Scottish Nationalist MP Margaret Ferrier Given 270 Hour Community Service Order

Glasgow Sheriff Court has whacked ex-SNP MP Margaret Ferrier with a 270-hour community payback order for boarding a long-distance train during the pandemic while knowing she had Covid.

Ferrier Now Accused of Another Covid Rule Breach

Sturgeon’s mate and ex-SNP MP Margaret Ferrier now faces a new allegation she breached Covid laws after her grand super-spreading tour of the UK in 2020. To remind co-conspirators of Ferrier’s Covid exploits, the MP got Covid symptoms and took a test; that same day she visited a gym, beauty salon and a shop; while waiting for the test results she took the train from Scotland to London and spoke in parliament that evening; the same evening she got a positive test result back and returned to Scotland the next morning.
