A SENIOR Scottish Tory (http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/all-about/scottish-conservative-party) welcomed Rangers’ Scottish Cup win over Celtic (http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/sport/football/football-match-reports/rangers-stun-celtic-championship-outfit-7774706) as the “perfect birthday present” for the Queen.
The party’s finance chief Murdo Fraser (http://www.dailyrecord.co.uk/lifestyle/motoring/msp-murdo-fraser-collects-top-6604677) , who is hoping to be elected to the Scottish Parliament in May, Tweeted: “Rangers 5 Celtic 4 - The Queen’s 11 deliver Her Majesty the perfect Birthday present #ScottishCup #GSTQ.”

The same account has been tweeting political stuff, before and after the Tweets in question.

He followed up his Queen's 11 comment with something along the lines of "notable that I'm getting a lot of abuse from people with shamrocks in their profiles." He got pelters for that from fans of many clubs.

He has previous for this when the Huns were going under and wrote to Duff and Phelps (remember them) pleading for them to not liquidate the Huns as we needed Rangers and it would be a disaster for Scottish Football if they were liquidated. All this done on tax payers money and offical MSP headed letters etc.

Thing is if the Tories do worse than expected at the Scottish elections, remember they thought they were going to beat labour for 2nd place but have recently started to slip in the polls, then Ruth Davidson could be punted as party leader...

He stood against Davidson last time round but was unsuccessful - not to say he wouldn't fancy a second crack at it. The irony is that his plans if he became leader were pretty progressive - seeking to rebrand the party, change the name etc - obviously keeping the Unionist bit though!

Fraser must be banking on the fact there's a large Rangers-supporting contingent in his constituency to have come out with something like that. Ruth Davidson must be fizzing. I actually like her, but to have this guy come out with guff like that will do nothing to help her cause.

As well as Brian Monteith, another well-kent Hibs-supporting Edinburgh journalist John Gibson is a staunch Tory (not sure he's still around mind you).

I also recall our Skol Cup-winning captain Murdo MacLeod campaigning for the Tories a few years back. There was also a player from the late 70s whose name escapes me but who I recall not seeing eye to eye with Jackie 'The Red' McNamara due to his admiration for Margaret Thatcher!

Terry Butcher is, of course, a well-known Tory voter and those old enough to remember David Rowland from the Mercer takeover era may recall he was a former Tory Party treasurer prior to being brought to the club by David Duff and Jim Gray, though you could hardly call him a Hibs fan given that he did his best to bury the club!

Might be wrong but I seem to recall former long-serving Edinburgh Conservative MP Malcolm Rifkind being a Hibs fan too.

Oh, and somebody's just reminded of Ramsay Dalgety QC, who used to be chairman (?) of the Hibs Shareholders Association. He was an Edinburgh Tory Councillor who some may recall speaking passionately at the Hands Off Hibs rally. Think he ended up in some bother abroad a few years back.

And last, but certainly not least, the late great Brian Meek. Veteran Edinburgh Conservative councillor and journalist who was a lifelong Hibby. One of life's good guys.

You're absolutely right. Such things have no place in a football stadium. Pre-liquidation Celtic actually used to irritate me more than Rangers with their religious/political baggage, but since The Rangers came into existence they rile me far more. This is a club which was presented with an opportunity to leave all that behind, set down a constitution based on a future free of such baggage and basically join the more civilised societies of the 21st Century. If anything, they appear to have gone backwards, fuelled by a bitter perception that their club in its former incarnation was in some way unfairly treated. Their arrogance remains nauseating.

If you want a "kissass monarchist" look no further than our fat Jambo pal, Alex Salmond.

Salmond was widely reported, when he was still first minister of Scotland, giving a gushing interview about the Queen in which he said an independent Scotland would keep the Queen as head of state while England would be better off as a republic (I kid you not).

Salmond said he loved the royal wedding, which he attended, because it broke the traditional "English reserve" and ushered in a "carnival like atmosphere" which he likened to Hogmanay (lol). He went on to say he missed a trick after failing to plaster Edinburgh in royal colours.

Presumably therefore you would class Salmond as a "pure bampot" too?

I have little doubt that Salmond was ruffling a few feather boas there. And he's not wrong with what he said about the link between the Monarchy and class in England.

Feel like the thread has gone a bit wonky though. Can't check in work but did he delete the tweets or stand by them and has any media picked up on it?

Don't know about tweets, but Salmond made the statements I mentioned in an interview with James MacIntyre, the politics editor of Prospect magazine.

Even long before that interview, in an exchange in The Independent, in an answer to a question about the Queen continuing to be Queen of an independent Scotland, Salmond was quoted as follows:

"The Queen will be Elizabeth of Scotland in the same way as she is Queen today in Canada, Australia and a host of other Commonwealth nations."

So? It was well known that we'd keep the Monarchy had Scotland voted yes. One thing at a time :wink:

So? I was replying to an earlier post referring to Fraser as a "kissass monarchist", and pointing out he's far from the only one. Salmond being a prime example. See also post #80 for further evidence of this.

The poster calls Fraser a "kissass monarchist", but not Salmond. See his/her nonsensical reply below.

PS: Who says Scotland would "keep the monarchy had Scotland voted yes."? Just because it's SNP policy to keep the Queen as head of state in the event of independence, doesn't necessarily mean it's going to happen. There are lots of people in the SNP who don't want that to happen, but they are being kept quiet on that.

PPS: I don't like Fraser, but Nats should understand that people in glass houses shouldn't throw stones, and that if they do they should expect to be challenged. Seems fair to me.


No I would not class oor Alex as a 'pure bampot'.

He is a colorful character and a fierce scottish patriot.

In contrast pure bampot murdo fraser is a kissass.

You do make an intelligent argument though! :greengrin

You don't I'm afraid. DUX. :rolleyes:

If you want a "kissass monarchist" look no further than our fat Jambo pal, Alex Salmond.

Salmond was widely reported, when he was still first minister of Scotland, giving a gushing interview about the Queen in which he said an independent Scotland would keep the Queen as head of state while England would be better off as a republic (I kid you not).

Salmond said he loved the royal wedding, which he attended, because it broke the traditional "English reserve" and ushered in a "carnival like atmosphere" which he likened to Hogmanay (lol). He went on to say he missed a trick after failing to plaster Edinburgh in royal colours.

Presumably therefore you would class Salmond as a "pure bampot" too?


Yes

Do you still not understand that the government in an Independent Scotland would not necessarily be SNP?

I actually don't like or trust any tories. Salmond does not come across other than smug to some, but he sticks by his guns, and does not tell a pack of lies. he also despises the house of lords, and I hope he helps to bring them doon like a pack of cards eventually.

Now that did make me laugh

Kezia Dugdale has gone from zero to hero/ine ( I know you're a devout feminist if you're reading Kezia hence hero/ine).

I now love you to bits xxx

Will even consider voting Labour now xxx

Yes I do understand that. Amazing eh? What do you think is the most likely were that ever to happen?

Anyway, what's that got to do with fat boy Salmond being a "kiss ass" monarchist? As well as Fraser.

Where have you been for the last 5 years? EU membership? Sterling? NHS privatisation? Read the White Paper and then read your line again.

Sorry lads, going off track on the post here.

Oor Alex did'nt talk about the rangers being the 'Queens Eleven' like kissass Fraser.

I like oor Alex and Nicola along with a lot of the SNP.

I can't stand the tories but I can't help but be proud that you genuinely don't get your political beliefs free when you support Hibs and that all colours of the political rainbow can stand side by side in support of our magnificent club.

As it should be! Well said.

Crivens. Nothing's up with me DUX. Just having a wee laugh.

Time for me to butt out of this thread. It should maybe have been with the threads discussing political stuff that I usually (but not always) steer clear of.

monteith? he's the only tory Hibby I ken, and not by association
I had a lot of time for the late Brian Meek who was a Hibs supporter. He was a Tory councillor for Colinton for many years but the 'forces of darkness' (Thatcher et al) ensured he would be vetoed in his attempts to become an MP.
