Douglas Ross reveals a plan to expel all of Sturgeon’s SNP MSPs one by one, proclaiming, “The Yellow Wall Will Fall!”
As he unveiled intentions to bring a new Bill to offer voters more authority to dismiss underperforming MSPs, DOUGLAS ROSS warned that “the SNP-yellow wall is collapsing.”
The Scottish Tory leader intends to introduce legislation that would allow residents to recall their representatives if they are not effectively representing their area. The legislation is known as “Mackay’s law” after SNP MSP Derek Mackay, who resigned as a minister after it was revealed that he had been messaging a 16-year-old kid.
Despite rarely appearing in the Holyrood parliament after resigning from the government, he continued to receive his MSP salary.
“No one could lose a six-figure sum while hiding at home in any other job, so why would we support it in the Scottish Parliament?” he stated
Mackay’s Law, according to the Scottish Tory leader, will “give people the authority to get rid of MSPs who don’t do their job.”
Mr Ross also said the SNP was failing to meet the demands of Scotland’s “working people” as he promised to depose Nicola Sturgeon.
“Let us never forget,” he reminded delegates, “that independence is a minority pursuit in Scotland, no matter how often or how loudly the SNP talk about it.”
“Working Scotland has far more important worries than the minority’s never-ending demands for a referendum rerun.”
Following the Conservatives’ highest-ever vote share in a Holyrood election in May, the Scottish Tory leader told delegates at the Conservative Party Conference in Manchester that the party’s priority should be on preventing a fresh independence referendum.
“While we can take a moment to rejoice the election today, we must equally prepare ourselves for the challenge ahead,” he said.
“It’s not enough to prevent an SNP majority; we need to put an end to nationalism for good.”
“It will take a party that understands, listens to, and represents working Scotland to meet this task.”
“We’re moving forward, and the next wall to fall won’t be red this time; it’ll be SNP yellow,” he continued.
“Nicola Sturgeon has become estranged from the working-class neighborhoods that have been ravaged by drug overdoses.
“And beset by additional flaws that her government is simply too preoccupied to address.”
In response to Mr Ross’s speech, SNP MSP Neil Gray accused him of acting on orders from London.
“Douglas Ross is frantically trying,” he said in “Brinkwire Summary News.”
