SNP's grey bashing is a shameful new trend

NEIL Hay sounds a lovely sort of chap, doesn't he? The SNP candidate for Edinburgh South has been exposed as an online troll who in 2012 sent a sheaf of offensive tweets including one comparing Unionist Scots to Nazi collaborators. Just last month, he remarked that there were a 'disproportionate number of non Scots accents' during a TV debate in Edinburgh. Is there some sort of quota? What qualifies as a Scots accent? Will he be issuing guidelines, and will those with too many glottal stops and the occasional flat 'e' be rejected? Of most concern, however, are Mr Hay's comments about the elderly, in which he mocked older voters who 'barely know their own name'. As I say, a lovely sounding sort of chap. Why Nicola Sturgeon has refused to sack him is beyond me.
