    Here is the Scottish Tory Manifesto.
    I don't think the EU is mentioned.
    The Scottish Conservatives got a huge number of new seats in Scotland on the back of this manifesto.


    Where is the moral justification for lying to the electorate?

    Then take the UK wide Conservative manifesto. There is no pledge to take the UK out of the EU , there is only a pledge to hold a referendum.

    Most honourable people would suggest that, before the referendum result can be enacted by any specific party, that party must have a manifesto pledge . Obviously millions of people in London, and Manchester and now Scotland voted Conservative thinking that there is no pledge to take the UK out of the EU and thus its quite safe to vote Conservative for other reasons.

    Thus, in effect, millions of Conservatives would have been disfranchised - they would have voted for something that they really really really strongly disagree with.

    The fact that May is so far ahead rightly suggests that the Tories are not Ukip, we vote on a wide range of issues of which Europe is just one and that is an enormous strength.

    I expected them to act on any referendum result (even if i expected a Remain win at the time) so i can't say i'm too concerned.
