"THE internal backlash against the Scottish Conservative leadership and the party's MSPs gathered pace yesterday when a party grandee and former deputy chairman added her voice to the calls for change.
Mars Goodman, who was twice elected unopposed as deputy chairman of the Scottish Conservative Party, spoke out in support of the activists who have started moves to deselect the current MSPs and replace them with a new, more dynamic and enthusiastic group.
Mrs Goodman described the way the party was being run at the moment as "sheer lunacy" and said that as a result there were many good candidates who were not being given a chance to become MSPs.
She was responding to revelations in The Scotsman yesterday that senior activists in Mid Scotland and Fife have started moves which could lead to the deselection of current MSPs."
Just goes to show that not only the SSP has a deathwish.
