The Scottish Crofting Federation (SCF) have expressed bewilderment that the Convener of the Crofting Commission is still in place despite it being clear that he now stands alone.
“The Crofting Commission board meeting last week was certainly an eye-opener”, said Russell Smith, Vice-chair of the SCF. “It quickly became apparent that the Convener had lost the support of his board and it came as no surprise that he left the meeting with his tail between his legs. What is astounding though is that he still has not resigned. What does it take for him to get the message?”
