Forsyth to the Rescue of the Tories

Michael Bruce Forsyth, the last Tory Governor General of Scotland, has called for a structural rethink of the Scottish Conservatives after saying the party had become "marginal".
Forsyth, a devoted follower of Thatcher, lost his seat in the 1997 election. He then received an obligatory knighthood (in lieu of Dole money) and in 1999 was elevated to the House of Lords and given a life peerage as Baron Forsyth of Drumlean.
It’s nice to see though, that he’s showing such concern about the party in Scotland. We should all be interested in the solutions he has to offer the few. Especially since he was so much part of the problem in the first place. But, now that he’s in the Lords, he probably can’t remember.

Still – gives the rest of us a laugh.
