Explaining his views on a key issue of the week Ross Thomson. appeared a trifle contradictory.
The Conservative candidate in the Aberdeen Donside by election appeared to contradict himself as he spoke about life sentences for criminals.
Speaking to STV’s political editor Bernard Ponsonby, explaining his views on a key issue of the week Ross Thomson. appeared a trifle contradictory.
On Thursday Scottish Conservative Leader Ruth Davidson demanded change from the First Minister stating that for some convicted criminals life should mean life.
Mr Thomson was selected as the Conservative standard bearer in the Donside by-election saying that he understood the concerns of local people more than any other candidate.
One concern for many voters is the introduction of the bedroom tax.
Mr Thomson claimed his own council do not know the impact that the bedroom tax is having on Aberdeen City Council tenants.
However, figures given to STV news by the council suggest that nearly 2000 city tenants stand to lose out from UK welfare reform.Your report: If you have information on this or any other story, please let us know. You can send information, pictures to email@example.com or call us on 01224 848918.
