The Daily Mail has a great hit on the extra-curricular activities of Alex Salmond and Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh. They’ve been caught on a three day jolly to Strasbourg enjoying “three-and-a-half-hour lavish booze-fuelled dinners” at a Michelin star restaurant. Guess who is picking up the tab? The Mail reports “Mrs Ahmed-Sheikh is a regular presence at Mr Salmond’s side”. These pics were taken close to the hotel where Salmond and Tasmina were staying:
Och aye the two…
Yet another Nat is up to no good. Natalie McGarry, Michelle Thomson, Corri Wilson, Chris Law and Phil Boswell have all previously faced various misconduct probes, and now pressure is mounting on Nicola Sturgeon to suspend high-profile SNP poster girl Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh after details emerged of alleged financial irregularities. The splash of this morning’s Scottish Daily Mail discloses allegations relating to Ahmed-Sheikh’s work as a solicitor before she entered politics. The Law Society of Scotland is probing her role in administering “a trust fund set up to help a vulnerable person”. Another solicitor with whom Ahmed-Sheikh established a law firm is also facing a Law Society probe. 9% of SNP MPs elected in 2015 have faced some sort of financial irregularities probe.
So far Sturgeon is refusing to suspend Ahmed-Sheikh – this is the height of hypocrisy given SNP policy is to suspend MPs facing investigation. Just a few days ago Alex Salmond was banging on about dodgy Westminster politicians, what would he say about Tasmina?
This is the level of debate from zombie Remainers like the SNP’s Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh: asking the government if they have considered establishing a deportation process for EU citizens. The government has repeatedly said it will guarantee the rights of EU citizens once the EU reciprocates for Britons. It is the EU that is holding back an agreement. Talk of rounding up French and Germans in Britain and deporting them is quite mad. As Remainer scrutiny of Brexit goes, this is particularly naff.
The SNP’s Tasmina Ahmed-Sheikh complains to the Speaker that Nicholas Soames made a “woof woof” sound to her during the Trump debate. Soames apologises for the “canine salute”. His bark’s worse than his bite.
