Siobhan Tolland: Why it's more than bluster when the Tories spin that they're 'winning' in Scotland
CommonSpace columnist Siobhan Tolland suspects the Tories have a much more long-term strategy than opponents realise
I HAVE been thinking about this high pitched, salivating media hype about how the Tories won the Scottish local council elections.
I had friends contacting me all worried that the Tories were on the rise again. The Wee Ginger Dug tells us that the hype was so bad that a BBC guest thought the Tories had taken Glasgow - a perception that wasn’t all that unusual. If you didn’t live in Scotland you really would think the Tories had won.
