It has been suggested that I should highlight that what follows is not written by me but reproduced without amendment from a comment posted on my blog site by a reader.
With branches across Scotland in absolute uproar it is difficult to see how this will play out well for those who have rigged the selection process.
In my own constituency the strong and able favourite candidate was rejected at vetting at the very last moment whilst the chosen leadership woke candidate was vetted and approved and had commenced his campaign early doors.
That at the very last moment two candidates were added to the list without anyone in the branch or CA executive knowing the arrangements for balloting – timetable were then changed throwing in to disarray previously arranged hustings.
So, what we have is the early vetting approval of favoured candidate, the early commencement of his campaign, the late rejection of the popular and capable candidate on spurious grounds by the vetting committee, a rejection at appeal despite widespread support testimony from all manner of colleagues, the last second unannounced Addition of what can only be described as two serial ballot spoiler candidates – and the leadership expect the local constituency to buy this.
Well they have another thing coming and this is not going to play out as the leadership connived. Members have had enough and the chosen one will not I predict be elected. Of that there is now absolutely no chance.
Thank you Mr Lawson for bringing this poison, this cancer to peoples attention. Folk across Scotland can now see the extent of the poison that curses through every process in our party. And that knowledge, now laid bare, will be the gestation of kill or cure.
The comment above is published in full and without amendment. Members ignore this type of thing at their peril.
I remain, as always
