The “Rev Stuart Campbell”‘ author of the Wings over Scotland website took to any broadcasting outlet that would listen yesterday to say that the debate around Clare Lally, the Better Together activist villified by Yes supporters, was, basically, a big fuss about nothing.
He took to Twitter last night calling for evidence that Clare had been subject to online abuse.
I can help him. The following contains accusations that Clare uses her disabled daughter for political ends, that she’s a fool, liar and idiot. “Rev Stu” might not think they constitute abuse, but most reasonable people would disagree.
And where do these come from?
From the comments on the article that Rev Stu wrote himself. He told me last night that he deletes abusive stuff. But our definitions of what constitutes abuse clearly differ. Last month he referred to Alex Johnstone MSP as “sewer dwelling vermin” and an “a***hole”. That might be ok to him but it surely isn’t for most people.
