REMEMBER when the Tories supported the Union? Yeah, me too…
No longer, it seems. What was once The Scottish Conservative and Unionist Party is now simply The Scottish Conservative Party, according to Alan Cochrane of the Telegraph.
Perhaps they have (wrongly) calculated that the word “unionist” is a turn-off to the near-70 per cent of Scottish voters who supported unionist parties in the last Holyrood elections.
Labour is now the only truly unionist party in Scotland, which will be a blow to those decent Tory voters and members who have effectively been told that support for the Union is now the policy that dare not speak its name.
