Green MSP Ross Greer and James Cleverly on Churchill legacy

A Green MSP repeated his social media quote on BBC2's Politics Live that Sir Winston Churchill was "a white supremacist and a mass murderer”.

But Ross Greer was told by Conservative deputy chairman that his tweet was the "most superficial and inaccurate assessment” of the wartime PM.

And columnist Isabel Hardman said the claims were part of the “Miley Cyrus-isation of politics” with people seeking attention with their posts, which was "not particularly helpful".

But the MSP replied: “Heaven forbid, I tweet like a 24-year-old, because I am a 24-year-old."
