Malcolm Scott is a conservative. Not a run-of -the-mill tory but a top-of-the-range one. They're few and far between these days in Scotland, at least publicly.
He is the treasurer of the Scottish tories and I doubt if they could find someone more equipped that Mr Scott to do that job.
Mr Scott is no ordinary citizen. He owns several companies and has donated more than £1.6m to the tories. David Cameron has the use of Mr Scott's private jet should he require it.
The media-shy tory has given an interview to the Herald in which he says he understands why many people hate the legacy of Margaret Thatcher, but he believes the tories have changed.
They may have changed but they're still irrelevant in Scotland. Unfortunately this year the Scottish branch of the conservatives have contributed little to the political scene here although the same can be said for labour and the libdems.
I think it's time Annabel Goldie stepped aside but that won't happen until after the general election. Meanwhile, with people like Mr Scott willing to add to their coffers, they won't be struggling for funds will they?
