Tory councillor facing allegations of child sexual offences – watch the reporting

From the Courier today:

Mick Green has been arrested and charged with two separate incidents against children. Police said the allegations date back to 2006 and 2011. He will appear in court at a later date. The 70-year-old was elected as a Conservative councillor in 2017 and represents the Glenrothes North, Leslie and Markinch ward on Fife Council. Following his arrest, he was suspended by the Conservative party and will remain suspended until the outcome of the court case. A police spokesperson said: “A 70-year-old man has been arrested and charged with two separate incidents of non-recent sexual offences against children that took place in 2006 and 2011 in the Glenrothes and Leslie areas.

So no mention of the party in the headline. Note the language ‘he was elected as a Conservative councillor in 2017‘ so can’t be called a Tory any more?

He has been ‘arrested and charged‘ by the police so why not use that in headline?

BBC Scotland, no interest. BBC Scotland Edinburgh, Fife & East:

Nothing. This man’s long Lib Dem membership was also buried:

Remind me which party for this man?

But for SNP politicians:

Note another wee Tory offender not labelled at the bottom?

Even on non-sexual allegations, why was this woman always SNP?

  1. BBC Exclusive :

    A man who was the neighbour of a woman who was considering joining the SNP has been fined for illegal parking .

    Anus Sarwar condemned this callous and inappropriate behaviour and called on immediate action from Nicola Sturgeon and stated that he had been calling on the SNP to ”do something about anything ” for his whole time in Holyrood .

    Willie Rennie was adamant that such behaviour will increase Mental Health waiting times and stated that FOI requests have indicated that the number of similar incidents have ”probably ” risen since the SNP came to power . He explained that he was dressed as a giant amoeba for a photo shoot to publicise his party’s new manifesto targeting the brain-dead !

    DRoss could not be contacted as he was attending an anti-Traveller demonstration.
