BBC Scotland reporter ridiculed after claiming Ruth Davidson won election
A BBC Scotland reporter has been ridiculed on social media after claiming the Scottish Conservatives won the general election in Scotland.
Brian Taylor, who is BBC Scotland’s political editor, was appearing on the flagship news programme Reporting Scotland when he was asked about Ruth Davidson’s general election campaign. The Scottish Conservative leader gained plaudits after steering her party to thirteen seats north of the border.
Responding, Taylor told programme host Jackie Bird: “Right now the Scottish Tory group at Westminster feel a bit like ‘Team Ruth’.
“Because they fought a different campaign in Scotland on different issues and they had a different outcome … clue … they won, rather than losing which happened to the party south of the border.”
