It seems there is a new campaign in Scotland, the campaign is to remove elected sleazy SNP MSP Mark McDonald from Holyrood, as part of the you’re not welcome here initiative, there is a possibility that McDonald will be getting a new office. Sadly for him, it appears that he is to be shunted into one of Holyrood’s worst. Yesterday, when I was discussing the ‘problem’, I mentioned an open plan office in the main foyer as a possible solution.
It seems my idea of an open plan in the main foyer or a suitable broom cupboard has been updated to a notoriously noisy office on the ground floor of the parliament, from this office McDonald can watch the world go by. One thing that he might do if he is given this office is buy a pair of headphones; it appears that Labour MSP Daniel Johnson found the nose so bad he asked to be moved.
Although unpopular Nicola Sturgeon has led the charge to say McDonald is welcome, I suppose everyone is waiting for Scottish Green MSP Patrick Harvie to speak out with condemnation.
Where is Scottish Green MSP Patrick Harvie?
In order to try and put as much clear water between Mark McDonald and Nicola Sturgeon, the SNP has made it clear to parliament bosses that they do not want Mr McDonald to return to his office on the fourth floor. McDonald would be the sandwich between MSPs Kate Forbes and Richard Lyle.
Being an outcast Mark McDonald will be probably eating alone, sitting alone, and stared at, but hey if you want the £200,000 in wages you gotta be tough. At the age of 37, his political career is dead, and his employment prospects would appear to be zero or damn close to it.
As well as politicians making it clear that Mark McDonald shouldn’t be in Parliament others have joined the ‘call to arms’, Alison Rowat of Herald
“As a self-style “independent” MSP. One foot in, one foot out, doing the hokey-cokey with the rules and there is nothing the Parliament or his constituents can do about it for now”.
No love there from Alison Rowat.
What Holyrood needs is a shake up, this is because when you look at the MSPs, you are left with the question, is that it, is this the best that Scotland has to offer, a bunch of virtual signallers who operate to their own agendas. Mark McDonald sitting in Holyrood by default could ‘stink’ the place up, instead of a breath of fresh air, an unhealthy dose of shit to choke maybe what the place needs.
One thing that interests me is how Alison Rowat completely focuses on hanging one guilty person out to dry, and does even consider ripping off on Nicola Sturgeon who shielded McDonald. In the movies, it is important to define the ‘bad guy’ earlier on, in this case, the other ‘bad guys’ seem to be ignored as we get the time honoured proposition that this is all about one bad apple.
20% of staff at Holyrood claimed they have been ‘victims’, so where are the rest of the bad apples?
And who are they?
One thing, I do agree with is what Labour MSP Rhoda Grant said:
“Mark MacDonald was elected as an SNP member and therefore has space allocated to him in their offices and on their benches – he should remain in those spaces. The SNP cannot simply try to foist him off on other parties.”
Well done Rhoda, Mark McDonald ‘stinking’ up the fourth floor for the SNP would be entirely delicious, all the po faced buddies giving him the ‘silent treatment’ led by Nicola Sturgeon, oh to be a fly on the wall.
A Scottish Parliament spokeswoman said:
“Discussions around the practical arrangements for Mark McDonald's return are currently taking place. This includes a change of room. These discussions are ongoing and no decision has been taken.”
Now, yesterday, I was subject to Nationalist abuse, of course this isn’t new in the past I have suffered from this problem before, it seems the angry cybernat brigade didn’t like my views of the facts that the SNP had failed to protect food security in Scotland. I was called a ‘prick’ and a ‘fud’ and one keen mind suggested when I said I was busy that I was watching ‘Pornhub’ with a box of tissues masturbating. I was actually doing yesterday’s article while have a chat with someone at the same time, and trying to juggle that with a bit of studying.
Yesterday also saw the media praise Mhairi Black for a “powerful speech” after she took the opportunity to lower the standing of the Westminster Parliament by using foul language.
During a parliamentary debate on misogyny on the eve of International Women’s Day, she told MPs:
"I struggle to see any joke in being systematically called a dyke, a rug-muncher, a slut, a whore, a scruffy bint”.
"I've been told you can't put lipstick on a pig, let the dirty bitch each shit and die. I could soften some of this by talking about the c-word but the reality is there is no softening when you're targeted with these words and you're left reading them on my screen every day, day in, day out - she needs a kick in the cunt, guttural cunt, ugly cunt, wee animal cunt; there is no softening just how sexualised and misogynistic the abuse is."
Mhairi Black also mentioned that she had been contacted by a man she had never heard of before who told her:
"I've pumped some ugly birds in my time but I just wouldn't."
What this person is saying is that Ms. Black who is a lesbian has no SMV; SMV is sexual market value which is talk about by a group of men who follow something which is called Mgtow.
The premise of MGtow is tell men don’t get married, and ‘pump and dump’, plus don’t spend a nickel on a woman, also if she has kids stay clear of her with a bargepole since why play for another man’s kids. There is a lot more to this movement which is a response to the feminism movement. If Mgtow appeals to you there is more stuff online to read and watch.
What the guy is saying when he told Ms. Black:
"I've pumped some ugly birds in my time but I just wouldn't."
This is clearly stating that in his eyes she has no sexual market value to him, she might think that she is this young dynamic professional social justice warrior socialist, but it seems many people aren’t buying it. This coupled with her actions has led many people to despise her hence she doesn’t get called ‘nice things’.
There is a lot of anger out there in politics, and if I recall Ms Black wanted people to make a distinction between Mhairi Black the person and Mhairi Black the politician as if they were two separate things. I was wondering using her analogy could she make a distinction between Fred West, the next door neighbour and Fred West, the serial killer who tortured, murdered and chopped up people?
When Mhairi Black decided not to fight to save the children’s ward in Paisley, her take was that she wasn’t an MSP, but on election night you don’t see the returning officer say that ‘And Mhairi Black has been elected by the people of Paisley to represent them on reserved matters to Westminster’.
This is a difficult piece to write because I want to open up the debate on something which is clearly a tricky subject to talk about.
When people refer to Mhair Black as ‘cunt’, they are using what is regional dialect which imparts the proposition that in
is acting stupid. I would therefore suggest that people would dispute her claim
of misogynistic abuse, citing that cunt is equally applicable to both men
and women. Scotland
Finally, I am sure that people would want ask Mhairi Black the question, do you believe in equality, if her answer was yes, then clearly she is getting it.
