Penelope (Penny) Alison Veronica Hutton (nee Salvesen) Tory candidate for West Dunbartonshire
Her fabulously rich family are linked to some of the richest landowners in Scotland.
The old saying holds true “if she cut herself she would bleed blue blood.
Quite why she is the Tory candidate for West Dunbartonshire defeats me since the wider family could buy and sell West Dunbartonshire many times over and still consider the purchase to be achieved by spare cash.
It might be now that her children are adults she has a bit more time available and is a wee bit bored.
She was at some time or other a director of some of the family companies.
Her brother Jeremy’s obit provides further explanation: (http://www.scotsman.com/news/obituaries/obituary-jeremy-salvesen-entrepreneur-and-adventurer-1-3380489)

Penny Hutton – I Am a Scottish Conservative
Her self penned history is at odds with the gentility of her heritage:
“Born in the Borders I have lived in West Dunbartonshire for the last four years with my husband and two children.
Before that we lived in Argyll where we ran a marine and retail business.
I was also an advisor for the Prince’s Scottish Youth Business Trust helping young people to establish and run their own businesses.
I am now a volunteer for the NSPCC Schools Service giving assemblies and workshops in primary schools to help our young people understand abuse and how to get help.
Briefly, Her beliefs – Quotes from Roothie the Moothy Political Dogma “Don’t Frighten the Natives” Handbook
“I will endeavour to ensure that funds from the Glasgow City deal (which is majority Westminster financed) are invested properly, eg. The Exxon Mobile site and that Clydebank and West Dunbartonshire get their fair share.
I will also work to bring life back to our town centres and to keep health and social care services local.
I believe in a strong United Kingdom (the rest of the UK being Scotland’s largest export market) and the benefits including inward investment it gives all four of our home nations.
I will oppose the SNP’s plans for a second Scottish independence referendum, which the people of Scotland do not want, and stand up for a strong United Kingdom.
I will support the growth and development of H.M.N.B. Clyde and the employment opportunities this will bring to the constituency, both at the base itself and in the wider community.
I will work with our local MSPs and others to ensure a secure, long term and viable future for the Vale of Leven Hospital.”
