Top Thirty Toxic Tories
No political party is perfect. They all have their idiots and bigots to deal with. There’s always that one uncle or step-sister which drives people insane, but they’re family, so what can you do?
But in Scotland the Tory family is different. They don’t have just a few idiots to deal. They have a lot. Sometimes it can be hard to follow up on all the bigots, and it doesn’t help either when Ruth Davidson does everything she can do avoid being held to account. But I’ve been keeping an eye on all the bigots and luckily for us I’ve organised a long and sourced list for us to follow.
So without further ado let’s meet them!
