SNP MSP John Mason has hit the headlines again after he admitted attending an anti-abortion protest outside a clinic in Glasgow.

The gaffe-prone politician has in the past been criticised by members of his own party for his views on a number of issues.

From ignoring coronavirus warnings on face-to-face meetings, to referring to IRA killers as “freedom fighters”, the MSP for Shettleston is not afraid of offering his opinion on controversial issues.

This week it was revealed he claimed abortion services are seldom “essential” or “vital” and insisted some women are coerced into having a termination.
