Feral SNP, Nationalists have decided it appears to start a campaign of disrespect in the House of Commons; the traditions of the House of Commons are meaningless to them as they start clapping back in the chamber, toothless Celt tigers, go on Nicola, let them slash the seats on the government benches, might as well go full mental
The Scottish National Party are an embarrassment at Westminster, as well as the usual suspects of buffoonery such as Angus Robertson and Pete Wishart, the Nationalist camp has been joined by others who are equally untalented and dim.
Pete Wishart’s comment however provide some amusement value.
In the House of Commons, the convention in the chamber is not to clap, in exceptional circumstances, the House has seen spontaneous clapping take place. The fact the SNP clap themselves is a sign of insecurity, they appear however to know one thing.
No one likes them.
In the House of Commons, there has been an occasion when a speech has been so powerful, that a round of applause can be heard, recently this happened during the wonderful speech by Labour's shadow foreign secretary Hilary Benn. His speech was full of passion about why we cannot ignore the threat of Islamic State. The SNP opposed airstrikes, thus by default they supported the killers of innocent men, women and children.
Earlier this year, SNP MPs were rebuked by the Speaker John Bercow for clapping their colleagues' contributions in the chamber, he politely told them to stop adding, ‘they will get their speaking rights from this chair’. But as we all know the real problem is that the dross selected by the SNP doesn’t respect the parliament, doesn’t respect the traditions and doesn’t care about the rules.
That said; the rules should apply equally to everyone.
It seems that the SNP want a run in with the speaker John Bercow, if that is what they want they are heading in the right direction.
SNP MP said:
“It is ridiculous that in a grown up democracy we cannot behave in a professional way. When you attend political meetings ordinary people do not stand around saying ‘hear, hear’. If someone makes a good point you give them a round of applause.”
This isn’t a political meeting; this is the House of Commons.
The issue of applause is nonsense, it is the politics of the student union, where nothing much is done but very loudly, the SNP as I said know that no one likes them, so clapping is like a support group for the dummy who is making a point.
Dr Philippa Whitford, the party’s health spokesman and the MP for Central Ayrshire, has likened the Commons to sitting in a "kindergarten where people are making animal noises”.
Whitford made headlines for making bogus claims exposing herself as a liar.
The SNP will probably tread the path of stupidity and keep clapping, then the funny side will wear off as they get removed from the chamber, and some will walk out along with the offenders as a show of support.
But the parliament will go on; of course they will use the route of complaining as is their right but what it amounts to is people who are there to make the United Kingdom better but to pick up a pay packet.
After all, we should remember, no matter what the SNP does, it is irrelevant at Westminster, they aren’t changing the world, they aren’t changing the United Kingdom, and they aren’t changing Scotland.
Westminster is a way station for the SNP, a place they are trapped.
Maybe someone should give Nicola Sturgeon some advice, if you are going to keep pets, make sure they behave themselves when out of your sight.
