Inverness councillor makes anti-Jewish comments in council meeting

An independent Inverness councillor has been called on to resign after making inappropriate comments against Jews in a debate about a Tesco store closing in Holm.

During the council meeting Cllr Norrie Donald said:
I’ve heard Tesco is owned by a Jewish family who live in the lap of luxury in Switzerland.

I’m not concerned about Tesco closing down in the slightest. I’d be quite happy to see stores close down all over the country.
When he was challenged by the Inverness Courier he made further inappropriate comments about Jews and said that they were off the record because he didn't want to come across as anti-Jewish.
