I always find stuff like this a bit depressing. The political discourse in Scotland isn’t much better than that in America IMHO. Complete intolerance of opposing views, smears and inevitable hounding of individuals who express an opinion.
Why is having an opinion on another referendum a blocker to being a president of an organisation tasked to protecting Scotland’s heritage anyway? It’s almost like someone trawled through his background looking for something/anything that they could start a campaign around.
