OK, 16 to 54-year-olds… it’s down to you to get out, vote and free us from this crap.
Gavin: “See you Russians? You should go away… and shut up…
Or I’ll tell my dad.”
Dad: Gavin, take the flags out of your head. You’re supposed to be a big boy now.
Interesting that both Ruth and whatsisname (who I assume is a caretaker Labour leader. Come on, he makes Willie Rennie look good!) asked the First Minister to comment on matters which are outwith the competence of the Scottish government today.
Ruth went with the Russians. Not entirely sure that was wise. Firstly because what Russians do in Salisbury, in England has absolutely NOTHING to do with our first minister or our parliament… and, in any case, Ruth appears to have accepted a donation of £15,000 for a Russian to have dinner with her. (It must rile Ruth that a mate of Putin’s paid £30,000 to have dinner with Gavin “go away and shut up” Williamson.)
Mr Leopard, an associate of Keir Hardy, asked Nicola what would have been a reasonable question had employment law been in the purview of the Scottish parliament and government, about the pay conditions of people working on an ex-Carillion government project (which, incidentally, she said she would be happy to look into if he would share the details with her). She invited him to join her in trying to get employment law devolved to Scotland.
They really should be asking questions that have to do with the Scottish parliament. That’s what FMQs is about. Presiding Officer take note.
