I’m losing track of the ‘characters’ appointed to roles in the Scottish Tory Party. I updated you a few days ago on their latest embarrassments:
Now, it seems, according to the Daily Wrecker:
‘Tory MSP’s aide is convicted boat thief and drink-driver… and party bosses knew when they hired him’
MSP Maurice Corry has appointed, at public expense, ‘convicted boat thief and drink-driver’ John McMurtrie as his Parliamentary Assistant and it’s suggested his criminal record was known at the time. It seems he’d crashed his car into a wall while over the limit and that he’d stolen £12 000 from customers of his former business, selling boats.
I suppose you could say that’s maybe less problematic than bigotry, racism, homophobia and child-abuse; crimes committed by other Tories across the UK, so it should be quite an easy one for Ruth to decide on? Yes, reinstate him, people change.
