Let’s clarify the facts here, because the Herald’s Caitlin Hutchison certainly doesn’t.
The Conservative Party is resisting Marcus Rashford’s call for free school meals in England, at Christmas.
The Scottish Conservatives, members of the same party, voted with their English colleagues, other than Ross who didn’t even turn up because he was ‘in Scotland.’
He didn’t seem to be ‘cheering on‘ Rashford then as the Herald happily lets him claim to be, here, now.
So, to be clear, they oppose Rashford’s campaign.
Yet, in Scotland, apparently inspired by his mum’s work as a dinner lady, Ross and his group will now press the SNP Government to go further than the position his party espouses for England.
This kind of creativity with the truth is central to the Ross Narrative. See earlier examples here:
So, think about it. Imagine the Labour Party in Scotland votes against free school dinners in Scotland then their Westminster MPs, sorry MP, tells the UK Government to provide them and to top them up with free sweets?
That’d be another entry in the Brass Neck Award Competition 2020.
There’s more competition than I thought.
