Back in May, new Stirling councillor Alastair Majury was found to have been posting anti-Catholic comments online, after which anti-sectarian charity Nil By Mouth offered to work with him to address his views. This offer was accepted publicly by the Scottish Conservatives but no concrete plans were made.
The councillor was then suspended, alongside fellow Stirling councillor Robert Davies, who published tweets that were racially offensive.
Earlier this week, the two councillors were readmitted despite not having taken up the offer of meeting with Nil By Mouth.
Yesterday, in a widely shared post, Scottish National Party MP Peter Grant accused the Scottish Conservatives of failing to take up the offer despite Ruth Davidson saying in a BBC interview that councillors would definitely be meeting with Nil By Mouth.
Was this true?
Apparently it wasn’t strictly true - by the time Ruth Davidson spoke to the BBC on Thursday, the Scottish Conservatives HAD in fact been in touch with Nil By Mouth to take up the offer of a meeting.
However they had not been in touch at the time of the councillors’ actual reinstatement, as Nil By Mouth director Dave Scott pointed out on Twitter.
The meeting between the councillors and Nil By Mouth is yet to happen, and it seems likely that all eyes will be on the councillors and their party to see what ensues.
