The SNP has branded Douglas Ross’s opposition to the workplace parking levy as ‘blatant hypocrisy’ after his backing, as a Moray councillor, for such a plan has come to light.
As reported in the Daily Record, Ross proposed charging over 200 local authority workers for parking in the council’s car parking.
SNP MSP Paul McLennan has said that this is just the latest example of the Scottish Tory Leader undermining himself because he has ‘nothing positive to offer the people of Scotland.’
Commenting SNP MSP Paul McLennan said:
“This isn’t the first time that Douglas Ross has been completely undermined by Douglas Ross – you only have to look at his flip-flopping on whether law-breaking Boris Johnson is fit to be PM to realise that the Tories are interested in nothing more than opposition for opposition’s sake.
“This blatant hypocrisy simply shines a light on the reality that the Tory party has nothing positive to offer the people of Scotland.
“By contrast, the SNP is offering people across Scotland a positive plan for the future – tackling the Tory cost of living crisis at the same time as maintaining our work towards net zero, and the workplace parking levy is one of the tools that councils can choose to use to raise vital funds and encourage more people to take the train, bus, walk or cycle to work.”
