TWAFA Comment: This sad and sorry tale is part of a wider pattern, concerning those involved in the far-right or otherwise prepared to take part in racist activities. Like so many involved in such activities, Scotter has shown himself to be a deeply unpleasant individual on numerous occasions, with little respect for the law or indeed other people.

It is litlle wonder that Scotter is currently serving a custodial sentence. It is also little wonder that so many in our region want nothing to do with the kind of views and actiosn Scotter has been involved in.
