I blogged about this yesterday morning Conservative candidate Ivor Tiefenbrun describes Scots as "so thick" and his subsequent resignation yesterday evening Conservative candidate Ivor Tiefenbrun resigns over insult to Scots.
Then this morning we woke up to hear that the Scottish Conservative candidate for Clydesdale, Colin McGavigan had tweeted:
"kids in care: why do the carers look like the great unwashed? They're supposed to be carers not warders."
These comments by Colin McGavigan were made in response to a BBC documentary broadcast on Tuesday night, focusing on children in care. You can read the full story in The Scotsman.
Mr McGavigan was yesterday forced to express his "utmost respect" for carers in a statement issued by his party.
However, the Scottish Tories are set to allow him to continue as the party's Clydesdale candidate at next year's election on the grounds that they believe he has no case to answer.
I think this case should highlight to all of us in the public eye, whether it be a candidate or support staff such as myself, our tweets are followed by journalists waiting for this catastrophic mistakes.
I disagree with the Conservatives though, how on earth can they say there is no case to answer? Yet again this shows one of their candidates as out of touch.
How on earth can the voters respect someone who can cast aspersions such as this in a public forum?
Sorry Annabel, I really think another one bites the dust!
