Angus Tories make Twitter troll council group leader


Scottish Liberal Democrats have today said that "The rot in the Conservative party runs from top to bottom" after the Scottish Conservative group on Angus council elected as its group leader a councillor previously exposed as running an abusive anonymous Twitter account.

After the Courier exposed Cllr Derek Wann as running the troll account, a Scottish Conservative spokesman confirmed the party “immediately launched an investigation into this matter after new information came to light”.
 
Convenor of Angus & Mearns Liberal Democrats Ben Lawrie said:
 
"Scotland has had enough bitterness and division. Politicians should be striving to raise the standard of public debate, not plumbing the depths like Councillor Wann.
 
"If this is the best that the Scottish Conservatives can do then they are clearly in more trouble than even we suspected.
 
"It's clear that the rot in the Conservative party runs from top to bottom. Angus needs politicians who are focused on local services and tackling the cost of living crisis, not slagging off political rivals and neighbouring towns online."
