    So we don't have racially motivated attacks in Scotland then? You of course know we do, so who's legacy will that be then?

    The people most to blame are the idiots carrying out the attacks.

    Any Home Secretary who oversees this disgusting pile of crap has to take some blame for what happens to immigrants in that country for some time afterwards.

    I think you have on occasion made some decent points about the uncertainty surrounding a new currency in an independent Scotland and I think it is useful for folk to question any group that seems to have a support that follows blindly. But if you think there is any sort of SNP bad angle to this then you are very much mistaken.

    Speaking of racists in Aberdeen, here's Jordan Hopwood, the chair of Aberdeen Uni Tory students.

    A racist attack? Do we know who the attackers are?

    There has been a huge rise in racial and other hate related crimes across the UK, since Englands decision to take us out of the EU.

    No SNP bad angle, similar point to you that I don't think we can blame May for every racist attack across the UK. It's ridiculous to suggest such a thing, they happened before and they will happen after May.

    It is important to apportion most blame to the actual perpetrators. You and I know not to carry out racist attacks irrespective of what Theresa May says or does.

    Sadly though we have to accept that there are all sorts of folk who have the potential to carry out such attacks. Potential is fine as long as it stays potential. Reckless public dialogue like that favoured by Trump and Farage can whip up division, normalise anti-whoever (insert group of people of choice here) sentiment leading to an increase in violence.

    Theresa May has been a shambles of a Prime Minister. That pales into insignificance when you put it next to some of the dangerously dreadful stuff her department came out with when she was Home Secretary.

    She can't wash her hands of it altogether. You use certain words, you preside over stuff like "hostile environment" then you can take some credit if your objectives regarding immigration are met. You carry the can for any side-effects that also happen.

    Don't even try and pretend that Theresa May's rolling out of the red carpet for Trump wasn't an open endorsement for the absolute dregs of society to spread their bile.
