Mr Cole-Hamilton tweeted this out presumably in an effort to demoralise the SNP canvassers and support who are working so hard for a victory in what is a very strong Liberal Democrat seat left vacant because ex-leader Tavish Scott got a better job offer.
Chris Jones tweeted in reply:
What an awful smear. I’ve been driving the @YSINational around the island – their energy and enthusiasm has been a joy to work with. Hang your head in shame @agcolehamilton for talking down young political activists.
PS we were North of Brae yesterday…
For heaven’s sake Cole-Hamilton, you really are a beginner at this kind of thing, aren’t you?
If you’re going to tell a lie on social media, lesson number one, its probably best to get at least some of the facts right, enough to make your lie plausible. Otherwise, you just look like a dick! And guess what you look like?
Yep, You got it!
Good luck to Tom Wills on Thursday. It’s a HUGE ask, to take a seat in the northern islands, but you’re doing a hell of a job from all I read.
He is not a First Minister. He is not an MSP. He is not an MP.
What he does is his business.
Unlike previous First Ministers or indeed Deputy First Ministers, he isn’t likely at anytime soon to accept a seat in the House of Lords and claim his £300 a day plus expenses. And he’s a bit young and energetic to retire.
