Ochil & South Perthshire

Luke Graham-Dangle 20:

A political carpetbagger using the constituency as a stepping stone to glory with the Tory party at Westminster. People of Ochil and South Perthshire you were conned.

This is a guddle of a constituency, grouping traditional Labour voters in the old mining communities, farmers in Crieff and the rich people of Auchterarder. It throws up weird election results from time to time.

Graham, the Tory candidate, from Swindon had contested the seat at the 2015 General Election and although he had been swept aside together with the Labour and Lib/Dem  in the SNP Tsunami he retained almost the same voter base as in the 2010 election.

The SNP candidate Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh won the seat taking around 19% votes from Labour and the Lib/Dems.

The lesson for the SNP was evident. The Tory vote in the Northern part of the constituency was solid and the South was volatile with three parties in the mix.

 

Scottish Brexit Legislation

 

 

 

The EU Referendum – Britain Stronger In Europe Campaign

Graham, an avid supporter of Britain’s membership of the EU took on the duties of finance director of, Britain Stronger In Europe, dubbed “Project Fear” by sections of the media.

The group, launched in London on 12 October 2015 unsuccessfully campaigned in favour of the United Kingdom continuing membership of the European Union in the 2016 British referendum.

Of importance to Graham, Ochil & South Perthshire voted to remain in the EU recording a strong 60% in favour of it.

 

 

 

 

03 May 2017: The 2017 General Election

Graham, the Tory carpetbagger from Swindon, selected as the Tory candidate, notified the Electoral Commission his place of residence was Stables Cottage, near Crieff. But his permanent home was in still in Swindon.

His candidacy was sponsored by Alistair Mair the multi-millionaire Tory whose son Hamish was the Chairman of the Tory party in Scotland.

Stables Cottage is owned by Mair who rents it to Tory MSP Elizabeth Smith, MSP, Shadow Cabinet Secretary for Education. Graham was a lodger.

The Tory Party was on a high after a good showing in the Scottish local elections earlier that year.

The fight for the hearts and minds of voters in South Perthshire was between the SNP and the Tory’s, the other parties were reduced to fringe voting status.

Tactical voting and a media-driven dirty tricks campaign dictated the Unionists and the medias and the ploy worked. Graham gathered the swithering voters to the Tories.

The constituency MP, Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh, with a 9000 majority, was thought to be a shoo-in but a relentless dirty tricks campaign was perpetrated against her by the media and the Unionist’s soon after the electioneering had begun.

The SNP vote was solid but the Labour and Lib/Dem votes transferred to the Tories and Graham was elected to represent the constituency.

 

 

 

 

Graham’s performance as an MP has been vintage Tory. What he committed himself to with the voters was set aside in favour of support of the Westminster government.

In line with the other Scottish MP’s he voted:

Against an energy price cap.
Against a properly resourced industrial strategy.
Against maintaining the benefits of the European Single Market and Customs Union.
Against maintaining the existing rights of EU nationals living in the UK and EU nationals living in the EU.
Against increased funding of public services.
Against scrapping university tuition fees.
Against restoring Education Maintenance Allowance, maintenance grants and nurses’ bursaries.
Against ending the public sector pay cap.
Against increasing the minimum wage.

Comment: Brutal measures from a government determined to continue with the imposition of harsh austerity measures, rewarding the rich minority of society whilst destroying the will to live amongst the many.

 

 

 

 

Graham at Westminster Votes to remove all aspects of EU Integration from Statute

A self-declared, “die-hard” europhile and ex-Finance Director of  “Britain Stronger In Europe” became a hardline Brexiteer against the express wishes of his constituents who voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. His voting record exposes him and his lying rhetoric: He’ll say anything to get a vote.

Talk about a somersault: Ochil and South Perthshire voters were conned.

My Home

Swindon is never too far away in his mind and he often reminisces about his time in the town. Reflecting on his short time in Scotland he said:

  “I’m proud of Swindon. It is where I come from and I think people see that. I have always felt very strongly about being British and my parents still live in Swindon so when I go to see them, I feel like I’m going home.”

 

 

 

 

Graham promoted to the Tory Government Head Office in Downing Street 

Brown nosing has its rewards. His unqualified support of the Tory government at Westminster was recognized through his early promotion to the Cabinet Office as a parliamentary private secretary, (PPS).

His remit includes responsibility for the constitution, civil service and he was appointed the leader of communication and relations between Westminster and Holyrood.

The latter role requires him to focus on Brexit, as it evolves, concentrating on constitutional issues.

18 Mar 2018:  Graham to lead Young Conservatives Campaign to Win Over Millennial Voters

The campaign follows yet another relaunch of the much-maligned Young Conservatives following nearly three years in mothballs after bullying scandals and other inappropriate behaviours.

Led by Graham, it is being developed in conjunction with Tory activists of the recently formed, well funded “rust-belt Tory” group which operates in Scotland and the north of England and is aimed at appealing to a generation of young voters who the Tories claim is not as left-wing as portrayed.

Tory Party chairman Brandon Lewis said the youth arm of the party would seek to engage with “thousands of young people who keep being told they must be Corbynistas, but aren’t.”

Leading the Young Conservatives and discharging the duties  of PPS in the Prime Minister’s cabinet office begs the question:

“Where does he find the time for constituency matters?”

The constituents of Ochil and South Perthshire are being short-changed yet again by a carpet bagger from England.
