In the Herald today:
POLICE have received “a number of complaints” following a tweet from an SNP councillor which said “we hate the United Kingdom” in the aftermath of the Eurovision results. Rhiannon Spear, who represents the Greater Pollok ward in Glasgow and is the SNP’s national women’s convenor, has been accused of using “abhorrent language” after she wrote: “It’s ok Europe we hate the United Kingdom too. Love, Scotland.”
Really? Get a life! ‘A number’ means Annie Wells and two of her pals. ‘Assessing’ means they are just about to toss them in the bin.
From an admittedly small sample (91) though more than 10 times bigger than a typical Reporting Scotland sample of 2 angry pub owners or hairdressers, Spear has support:
Only 1 in 4 thought Spear’s comment was abhorrent. Only 1 in 4 Scots vote Tory. More than 1 in 4 Tories are abhorrent?
