The tool

ff_davidson.pngAs we wearily condemn yet another instance of British betrayal, let us not forget the role played by the media in this latest bit of unabashed duplicity. The mainstream media helped peddle the utterly false notion of Ruth Davidson as a significant political leader commanding a small but powerful group of “Scottish Tory” MPs; regularly attending cabinet meetings at Downing Street, and exerting real influence within the British Government. It was all lies!

There is no such group! There are only British Tory MPs, some of whom happen to have managed to get themselves elected in Scotland. Those British Tory MPs take their orders from Theresa May and the British Tory Whips at Westminster, not Ruth Davidson. Other than for the purposes of the occasional photo-opp, there is no place reserved for Davidson at British cabinet meetings. On a scale of one to ten, Davidson’s influence isn’t on the scale of one to ten. In terms of British politics, she is several promotions away from the rank of nonentity.

Which is not to say she isn’t useful to her masters in London. It was expedient to market Davidson in Scotland as a politician of some substance in the hope of persuading voters here that there might be some point in voting for Tories. Affording their leader a high media profile was like giving Pan Drops to the Tory faithful in North Britainshire. Being crowned Queen of the BritNats helped persuade hardline Unionists to abandon British Labour in Scotland (BLiS) in favour of the British Conservative & Unionist Party in Scotland (BCUPS). Elevating Davidson to the status of First Minister-in-waiting was a ploy to divert attention from Nicola Sturgeon and maybe even diminish her in the eyes of the more gullible consumers of British propaganda.

In all of this, the British media have been totally complicit. They lie to us in order that the British political elite may more effectively deceive us. They mislead and misinform us to facilitate the duplicity and mendacity of British politicians. As part of the British establishment, the British media naturally serves established power. It cannot be otherwise. Considerations of veracity and accuracy simply don’t enter into it. Truth is whatever serves the structures of power, privilege and patronage which define the British state.

Ruth Davidson is a tool. She has been coldly utilised by her superiors in the British Tory party. She has been professionally exploited by the British media. When her usefulness is at an end – which may be far sooner than she would like – Davidson will be discarded like a snottery hanky.

But waste no pity on the wretch. She chose the role of puppet. As a British Nationalist, she is content to sacrifice her dignity for the greater glory of the British state. She could have chosen differently. She could have chosen to serve the people of Scotland. She could have chosen to serve democracy. She didn’t. Hell mend her!

  1. Is it a fault of Vanity or youth or downright stupidity? We all knew Ruth was ‘A tool’ in play.the others are just ‘attachments. Straight from .B&Q..Brainless & Qause..not what we need in a progressive Scotland.!


  2. Another good piece Peter. I remember my late friend and fellow rugby writer, Brian Meek, who was Convener of Lothian Region, was removed from his role as vice-President of the Tory Party in Scotland, after calling for the Scottish Tories to be more-Scottish-minded, and less an add-on to London rule.

    Back then, when the idea of the SNP ever forming the Scottish Executive – far-less a Scottish Government, was fanciful, maybe if more Tories had had Brian’s vision, the Scottish political landscape would be a bit different. However, the London control freaks and their puppets in Scotland could not see the wood for the trees.

    There may well be a revival in the fortunes of a right-of-centre, low taxation party in an independent Scotland, but only after a clear-out of the time-serving London puppets such as Colonel Yadaftie.

    Murdo Fraser, I seem to recall, was all-for a more-Scottish Tory Party in Scotland up here, before he realised, it was probably better for his career that he embraced the “true Tory faith” of “London Knows Beat, so dae whit yer telt.”


  3. Excellent piece .

    We are currently experiencing a blatant Tory damage limitation exercise re the great ‘betrayal’ of Scottish fisherman. The media are totally complicit in their false portrayal of both Ruth D and Scottish Tory MP’s as defenders of the Scottish waters ….sorry UK waters ….from the EU.

    We are expected to believe that fishing was not going to be offered as a sacrifice upon the Brexit altar even although the SNP have been warning of this very scenario and thus were condemned for voicing their concerns (and now correct predictions) by these very same Scottish Tories …..and right wing Brexit mad media.

    Life certainly does come at you fast .

    And just think how many times since the Brexit vote have we Scots been told that Brexit was a UK vote and is being overseen by the UK government . That being the case Scots fisherman who voted ‘Leave’ and also voted for a Scots Tory MP in the last GE should vent their anger upon those whom they placed their trust and gave their vote to.

    So Britnat politicians, media and individuals ‘Now is not the time’ to try and somehow drag the Scottish government into this dirty Brexit promise breaking arena and try to somehow implicate that they, the Scottish government, have any culpability , responsibility or indeed , thanks to Theresa ensuring devolved governments frozen out of Brexit talks, any opportunity to somehow have any impact on reversing this fiasco for the fishing communities.

    You see this is what happens when WM Tory reps negotiate from a ‘British’ (English) perspective . One wonders what they will negotiate away next….if , as the Scottish Tories claim, they have betrayed Scottish fisherman, one wonders what other Scottish resources/produce they will negotiate away…..during both Brexit talks and post Brexit trade agreements.

    If all else fails , well they, the Tories, can always just continue blaming the EU…..that always goes down well with the en masse rabid Brexit mob.

    Over to Mundell……


  4. This is an excellent piece Peter. How do we get it shared widely?
    I will paste a link in WOS if it’s not already there.


  5. Excellent piece once again, Mr Bell.

    Davidson just doesn’t see how she has been manipulated by her London masters. Scotland’s interests will only ever come first when Scotland is in charge of its own interests.

    BCUPS? ‘The Tool’ is a bigger tit than that, surely?
