Who and why?

‘Deanthetory’ is my collection of thoughts, essays, short post-it rambles. It expresses my views on Scots current affairs, coming from a gay working class Scottish Conservative & Unionist perspective.


Life as a University lecturer in China tends to keep me busy, but blogging is the vital outlet for the politically minded. Feel free to follow me on twitter, I’m on it far more than likely deemed healthy.

Politics has always been a passion of mine and I never cease to be shocked at the lack of Scots Tory supporting blogs. Our Scots bloggosphere is dominated by the ‘yessers’; and while that is no bad thing; I hope my own blog goes a small way to re-balancing the scales of online activism.

I make no great claims on insight or unique knowledge. But all of my thoughts are my own, and the passion sincere.
