrutiny wouldn't want the same. Though the chance to abolish FoM probably tested even their resolve on that matter on the doorstep.

Plenty SNP Baaaaaad on this Scottish Tories HYS - but there's no Tory's good. Cummings will dissolve Scottish Tories after upcoming Holyrood elections paving the way for Indy Ref 2. btw if there is a Sco - NI bridge don't let Carlaw choose the design, he spends so little time here he forgot it gets chilly in winter.

This guy criticised the Scottish Government (SG) about the design of the Queensferry Bridge which resulted in it closing this week due to ice. He seem to have conveniently forgotten that he was head of the committee that approved the design ! But what can you expect from an ex secondhand car salesman: he's still trying to sell a dodgy thing - the Tories in Scotland !

@10 Nonsense. He criticised the Scottish government for not keeping the roads open. The design of the bridge doesnt come into it. People seem to forget that you can have the finest design in all the land, but if you don't carry out timely maintainence, which the SNP don't because they spend all the cash on independence rallies and free tuition, then the bridge will fail. Sturgeon is a clown.

"middle Scotland" - have you told English voters that loath you all? I mean, take your branch office politics to Tyneside, Wearside, Teesside and see what they think of Unionism.

Just as Brexiteers love to peddle mistruths about the EU, so unionists love to talk utter tripe about the SNP and wider Scottish independence movement. These people have a lot in common - both are motivated by fear and hate. Fortunately, intelligent people can see right through it. Keep at it - it’s stopping you from doing something that might actually help your cause, and so it helps us.

@66 " Fortunately, intelligent people can see through it. " - Intelligent Scots can see that separating from your biggest trading partner (5 times bigger than eu) and sending Ian Blackford down to London just to continually mouth off and abuse...HAS NOT SERVED SCOTLAND WELL. Sadly, the snp is not the party of intelligent Scots. It targets flag wavers and the low IQ instead. -

77 “It targets ... the low IQ instead” You completely misjudge the movement. Big mistake. Huge. And before you make careless statements about others’ intelligence, you might want to re-read your own post. Scotland has not, in fact, separated from ‘its largest trading partner’, as your post states. (“separating... has not served Scotland well”). It hasn’t happened, but it will, in time.

43. Posted by John D Brand There's nothing admirable about the way the SNP run a totalitarian political party where dissent even from within its own ranks is not allowed. I remember one of Cummings first acts was telling BoJo to fire some of the most loyal Tories for daring to vote against him - care to remind me of SNP doing anything similar.

Comments saying the SNP is a cult is rubbish, just because they are vastly more popular within their country than any other UK party does not make them a cult.

Scotland was created by the Romans. Before them all of the British Mainland was covered in squabbling Tribes who would have been the most Powerful State in Europe second only to Rome had they united. Thing is we didn't and we can't, because if there's one thing that defines us its the squabbling. Anyway, Ruth Davidson was good, fingers crossed for the new Guy being similar.

Had a quick look at the Scottish Tory manifesto. 1st comment, no to indyref 2nd part, manifesto commitments mainly controlled from westminster, like Brexit 3rd part, foreword by Boris Johnson Not sure why they're the "Scottish Conservatives" if there's no differentiation - maybe apart from saying "no to indy ref" a bit more than their Southern counterparts.

Best of luck to him. It is good to see a politician with some actual real life experience rather than a career politician living in cloud cuckoo land. First order of business for the Holyrood surely has to be getting Groomer MacKay to stand down. Removed
