ARGYLL and Bute Councillor Alastair Redman is too sleazy for the Conservative and Unionist party, itself embroiled in its latest sleazy behaviour at Westminster. He has been kicked out of the Tory party for sleazy behaviour for using aliases in a campaign, faking constituents views’ to his own ends.

For years Mr Redman – a former Westminster Tory candidate (but that didn’t go well) – told us the Tory party and Westminster was the answer to all our prayers but now he’s ironically going to stand as an “independent” candidate in next year’s council elections.

The same man who campaigned against Scottish independence was telling us the Union was safe in his and the Tories’ hands.

Since it’s now good enough for Mr Redman to go it alone and be independent then it’s good enough for the nation of Scotland to go it alone and be independent and disregard his opinions. What’s good for the goose is good for the gander, as the saying goes.
