In the 1979 General Election, the Conservatives in Scotland took 31 per cent of the vote and won 22 of the 71 seats (the SNP went from their previous 11 to 2 seats). Margaret Thatcher became Prime-Minister for the first time.
In the 1983 general election, when Margaret Thatcher won her seocond term, the Scottish Tories won 21 seats.
In the 1987 election, the party won ten seats in Scotland.
22nd of November 1990, Margaret Thatcher resigned as Prime-Minister, to be replaced by John Major.
In the 1992, election the Conservatives won 11 seats in Scotland
In the 1997 Labour landslide, it lost all its Scottish MPs.
Remember in the first post-Thatcher election they won 11 seats; they now have recovered and hold a grand total of one seat.
A full 19 years after her resignation is it not a bit disingenuous and cowardly then to still be blaming the Iron Lady for the party’s continuing pitiful performance ?
