Whats The Tory Election Glory ?

Not in Coatbridge by the look of it .

THE Conservative candidate standing in Coatbridge may well have upset the town’s large Irish community - because he said Britain will one day rule Ireland again and the Irish will be slaves.
Teenager Ross Thomson is fighting his first election battle for the Tories but has sparked a major political row in the town which claims to have the largest Irish presence in Scotland.
The 19-year-old Politics and International Relations student tried to distance himself from the comments when the Advertiser approached him.
He said: “I have an Irish friend, from Cork in the Republic of Ireland and it’s an ongoing joke. I don’t seriously believe that Ireland should be ruled by Britain. I don’t seriously believe the Irish should be slaves.
“These comments were never intended for public consumption. I really am disappointed you are doing this to me.”

It appears he was mucking around on a blog and it was all taken out of context. I `m sorry but I really cannot excuse this behaviour and I trust he will be disciplined by the Party,….( snicker)..

Good luck to the all the fine Conservative Candidates and confusion to the enemy .
