He’s only been in the job two months, but already Tory MP Douglas Ross is putting his foot in it like many of his peers: when asked by the Daily Telegraph what he would do if he were PM for one day without repercussions, Ross replied, “Tougher enforcement against Gypsies and Travellers”.
Ross, who unseated SNP deputy leader Angus Robertson at the 2017 General Election, was accused by the Green MSP John Finnie of attacking “an already beleaguered minority, our gypsy travellers.”
“Homelessness, Brexit and Terrorism, Mr Douglas Ross could have chosen any of these issues to deal with. Instead he chose to go with “Tougher enforcement against Gypsies and Travellers” the UK’s largest indigenous ethnic group, some of whom will be his constituents.”
@RichardLochhead do you not think this is a local issue of concern for many of our constituents?
