“It is deeply disappointing the Cllr Dempster made these Islamaphobic comments towards the Transport Minister.
“He has admitted them and apologised for them, and the best thing would be for him to resign.
“To suggest diversity training will do when someone in his position should clearly already know better is completely unacceptable.”

So it’s now on record. @UKLabour will stay silent as the Tories slash Universal Credit back down by £20 per week.
The real opposition at Westminster - @theSNP - will keep arguing to extend the £20 a week uplift to legacy benefits and #KeepTheLifeline https://twitter.com/bbcpolitics/status/1365959412171628544
It beggars belief that the Labour Party is failing to oppose Tory cuts to Universal Credit.
The SNP strongly opposes a return to Tory austerity. The £20 uplift must be permanent and extended to legacy benefits, to boost incomes and tackle the Tory poverty crisis #KeepTheLifeline
