“Conservative MSP Jamie Greene says there is a hung parliament and there is a ‘duty and an onus for all members of parliament, particularly new members of parliament, to make Brexit work. … That’s why I’m pleased there are 13 Scottish Conservative MSPs going down there.’
Mr Greene says Ruth Davidson accepts the result of the Brexit infeernedmum” http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/live/uk-scotland-scotland-politics-40193839?ns_mchannel=social&ns_source=twitter&ns_campaign=bbc_live&ns_linkname=593a4ce0e4b0831b67030422%26%27I%27m%20pleased%20there%20are%2013%20Scottish%20Conservative%20MSPs%27%26&ns_fee=0#post_593a4ce0e4b0831b67030422

Win:win: Conservative MSPs going to Westminster is good news for Scotland, and ‘infeernedmum’ is a good description of Brexit thus far.

Macabre Manifesto

“The Conservative manifesto features commitments to make CCTV mandatory in slaughterhouses, reform pet vending rules and to address live exports alongside their pledge to hold a vote on the repeal of the Hunting Act.” http://www.onekind.scot/onekindblog/article/how_is_animal_welfare_treated_in_in_the_ge2017_manifestos

When Conservatives address crowds of live exports, what will they speak about? Voting for Christmas?

Tough on crime: no more vending the rules. If you pay for an animal, you’re entitled to watch its death being dispensed.

Greensilence

“Soon after the election was called, Greenpeace revealed it was fined in an ‘act of civil disobedience’ for refusing to be regulated under the Lobbying Act … which requires civil society organisations and business lobbyists to register and restricts their activities in the run-up to polling day.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2017/jun/01/lobbying-act-stifling-environment-debate-in-election-campaign

Are we still able to vote for democracy?
