Alasdair MacPherson, councillor for Bannockburn, is under the spotlight today for his insensitive messages.
In the first message he actively supports the confrontation of the "toxic Tory candidate" and welcomes him being driven away, unable to canvas the area.
Alasdair MacPherson said: "I hear that the toxic Tory candidate was canvassing in Cowie tonight - only to be confronted by several local residents who reminded him in no uncertain terms of the damage Thatcher and his poisonous party had inflicted on our mining villages.
"I understand he and his troop left shame faced.
Well done #toryfreecowie."
He then went on to boast on how the "Toxic Tories" have been kept out of power by a coalition.
He said: "I am pleased to report that as from this evening Stirling Council is run by an SNP/Labour coalition which means that the toxic Tories are frozen out of power in Stirling. Let's keep them there!!"
Kirsty Blackman: “I don’t think most folk in their daily lives give two hoots about whether Scotland is a member of the union. The constitutional issues are not the biggest concern for an awful lot of people and, in fact, I very rarely talk about Scottish independence in the chamber, because I talk about things that matter to the people of Aberdeen."
It is being reported that Serena Cowdy, the woman allegedly involved in a love triangle with Stewart Hosie and SNP MP Angus MacNeil, is to marry Hosie after a Christmas proposal.
Serena Cowdy, 36, reportedly had affairs with MacNeil and Hosie - which led to both mens marriages coming to an end. Stewart Hosie was married to Shona Robison.
Civic & Joyous Nationalism at its very best!

EU Withdrawal: Irritable Bill SyndromeBy: Kevin Hague / chokka blog The EU Withdrawal Bill is currently being eased through the bowels of Westminster, digested by the Houses of Commons and Lords, inched forward by the peristalsis of readings, committees and amendments. The question of where repatriated powers should lie and how this impacts the devolution settlements is clearly going to be a cause of irritation as the Bill forms. Nobody expects this to be a smooth passage.
The Little University on the PrairieBy: Lily of St. Leonards Apparently there is a plan in Scotland to pay students £8000 per year to study. Scottish students already have their fees paid by the taxpayer. The idea now is that they should be paid the equivalent of the "living wage" to study.
