From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Oblivious Scots Tories choose ‘double cross‘ for new logo

Sunday 25 November 2012

Incredulous Scots couldn’t believe their eyes today when the Scottish Conservatives unveiled their new “double cross” logo.

It replaces the tree adopted in 2006 when the party was trying to convince voters that it would pursue green policies.

The Westminster Tory government has largely shirked those commitments.

SNP MSP Kenneth Gibson said: “There’s something strangely appropriate in the Tories choosing a ‘double cross’ to represent whatever it is they stand for, but I’m not sure it’s what they were aiming for.”

He said that it was understandable the Scots Tories want to distance themselves from Westminster but “a leopard can’t change its spots.”

British government failing in ambition to be ‘greenest ever’: here.

    • The all-British Conservative web site still has the tree logos. It seems that the Scottish Conservatives wanted to break away very fast from the Westminster Tories’ image of broken ecological promises, and then put themselves out of the fire and into the frying pan.
