“The news hits you like a freight train…

…You are depressed for a while because you are grieving for the difference between your hopes and the reality. But then you get over that because he’s wonderful,” David Cameron is quoted as saying when hearing the news of his first son Ivan’s disability of cerebral palsy and severe epilepsy. His forbear the 1st Marquess of Montrose was hanged in Edinburgh on the 21st of May, 1650. He was both a true Scottish patriot and loyal to Charles the Second. My own dear Ifan suffered from epilepsy as a child so we both know only too well what a shadow that can cast over a life. A father with such love and compassion as well as such a fine pedigree, devoted to freedom, is in my view, the better choice of Scots blood on offer at the present time to govern this country and heal the wounds of Thatcherism and Blairism. Question: How do you become a compassionate Conservative? Answer: Start by being a good dad. Hwyl fawr, David!
