So Scotland’s youngest MSP, Ross Greer, a whole 24 years old, has chosen to insult the great Winston Churchill, the man who saved us from capitulation to National Socialism and thus saved Western Europe from a long totalitarian night.
Looking up the obscure Greer on Wikipedia, I find that his life since leaving school has been focused on politics - first a few months studying - surprise, surprise - politics and psychology at Strathclyde, then a couple of years as an Indy campaigner and now two and a half years as an MSP.
What experience of adult life outside politics and in particular of working life does he bring to parliament? Not much it appears.
Has he developed the maturity to see the different sides of an issue and understand his opponents - essential skills for the making the compromises necessary in democratic politics? If his comments on Churchill are anything to go by, then no.
Winston Churchill’s record warts and all is well known and he should be judged in terms of the age he lived in and by what he achieved. Ross Greer is sadly typical of Scotland’s out of touch political class.
