The Only Person in Dunfermline Willing to Talk to a Tory another Tory. And a resonably high profile one at that.

Dr Carrie Ruxton has produced an In Touch leaflet which shows her talking to what the public will preceive to be a concerned citizen of Dunfermline and West Fife to show how in touch she thinks she is. However, being the sharp eyed West Lothian political campaigner that I am I immediately spotted it to be Lindsay Paterson. Miss Paterson was the Conservative's candidate in Livingston in the Scottish Parliament elections in 2003 and Gordon Lindhurst's agent in last September's by-election, she also stood in Coatbridge, Chryston & Bellshill in May 2005. Her job is Campaigns Coordinator for the Scottish Conservative Party, shame they couldn't find anyone more low profile to pose for that photograph. But then maybe Andrew Graves wasn't available.

On the same leaflet Carrie calls for the Liberal Democrats to change their stance on the £4 Forth Bridge toll. Does she therefore want Willie Rennie the Lib Dem candidate in Dunfermline and West Fife to cancel his petition against the tolls and fully support these instead? Any comments from Tories no matter how prominent they think they are will be welcome.
