A SCOTTISH MSP has been blasted after he branded Sir Winston Churchill a “white supremacist.”
Ross Greer, the youngest MSP in the Holyrood and a Green Party politician was heavily criticised for the tweet in which he said Winston Churchill was a “mass murderer” and a “white supremacist”.
Once again for the people in the back:
Churchill ? was ? a ? white ? supremacist ? mass ? murderer ? https://t.co/wlOhhnJEms

He went onto say Britain “deal with” its “murderous history”:
2,500 replies and counting. Most of those having a tantrum just don’t know history but there’s a strong current of ‘Three million Indians dying slow & hideous deaths was a price worth paying’.
To deal with its murdrous history, Britain needs to start by learning it. https://t.co/nYQPnUNNBN

Piers Morgan certainly wasn’t holding back. He branded Greer a “thick ginger turd”.
Lee Pollock, of the International Churchill Society, said:
“It seems to me this young man’s not as important as he would like, so he has found the biggest target he can in order to get the most attention with a radical point of view. It’s a cheap trick.”
A veteran of conflict in Afghanistan, Colonel Richard Kemp tweeted:
Saw this yesterday. He and I agreed he’d now just about be a kind of corporal in the Hitler Youth, no doubt strutting his way across yon glen, if it weren’t for Churchill. https://t.co/psM19qKYFe
