How now Brown's Vow - update...

My local Tory MSP, the one who was pushing moves to a more federal UK Union in my local newspaper last week, has announced he will not be standing for re-election in May 2016.

I wonder if this is just co-incidence or maybe one weel kent and highly regarded Scottish Conservative and Unionist (he was presiding officer for a while), an old fashioned one nation Tory to boot, has had enough of the stupidity of his bosses in the party's London HQ with regards Holyrood, the Vow and the Smith Report. 

I understand he does not have much time for Ms Davidson who he is rumoured to consider a political 'light weight' run from London. In essence the suggestion is the Scottish Tories are in the same boat as 'Scotch' Labour - merely a branch office who have to do what they are telt.

Wonder how many other Conservative MSPs will be leaving Holyrood to spend more time with their families ...


  1. Hopefully, every last one of them.

  2. I echo jimnarlene that we lose every one of them. I will give your man some praise he was a decent Presiding Officer.
