Watch Matthew Taylor's full report, as protestors surrounded David Mundell's car in Dumfries.
The Conservative MP was attending the opening of a new foodbank in the town.
It was NOT a mistake to invite Scotland's only Conservative MP to the opening of a new foodbank, according to the Trussell Trust.
The charity's Scotland Network Manager says they invited local elected politicians from all the major political parties, and that David Mundell was "brave" to attend the event:
I was glad that he came to the foodbank today, I was glad that he made an effort to be here.
It was a brave move, and a bold move. He's had a lot of negative feedback about being at the launch of the Peebleshire foodbank, and I was happy to welcome him today.
I wasn't asking people to agree with his politics, I wasn't asking them to agree with his view on the Scotland Bill, or the Budget.
I was asking people to welcome him as a human being, and I think he came today to represent his constituents, many of whom are going to have to use this foodbank."
