Scottish Tories Suspend Chief Spinner Ramsay Jones

On Sunday Guido shared the news that the Scottish Conservative Party’s spin-doctor Ramsay Jones had been busted attending a campaign meeting for Ruth Davidson, one of the candidates for  the Party’s leadership. A bit of a problem given party staff are meant to be staying neutral.

This afternoon the decision was taken to suspend him while the allegations are investigated. At the very least he will be out of action for the rest of the campaign. The announcement was timed just as conference closed. Davidson has become the establishment candidate and questions are now being asked about how “neutral” the rest of the party staff are…

    I have no idea why the tories think they want a presence in scotland. They never win any votes there.

    just cancel out the barnett formula and give scotland to the scottish. Let them get on with it whilst we rebuild our economy with our own money.

            Credit Easing announced by Osborne means that Operation Merlin has failed and that the banks have not kept to their part of the bargain. It was agree that they could keep their obscene bonuses and in return they would increase lending to SMEs- they have not hence credit easing to SMEs. So we the taxpayers prop up banks and bankers bonuses through our tax and now SMEs. It is a frigging joke. The Tory part y are taking the piss, i will not vote for them again. Work longer, pat more taxes when they cannot add up or keep their word on anything.

      Nell you ignorant old Goat, are you aware that the Tories once commanded over 50 % of the vote in Scotland. No I don’t suppose you are ensconced under your turnips in East Anglia, possibly the most irrelevant part of the country.

    • 49
      Bolshevik Broadcasting Corpse says:

      There’s plenty of Tories in Scotland.

      The problem is:

      1. The constituency boundaries are rigged.
      2. The current party in Scotland is lacklustre and low profile.
      3. Locally there is ONLY left wing press and media, and the national media tends to completely ignore the criminal excesses of Edinburgh and Glasgow councils, for example. Of course, the local media does too — because they have vested interests. Guido covered Stephen Purcell — but neither the Mail nor Telegraph did in any detail. Nobody in the national media is covering the billion pound tram disaster in Edinburgh to any extent.

      Having an ugly lesbian as Party leader is all very PC and progressive, and it could be that’s she’s remarkably intelligent — however, nobody has ever heard of her before. Nobody is going to vote for the Tories with her in charge. Not even Tories. Nobody. Not that politics should be all about style — but currently the Scottish Tories are so drab, uninteresting and lacking in character, that no-one even notices they exist.

      So… it’s probably good that at least one of their spinners has gone, because the Party’s spinners in Scotland sure are not doing a damn thing to raise the party profile.

    Now along comes dave and gives government and local government the unwelcome message that you have to get off your buts ( and butts) and start achieving something useful for a change.

    Dave the Raves speech todaywas one of the most cringeworthy I have heard for some time.
    Big on PR and light on what really matters.
    We all know about Liebours mismanagement and the useless sandal wearers.
    But I am absolutely gobsmacked at hearing a Con talk so much drivel.

        two left feet says:

        Just like the useless referees in professional football who are constantly shown to be wrong (but only after the event). At least in professional cricket the umpires have the benefit of instant replays in cases of doubt, so everybody can be sure that the right decision is made and the game can proceed without unneccessary rancour. That is why such technology supervised by an independent official is also urgently required in profesional football.

    A ‘world’s hottest curry-eating contest’ turned into a disaster after two of the participants were admitted to hospital, the Scottish Ambulance Service has said. The ‘Killer Kismot Curry’ contest, held in aid of a children’s charity, took place at the Kismot Indian restaurant in Edinburgh on Saturday afternoon. While battling it out, some of the contestants became unwell, reacting badly to the curry by vomiting and fainting.

    not a machine says:

    Larry le chat : origionally employed as a good ratter (and had some notoritry), understands the situation a little better at this erm delicate time , as our EU chums continue with the game of whos debt is it . My analysis of why this ecnomic problem is not like previous ones , is not only due to the debt (that is symptom) , it is one of cost ratio to public sector spend , the ruin (and the EU) have given corporate profit via personal debt , and not as in a more pure understanding of capitalism , profit/spending purley from work and goods , by increasing public spending/borrowing on the back of personal credit for corporate goods , the concept of money or sound money has been utterly eroded and so too the econmomics of public capital infrastructure from sound money taxation .

    Yes I do fully blame labour and the ruin for wonkenomics as Ms vadera proved again tonight the picture of this mess is impressionist from a finance perspective and not an ecnomic one , just as labour failed on the somthing for nothing culture , a bigger failure is perhaps in labour losing 1.2mn manufacturing jobs when we had the good times , my point being that even after any financial implosion , even the touted 400,000 jobs boost from concreting the countryside ……….. and then what ? 1500 at google , i mean wow , can nobody see in order to finance the beneficial leap of the manufacturing economy , you know , you have to actually run the finance system based upon it , you know with people in work saving and spending there own future . doesnt anyone see that when you have to start inventing strange new projects , that somthing may have gone wrong with the sound money foundations of manufacturing for the home market let alone the export one .
    barroso now wants some er more urgent powers of fiscal union , he doesnt get it , the cost of certain finaced goods is too high for the ammount of people with good enough jobs to have credit , the corporate model is eating itself as it has led to extra public sector cost being funded by taxation , that is killing the credit to buy the expensive goods .

    Since 2008 the Eu has had the oppertunity to recapitalise and avoid this , and has done nothing , in my view , the eu must take cuts to enable cost of membership to be reduced , the poor eurozone assets/debts must be taken out of the eurozone banks and placed in a eurozone winding up facility run as part of ECB , If as I believe full eurozone fiscal union , will not solve the differing ecnomic functioning of countries , thereby resulting in the sort of two teir europe many of us thinks must exist, and never will rebalance ,then a reversion back to national currencies is the only solution , but with certain new fiscal rules for being in the EU . End result should be centralisation wonk land ends and the ecnomcis discussion can begin .

      TV Tax frozen somehow requires a 20% cut in budget? So then you read this 20% cut is over four years. So a 5% per year ‘cut’. But why any ‘cut’ at all? Just freeze their wages.

      If I were to actually do any work then I’d see a pay-freeze as – well – a pay-freeze. I wouldn’t see it as a 20% ‘cut’.

      What weird economic model do these bedwetters use?

        Don’t forget they have to service the debt on their vainglorious move to Salford Quays (we should warn the poor darlings to avoid the real Salford, as metrosexuals are only welcome there as muggees and coke customers…).

        They should have kept the Oxford St studios – far more convenient for Canal St and the ‘gay village’.

A confused Nick Griffin says Nigel Farage is a shill for the City, forgetting that City banks want to stay in the EU:

“Farage is a snake oil salesman, but a very good one. His supposed anti-immigration stance is all smoke and mirrors, as is his carefully cultivated image as a ‘man of the people’. The truth is that UKIP is a pro-immigration party that exists to lobby for the interests of the City of London.”

It’s money innit.
