    I am surprised this thread 'only' got as far as 119 posts. Where are all our Conservative supporters? Or is there really no positive reasons for voting Conservative?

    I imagine because they do not want to put up with the inevitable abuse!

    I'm considering self-identifying as Conservative in order to access Tory-only safe spaces and carry out unspeakable acts of perversion...like voting for Boris Johnson.

    Abuse? You mean debate?

    How dare anybody question a Conservative on here. They're beyond questioning.

    Given the title of the "Tory" thread on here, I think it's fair to say some abuse would be inevitable.

    People who vote conservative don't often shout from the rooftops about it.

    The majority do so (in my opinion) because they've done quite well for themselves and want to give as little back as possible, their priority being to "look after their own".

    It probably doesn't feel very good to type out, and you know you're going to get a whole load of abuse for it.

    I also don't think that there will be a very high number of conservative voters within the Hibs support. There will be some, but not many.

    It's much easier to express cuddly socialist sentiments, whether they are true and genuine or not, as they tend to paint you in a slightly kinder light, especially amidst the general consensus on Hibs.net.
    In terms of actual Tory politicians there have been a few. Older fans may recall Sir Alex Fletcher, who was a long serving Conservative MP for Edinburgh North (and possibly Central) back in the day when Edinburgh used to return its fair share of Conservative MPs.He was a big Hibs fan.

    Sir Malcolm Rifkind, who was Edinburgh Pentlands MP for nearly quarter of a century was more of a rugby man but was known to attend Easter Road in the company of his lifelong friend and great Hibby Brian Meek, former Convenor of Lothian Regional Council. Meek was also a well known sports journalist.

    More recently, Brexit MEP and former Conservative MSP Brian Monteith is a well kent Hibs fan.

    Monteith is also a journalist which brings to mind the late John Gibson of the Evening News, a lifelong Hibby and Tory.
