Douglas Ross – 2020 Apology for Missing VJ Day Event

The apology issued by Douglas Ross, the leader of the Scottish Conservatives, on 16 August 2020.

I am a proud and passionate supporter of the Armed Forces and our veterans. I represent a constituency with a significant military presence and have worked with local and national charities supporting veterans throughout my time as an elected representative.

I made an error of judgment here and apologise to any veteran who was offended. I will be donating my match fee from the game to Help for Heroes, a charity that does so much across the country supporting our veterans every day of the year.
