Writer and TV presenter Neil Oliver is expected to be appointed at the National Trust for Scotland's annual general meeting in Dundee.
Why are the NATS so upset? In 2016 Neil Oliver was quoted as saying "the prospect of a second independence referendum is a cancerous presence". Mr Oliver has also said that he thinks independence is a “dead dog”.
He also described the independence referendum as a “hate fest” and castigated Nicola Sturgeon for leaving the door open on a future vote.
Mr Oliver received death threats from Nationalist supporters and was told that he should be burnt alive.
Rabid NATS immediately took to Twitter to vent their anger at the new appointment.
The resident SNP idiot Angus B MacNeil piped up with his usual drivel supporting Peter A Bell: "Is National Trust not a bit of er nationalism :)) "

Poisonous NAT Mhairi Hunter was quick to comment: "People should look at the plus side of Neil Oliver getting a top job with the National Trust - he will have to shut up about politics."

Nationalist supporter and agitator Peter A Bell had a rant too: "I feel like @N_T_S just spat in my face. I want nothing to do with Neil Oliver. So I want nothing to do with National Trust for Scotland."
Peter A Bell has said: "Perhaps more than any other public figure, Neil Oliver epitomises 'The Cringe'. He is, quite explicitly, a British Nationalist fanatic who adheres absolutely to the dogma of 'The Union At Any Cost'. He has vilified, denigrated and abused around half of Scotland while making clear his contempt, not just for Scotland, but for democracy."
User AllyG tweeted: "Already cancelled membership over that Tory prick @AJABurnett but would do it all over again today. Neil Oliver?? Disgusting."
Ed Dubhghaill @eddoyle1966 could only label Mr Oliver a "bitter unionist twat".
@N_T_S Neil Oliver !!?? What a disgraceful ill-judged appointment. He is a bitter unionist twat. Who thought this was a good idea ?— Ed Dubhghaill (@eddoyle1966) September 30, 2017
