It Doesn't Do It For Me
The Scottish Tories have launched a new logo (image above).
Ruth Davidson, the party leader, said it was: "bold, fresh and easy to recognise. Obviously inspired by the St Andrew's Cross, it is distinctly Scottish but with colours which clearly reflect our pride in the United Kingdom".
My attention was drawn to this by a tory-voting friend who is outraged. Her rant included the following remarks:
"What's Scottish about it?"
"If they needed something to reflect their pride in the UK what's wrong with the Union flag?"
"I'll not be giving any more money to the cause. Nobody squanders my money on such nonsense."
Seems as if the Scottish tories may have lost another supporter and certainly I agree with her query about its Scottishness. A wee of daub of Pantone 300 (the azure in the Saltire) conveys the Tories lack of interest in Scotland.
Naw, it doesn't do it or me - nor my friend, but the one below does.
