Penny has bounced back from her endorsement of the Kangaroo Court to again jump on the SNP’s strife in today’s Business Questions. This time, she started by deploying the personal case of a disgruntled Scot, Fergus, from Inverness:
“An individual this week, Fergus, who’s from Inverness who’s worked in the legal profession many years and will shortly be drawing his pension is really dismayed at what is happening in Scotland. He’s against the deposit return scheme – he wants someone to come and sort that out. He’s against the ill-thought out protected marine areas, he’s against the SNP’s transition from oil and gas and he’s against the SNP riding roughshod over the UK Equality Acts. What would the honourable lady’s advice to Fergus be, what would she suggest to him, given that Fergus is actually an SNP member of the Scottish Parliament and this week voted to support a motion of no confidence in his own government’s co-leader?”
Penny had some advice for Fergus, “fill out an application form to join the Conservative Party”…
Penny Mordaunt has again used a despatch box outing to leave opposition members calling for an ambulance.
Yesterday afternoon, her seemingly-innocent gaze turned away from her usual Labour victims to the SNP’s Deidre Brock. The Leader of the House recalled the way the SNP turned their back on the 2014 Independence poll result, and their disdain for democracy when voting against an EU referendum:
“SNP Members try to paint themselves as the defenders of democracy, despite ignoring the result of the referendum and despite their voting to deny the people of Scotland and the whole UK their say on whether to be part of the EU – I have brought that Hansard with me, too. I remind the House that the SNP was the only party to vote against the EU referendum.”
