Lefty Lunacy: Scots Nats splash your cash


Scottish Nationalist MPs have spent nearly a quarter of a million pounds raising frivolous issues in Parliament.

Since last May, SNP MPs have tabled 869 early day motions (at an average cost of £271 each and adding up to more than £235,000) to raise ‘issues’ such as welcoming a Christmas tree to Glasgow, noting the 50th anniversary of Star Trek and celebrating a constituent reaching the final 13 of the Miss Scotland competition.

The news came on the same day Nicola Sturgeon continued being a bad loser and said she wanted a second independence referendum.

At least in an independent Scotland there will be no room for the above frivolities. With oil prices on the floor and no more bankrolling from English taxpayers, Scotland will be Europe’s new Greece.
