The Reason Why There So Few Elected Tories in Scotland



It's confirmed! If you think you're sexy then the Conservative party isn't for you. Now I know the real reason why there are so few tory politicians voted into office in Scotland.

The reason: A tory councillor Geoff Courtenay, 64, has been told he will not be re-selected for next year's elections after posting a "How Sexy Am I' quiz on Facebook. Councillor (shortly to be Mr) Courtenay, who represents the Brunel ward in Exbridge, was informed that his postings constituted 'inappropriate material'.

Posting on Facebook, councillor Courtenay filled out a 'How Sexy Am I' quiz, which told him he was '93 per cent sexy'. Posting below it Courtenay wrote: "Why are they saying 93%? I demand a recount, I want 100%."

Councillor Courtenay is known among his counterparts for his sense of humour, but the top brass in the cabinet didn't find it amusing.

There's the proof that tory candidates why so few Scots vote tory. In order to be selected by their party, they must be sexless and have had a humour bypass. Obviously Scots don't feel such attributes have any appeal.

SR,

Not a lover of the Tories, but sounds to me like (a) sour grapes and (b) a touch of pc!

Jeez, some people need to get a sense of humour transplant bloody quick.

I can see why the Tories might just struggle a tad north of the border, they take themselves way too seriously.

Babbyface Dave, Big Bad Boris and Gorgeous George Osborne are surely as much sex as any political party needs.

Ach, I thought you were going to say it's because they were hunted down for their credit cards...there's a new Hootsmon if ye want it hen.

Sad though isn't it WfW that the tories don't know what is harmless fun.

Naldo, Tom doesn't think that's amusing. Or perhaps he doesn't think my post is amusing. :)

Thank you Conan, I'll catch it in a minute. I bet it's a cracker again.

I think it was amusing. But Americans are easily amused. ;)

I'd say some Americans are easily amused Jeanne, not all. :)

That's a dreadful tragedy you've had over there in the last 24 hours.
