This brought forth an unprovoked torrent of postings, which ended with me being described as a Traitor and The Enemy Within.
I think this level of insult lies somewhere between "Gauleiter" and "Talking down Scotland" in the big SNP book of cyber blogging.
I don't subscribe to the view that the Councillor may have had a libation or two too many at the time, but he then removed every comment about the posting, and tried to blame an (innocent) third party who had also commented for providing me with the information; when in fact the postings were brought to my attention by an appalled pillar of the community.
However, let's look at the subsequent exchanges on Facebook:
(I've deleted the Councillor's name for the moment, along with that of the person he is trying to blame)
The last comment was intriguing, as I read that as a very clear acknowledgement of tone and tenor of the comments, as well as a clear attempt to threaten me to keep quiet. An all to prevalent and recently adopted SNP tactic in the islands.
My subsequent email invited the Councillor to make the comments public as I have nothing to hide, but so far there has been no response.
Onwards to the Standards Commission and the regulatory body, who I am sure will look down on racism and threats, and attempts to besmirch the reputation of a professional.
No doubt the constituents will be very interested to know that their Councillor - who has now moved far out of the Ward he represents - will be interested in the anti-English views and threatening behaviour of this gentleman.
Attempts to name the Councillor will be disallowed. At least for a few days to give him the chance to reconsider his stance.
