Should the Tories disband in scotland and a new centre right party be set up? Probably, but they won't. In their last leadership elections, which Ruth Davidson won, Murdo Fraser suggested that the Scottish Conservatives should step outside the direct line of command from the UK party and establish an independent Scottish Conservative Party. He got roundly beaten. Yes, it would potentially restore some of the credibility they haven't had for years, but when your party has been responsible for some of the worst decisions ever inflicted on Scotland for decades it's going to take more than a rebranding to sort that out. I would also point out that in the 1950's they did indeed take a majority of Scottish seats. But then in the 1950's the Tories were the party of Home Rule; they actively campaigned for home rule. The current lot are well and truly removed from that. And come to that, suggesting Labour are a centre left party these days; no, they're not. See some of the policies least popular with the people that the Tory/ Lib Dem coalition has introduced? The Bedroom tax was a Labour idea to start with, and the company responsible for the medical assessments, Atos Healthcare? Contracted by the last Labour government to carry out the checks that the Tories are now getting the blame for. UK Labour, and their Scottish wing, are no more left wing than David Cameron.
Hello Scotland - SNP's Hatred For David Cameron? I think you'll find that it's not the SNP who dislike David Cameron - it's all of Scotland. David Cameron stated just the other day that Kenny McCaskill, the Justice Minister should not have released Al Megrahi. He doesn't seem to have realised that it's got absolutely nothing to do with him (or the Americans either) but is an internal Scottish matter. Hence Cameron 'not understanding the reality of Scottish self government' The Conservative party voted en masse against devolved government for Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland - hence 'David Cameron and the Tories oppose the right of the people to choose Scotland's future' And finally, 'disrespect to Scotland'? Where does one start? Nuclear weapons on the Clyde is just the end of a long list. Funny how they're never positioned on the Thames, just beside Tower Bridge. Remember the Poll Tax? Hell, British Government legislation exists that denies Scotland's people and institutions the right to fly the Scottish national flag from schools and public buildings, except on St. Andrew's Day. The joke at the moment is - 'How many Tory MP's does it take to change a light bulb? He can't change it until he gets a Lib Dem to hold the chair for him'. Of course, in the past the answer has changed from 'both of them' to 'what's a Scottish Tory MP'
If you had to assign a song to represent David Cameron's Conservative government, what would it be?
Michel Barnier, said the British people need to be educated about the consequences of leaving the single market? The EU probably cannot believe their luck at being able to get rid of the UK and be paid for doing so too. But's that's just a tad too cynical. Certainly the UK electorate were lied to by the Brexit side and not told what they really needed to know by the remain side, lest David Cameron might look like a rat cornered by the anti-EU wing of his Conservative Party. However, when given the opportunity to cancel Brexit (by voting Lib Dem at the last election) the vast majority couldn't be bothered. Clearly there is one hell of a lot of 're-educating' to be done!
How far to the Right does England need to move to protect traditional values and culture......? There is no right wing party in the UK, it's generally referred to as the conservative party. We have a group claiming to be the conservative party in the UK, what exactly are they conserving? Mass immigration is still increasing under them, the British people still have their laws dictated to them by the unelected governing body of EU bearcats and David Cameron wont give us an in out referendum . Mohammed was the most popular baby name in all of Britain last year, good strong British name is it not. There is nothing that can be done, English people are a minority in most of these places you mentioned, and the majority (of Muslims immigrants) do not/cannot integrate with the minority of indigenous. Even if Muslims wanted to adopt British culture and values, which they don't and I'd argue impossible, it's not how integration works. The one assimilating is suppose to be the minority. In every country across the world it's the same problems with Muslim demographics, it's time to stop blaming everyone else and hold them socially responsible. Do it now before they elect a Muslim Bortherhood of their own into parliament, which they will do when they have numbers.
Conservatives hold Birmingham conference saying 'we're kinder'.At same time B'ham hit with £180 Million Public Service Cuts. Where's reality? Reality has no place in a conservative party conference.

Does the Conservative Party of Canada have a ban on abortion in its platform? It would either be an outright ban (outlawed) or a ban on the public funding part (health care being all public in Canada). But I'm just asking: is there such a thing in their platform?
Should I avoid providing a copy of my passport to a third party to secure a visa to travel to Russia for a conference? I'm a Ph.D. student from the United States, and I'm planning on attending an academic conference in Moscow this December as a participant (not an invited speaker). When I attempt to register for the conference, I'm asked whether I need a visa, and when I respond that I do, I'm told that I need to send a digital scan of my passport to an email address that I assume belongs to one of the assistant conference organizers. I understand that this is probably standard operating procedure, but I've never traveled to Russia before, and I'm a little wary of providing a copy of my passport to somebody I don't know who isn't affiliated with a governmental organization. I do know several of the professors and researchers who are speaking, but they all hold Russian citizenship, so I don't think any of them have to go through the same process of acquiring a visa through the host university.(1) How large are the potential repercussions of sending a copy of my passport to somebody in Russia who I presume is affiliated with the host university but whom I don't know personally? Should I instead ask the point of contact for the required written statement of purpose and attempt to apply for the visa myself?(2) Should I be at all concerned about potential changes in the geopolitical situation between the U.S. and Russia between now and December? Although I tend to be pretty optimistic, my family seems concerned that I as an American academic would travel to Russia at a somewhat fractious time in our post-Cold War relationship.Thanks very much in advance for your advice.

Why did the British Conservative Party commit itself to Ulster Unionist resistance to home rule 1912-1914? "the formal name of the concervative party was/is the "conservative and unionist party" - originally referring to the union with Scotland but also with Ireland so their support was totally to be expected - they would have seen any threat to the union as a threat to the whole british empire"While this answer is perfectly correct, it is somewhat naive. Indeed the preservation of the Union and de facto the integrity of the British Empire was a major concern of the Conservative Party (particulalry Conservative Peers), it was by no means the only reason for the "Tories" to support Ulster resistance
What is the difference between the Tory party the labor party and the Conservative party in Britain? The "Tory Party" is a nickname for the Conservative Party, and dates back to before political parties, when conservative members of Parliament were known as the "Tories". The Labour Party is the left wing party, who stand for the working class and believe in more government spending on health, education, infrastructure and benefits, as well as regulation in the economy. The Conservative Party is the right wing party, who stand for the middle class and believe in less government intervention, a free economy, lower taxes and maintaining traditional institutions and values of the United Kingdom.
