As a dentist, do you support all the shutting down of dental treatment due to this nonsense? Do you think Dental Surgeries are really a hotbed of Covid transmission?
Did you read Scotlands mammy's response? She said he was, as always, dignified in apologisingOh how I laughed.
The MP for Skye, Lochaber and Ross is accused of libelling Ollie Taylor by using Twitter to ask if he had a “valid reason” for taking pictures of the Northern Lights in Caithness at the weekend.
He told how Mr Blackford called him yesterday to try to defuse the row, adding: “He’d deliberately stoked the fire then tried to run away.
“He grovelled a bit, even more, so it seemed when I told him lawyers had contacted me.
“We had a small chat about the fact he has distant English ancestry, and I have a mix of Scottish, English and Irish family.”
In Mr Taylor’s letter of claim, his lawyer Charles Holland points out that his client lives in Halkirk, Caithness and is paying council tax.
It also accuses Mr Blackford of behaving in a manner that was “likely to cause serious harm” to Mr Taylor’s reputation by falsely suggesting he had “committed a criminal offence.”
The letter alleges Mr Blackford sought to humiliate and shame the photographer, adding: “My client appears to be the only recipient of a tweet of this nature from you.
“My client and no other person has been selected by you for a public dressing-down.
“This constitutes unlawful discrimination and harassment.
“You sought to bully my client in public, and you did so in a fashion that can fairly be described as menacing and sinister.
“Your tweet appears to have been designed to humiliate my client. It was discriminatory.”

I never knew Sutherland was part of Blackfords constituency. Mebbe the boundary changes expanded it.
I will declare that I had little (none) input to the arrangements as it all took place between a NI emergency tour (Motorman) and an exercise in Norway, the summer Ex at Bardufoss in N Norway as part of the AMF(L) infantry battalion.
I also have to state that, to the best of my knowledge and belief, that is the only time I visited and stopped in Blackburn!
Along with days of being able to leave doors unlocked or trusting tradespeople not to rifle through drawers.It's the same commercialised boll0cks being punted everywhere.
The days of family gatherings, listening to Andy Stewart, shortbread, first footing and lump of coal are long gone, except in the fevered imagination of the terminally nostalgic.
Blackford is confused because he's a bigot. He thought because the guy was English, he must live in England!Blackford is confused because the victim has taken photographs on SKye
“I also saw Ian Blackford apologise for doing something that he recognises he shouldn’t have done on Twitter. And I think that’s the right thing, when people get something wrong is to readily apologise for it. And i think that’s the grace and dignity that I associate with Ian Blackford every single day of the week.”Blackford is confused because he's a bigot. He thought because the guy was English, he must live in England!
He was trying to score cheap political points with the party faithful and indulged in a bit of English bashing. Ithas spectacularly backfired and I hope the courts take a dim view.
If he thinks there aren't any English living in Scotland he should visit his constituants. Skye is full of them.
