It would seem Humza Yousaf has excelled himself once again. Yesterday he tweeted: "Scot Tories criticse ScotGovt saying cameras being used as 'cash cow' - not realising money from speed camera fines goes to UK treasury...".
Humza Yousaf was very quickly put right by Fraser Whyte @FraserWhyte81: "Speeding fines are devolved by s67 of the Scotland Act 2016? Now go straight to the Scottish Consolidated Fund, to be spent by SootGov".
Fraser Whyte copied screen grabs of the relevant legislation.
We cannot see any retraction or acknowledgement from Humza Yousaf regarding Mr Whyte's tweet.
Showing how blinkered SNP politicians are, Councillor Mhairi Hunter retweeted Mr Yousaf's tweet commenting: "Tories aren't very good at facts". Again, we cannot see any retraction of this tweet.
Once again it would seem SNP politicians have no idea what has been devolved to them.
Is this another case of incompetence or wilful spreading of lies?
