Sturgeon Repeatedly Refuses to Say Whether Trans Rapist Is a Trans Woman

It appears Nicola Sturgeon still doesn’t know what a woman is. Having tied herself up in multiple knots over the trans prisoner row earlier last week – “trans women are women, but…” – Sturgeon has apparently learned nothing, and still doesn’t have “enough information” to determine whether the double rapist Isla Bryson is a man or woman. “Hoisted by her own petard” barely describes this farce…

Appearing at First Minister’s Questions today, Sturgeon said:

“I think that rapists should be considered a rapist. That is what I think. That individual has been convicted of rapes, and that, therefore, is the terminology. I’m not going to get into the individual circumstances of that particular individual’s claims to be a woman because I don’t have enough information about that. But that individual has been convicted of serial sex offences and that is the relevant consideration in terms of which prison they should be accommodated in…”

Eventually Sturgeon finally conceded “my feeling is that is almost certainly the case” that the rapist is not, in fact, transgender. You think?

WATCH: Sturgeon Falls Apart Over Trans Women Prison Row

Guido tips his hat to Peter Smith for tying Nicola Sturgeon in multiple knots over the trans prisoner row. Asked simply “are all trans women, women?” – with the Scottish Prison Service having initially sent a double rapist to a women’s-only prison last week –  Sturgeon essentially claimed Smith was asking the wrong question. These are not the droids you are looking for…

Sturgeon: “That is not the point that we are dealing with here… Trans women are women, but in the present context there is no automatic right for a trans woman…”

Smith: “So there are contexts where a trans woman is not a woman?”

Sturgeon: No, there [are] circumstances when a trans woman will be housed in the male prison estate…”

Smith: “Is there any context in which a woman born as a woman will be housed in the male estate?”

Sturgeon: “Look, we’re talking here about trans women…”

Smith: “And I’m now asking about women born as women.”

Sturgeon: “I don’t think there are circumstances there, but…”

Smith: “So it’s different for trans women?”

Sturgeon: “Well, yes…”

Got there in the end…

Sturgeon’s £2 Billion Bank Still Without CEO One Year Later

A full year has passed since the CEO of the Scottish National Investment Bank inexplicably quit, and the £260,000-a-year job is still vacant with “no expectations” for when it will be filled. The state-owned bank was launched in 2020, with the SNP promising to throw £2 billion at it over ten years to push Scotland towards Net Zero. Its first Chief Executive, Eilidh Mactaggart, resigned after just 18 months. Neither the Bank nor the SNP initially gave an explanation. In fact, it wasn’t even publicly disclosed until 25 February…

In the meantime, the hunt for a replacement is proving more difficult than expected. Apparently no-one’s particularly interested…

A spokesperson for the bank says:

“We have retained an Executive Search agency, Spencer Stuart, for a contract of £175,000 that includes recruitment for the CEO. We have also incurred additional expenses of £5,400 for candidate testing used as part of the selection process. The contract with Spencer Stuart remains in place with no additional search fees beyond the original £175,000. There are no expectations for when the appointment will be announced and the role filled.”

So that’s billions in taxpayers’ money for a bank which currently has no permanent leader, and doesn’t know when it will find one…

“…he will be biting the hand off the SNP leader to try to work together”.

Lisa Nandy Backed Male Rapists in Women’s Prisons

It seems like the neverending push for wokeness hit the buffers this week as both the Labour leadership and Nicola Sturgeon managed to unite on the tricky question of whether a male sex offender pretending to identify as a trans woman should be housed in a women’s prison. The news comes as unfortunate timing for the SNP given their recent virtue signalling over gender self-ID, which opponents warned would lead to absurdities like this and who were called bigots for doing so.

Given both Yvette Cooper told the Today Programme that “This dangerous rapist should not be in a woman’s prison”, Guido reckons there may be some awkwardness around the shadow cabinet table.

Back when she was campaigning to become Labour leader, Lisa Nady was asked directly whether men identifying as women should be allowed in women’s prisons. The questioner used the 2018 example of a child rapist who was convicted and then went onto claim he was a woman. Nandy was asked whether he should be accommodated in a women’s or a men’s prison…

“I believe fundamentally in people’s right to self ID… so I think that crimes that are recorded should be recorded as that person wishes.”

You asked about whether trans people should be in women’s or men’s prisons. I think trans women are woman and trans men are men. So I think they should be accommodated in the prison of their choosing.”

Labour and the SNP now claiming that this trans rapist is not a woman despite the individual’s claim to the contrary entirely undermines the ‘trans x are x’ argument…
