Labour confirmed this morning that the writ for the Glasgow North East by election will be moved as soon as parliament returns but did no one bother to tell the Conservative candidate?
Ruth Davidson was one of the candidates selected to ask questions to an august panel of Tories at conference this morning, including shadow Scottish Secretary David Mundell.
Instead of blowing her own trumpet and issuing a rallying call for November 12th, (that’s the by-election date Ruth) she blew her moment in the limelight and asked an anodyne question about the relationship between the “squabbling” between the SNP in Edinburgh and Labour in London.
Worse, no one seemed to have told David Mundell either. So much for joined-up Conservative thinking.
