Find that video a bit laughable tbh. Agree there needs to be a review and no fan of the SNP, but that display is very poor. Pretty much three folk on the same side patting each other on the back.

You'll have to clarify what was laughable and very poor, was it because it was Scottish MPs. and not Unionists doing the interventions?

No, it was because a very serious point came across like a three person circle-jerk in my opinion.

It didn't need three of them to raise the issue and it also didn't need to sound like a read through of a script.

Do you really think it was scripted with the three participants from different parties two of them skilled lawyer's, one who single handedly used her skills to re-open Westminster when prorogued .

It's good to see any parties working together for the common good rather than their party. Saying that, not convinced Cherry won't jump ship.

Don't disagree, bit ominous her sitting there when the others all left. It was AS who talked her into politics.
I suspect if the Alba party is to grow they may need to consider another Leader at their Autumn conference, unfortunately AS has been cast as toxic, and a lot of it his own doing.

Agree. Can't see Alba progressing with Salmond and also with people who are SNP cast-offs. I don't know if our local MP has jumped ship yet but imagine he will soon if he hasn't.

The weird and wonderful ways of Westminster! Isn`t it also possible to make accusations which would be slanderous if made outside parliament because MPs are protected by `parliamentary privilege`?

Saw this earlier. Laughable.

So call someone out correctly for telling massive lies and then YOU have to apologise!

Don't think I've seen a more boring, less compitent opposition as Starmer in my lifetime. Labour will go absolutely nowhere under than man's 'leadership'

Controlled opposition.

Carole Baskin fed Rasta to a tiger.
