PROFESSOR ADAM TOMKINS DISPLAYS HIS CLASSY SENSE OF HUMOUR

You know, it would be a wonder if sometimes we didn’t ALL say things on social media, particularly¬†Twitter, that, upon reflection, would have been better left unsaid.

Of course, for many of us it doesn’t matter a fig. No one much reads our tweets, and those who do are probably friends…so it’s a bit like down the pub when we say something silly among our mates.

But when you’re a politician (or other celebrated personality), and your tweets are read by thousands, and they reflect the attitude of your party, it might be a good idea to consider very carefully before you put finger to keyboard.

It’s a small thing maybe, but using a picture of a natural disaster that killed 26 people and brought about devastation and misery just to make a silly, petty point against Humza and the SNP,¬†is beneath even what you’d expect from anyone, let alone a supposedly educated man.

Stay classy, Prof.
