Buffer Zone Group accuses Kate Forbes of lying about support

During the husting of Channel 4’s SNP leadership contest, the minister said she had responded to a letter from Back Off Scotland about buffer zones after rival Humza Yousaf claimed he was not doing so.

However, the group took to Twitter to say that was simply not true.

“Kate Forbes just lied on national television in response to Humza Yousaf. She didn’t reply to our letter,” they tweeted.

Speaking to journalists after the debate, Ms Forbes said she approved a response earlier in the week. “I apologize. I signed it two days ago. I thought it was gone,” she said.

Michelle Thomson, her campaign manager, said she was to blame for the error.

“I can confirm Kate signed the reply and it was my fault it wasn’t sent until this evening. She spoke in good faith, as she always does.”
