Tories Called to Retract Sinister Indy Blacklisting Demand

The SNP has called on Scottish Tory leader Douglas Ross to retract his demand for pro-independence Labour candidates to be de-selected – as his own party is swarmed with bigoted candidates in their own ranks.

Commenting, Karen Adam MSP said:

“This sinister demand is absolutely disgraceful and must be recalled by Douglas Ross immediately.

“Not only are the Scottish Tories completely out of touch with Scots, who elected a majority of pro-independence MSPs at the election last year, but they want to erase the idea that people can support independence at all.

“Meanwhile, Douglas Ross turns a blind eye to candidates making comments that are racist, anti-immigrant, misogynistic and bigoted things on social media.

“It says a lot about the Tory leader’s priorities that he’s determined to shut down anyone who has a different view on independence to him.

“A better Scotland is possible – one free from Tory governments that Scotland didn’t vote for.

“A vote for the SNP on 5th May is a vote for a positive, independent vision for a better Scotland.”
