Likening black people to cannibals and Scottish nationalists to Nazis – their views are concerning.
The new raft of Tory councillors elected this month are the most obnoxious bunch of politicians ever gathered together under one party banner in Scotland.
Social media posts and previous public statements have exposed sexism, racism and extreme right-wing
views at the heart of Ruth Davidson’s revival.
Some of the lowlights include Alastair Majury, 35, who was elected to Stirling Council.
He was censured over his rants on Twitter under the X-Files-themed alias “Mulder1981”.
Majury likened Scottish nationalists to Nazis, dismissed homelessness and food support charities, attacked benefit claimants and said the SNP were too busy talking about gay marriage.
Meanwhile, his fellow Stirling councillor Robert Davies has been reported to police after a series of racist tweets likening black people to cannibals.
Over in Perth & Kinross, councillor Ian James described the term “African American” as a “stupid, politically correct euphemism”.
He also hailed the days of “political characters” like Enoch Powell, who achieved notoriety with his Rivers of Blood speech.
James also called Nicola Sturgeon a “poison dwarf” and a “poisonous Oompah fr****n Loompah” in the vile Facebook rants. Other scandals engulfing Scottish Tories include:
●Moray councillor Donald Gatt, who said the poor “shouldn’t have kids”.
●North Ayrshire councillor Todd Ferguson questioned the relevance of the views of an SNP candidate because she was born in the Netherlands.
●South Lanarkshire councillor Colin McGavigan called carers “the great unwashed”.
●Inverclyde’s David Wilson asked gay councillors to out themselves while moaning about funding an LGBT group.
● Fife councillor Kathleen Leslie called the First Minister a “drooling hag”.
They really are a lovely bunch.
