Green / SNP Amendment Exempts 16 & 17 Year-Old Scots from Lockdown Fines

The Scottish Youth Parliament, which is in favour of Votes at 16, has managed to successfully pressure the SNP & Scottish Green Party to exempt 16 and 17 year olds from any fines for breaking Scotland’s coronavirus lockdown rules. The Scottish Government yesterday officially backed bonkers Green MSP Ross Greer‘s amendment, exempting children from the fines in Scotland, yet retaining their ability to vote. The SNP believes that 16 year olds are old enough to select their lawmakers but too young to be fined as a lawbreaker…

Research show sixteen and seventeen year-olds are of course among the most likely to break the lockdown, so it’s a little rich for the Scottish Government to argue their lockdown is more cautious than England’s only to not enforce it for a significant chunk of the population. Backing rights without responsibility is not a great recipe for success…

Churchill-Hating MSP is Self-Described Communist and Kim Jong-Un Fan

Ross Greer was elected to the Scottish Parliament in 2016, as one of six Green Party MSPs. He rose to UK wide attention this week, attracting the ire of Piers Morgan, by calling Winston Churchill a “white supremacist” and a “mass murderer” on Twitter. People shouldn’t have been surprised. Greer has a long and distinguished history of writing stupid things on Twitter…

Guido has compiled some of the sillier and more sinister things he has tweeted over the years. These include…

  • Wanting the Scottish Youth Parliament to congratulate Kim Jong Un
  • Calling for “FULL COMMUNISM”
  • Calling on the Greens to oppose “NATO imperialism”
  • Wanting to sing the Internationale
  • Resenting being called a “former” communist
  • Stating that the only war was “class war”
  • Calling himself a “watermelon” (green outside, red inside)
  • Admitting to chanting “we’re selling the Falklands when Thatcher dies” at Tories

What a lovely chap. Read a curated selection of his tweets below…
