Oaft, just need Kincy back on and we've got pretty much every empty headed British nationalist left in the thread.

Sorry to let you down, M9, but I'm in the process of refurbishing my flat and my Kiwi 'friend' (see previous posts) was giving me advice on seating and storage options.  I'd love to engage you here but for me, Thursday evening was mostly about Ottomans & Pouffes.

This is the worst one yet. To get a positive test and then travel on the train is ridiculous levels of arrogance.

She should not only resign, there surely must be a police investigation. How many people has she willfully endangered?

None. What she did was stupid and irresponsible but not wilful, unless you know otherwise.

Not wilful? She knew she had a positive test result when she set off. Do you think she fell onto the train?

Imagine you'd been in the same carriage as her.

She should have swapped places with the train driver and kept the cabin door shut.  At the end of the journey she gets off and he sanitises his cabin to use again himself.

Problem solved!

Blackford quick enough to call for Cummings to resign but now his miscreant MP has to consider her position and do the right thing. Expected nothing less of the cretin.

You do realise that she almost certainly doesn’t know how to drive a train, right?

If you can drive a car, you can drive a train.

Do you honestly believe that there is a gap between these 2 statements? Cummings could have been sacked by the Conservative party but they doubled down on him. Ferrier can't be sacked from her seat by the SNP but has had the whip withdrawn and no longer sits as an SNP MP. But you know that of course. If Cummings had an ounce of decency he'd have chucked it.  If Ferrier has an ounce of decency, she'll chuck it. She will, hopefully, be charged for her stupidity. Don't let that stop you building a wee set of gallows though.

Yeah, yeah and when I suggest Donald Trump's infected advisor should have swapped places with the pilot on Air Force One - well - they didn't like that idea either.

I agree in the main with your sentiments, but these are difficult and worrying times for many of us and I personally feel that she crossed a line knowing full well she was travelling south with symptoms and then to compound the issue she made a return journey on public transport knowing she was then diagnosed as positive.

As an SNP member I feel her behaviour in endangering the health of the travelling public places her position as untenable and if she does not resign she must be removed from the party and a BE called in her constituency.

My first thought looking at that pic was is this the P&B Arbroath pub crawl team photo from last year?

You don't know much about politics, do you?

She can be removed from the party, she cannot be forced out as an MP by the party.  Do you not know this?

She was only following British Rail advice...

How could a by election be called in her constituency unless she resigns?

If she is suspended by the commons for more than 2 weeks (ironically enough) that is grounds for a recall petition to start. One of the DUP ones nearly got skelped on this basis for failing to declare by bribes, though the mega geniuses in charge restricted the number of places one could go to sign said petition to 3 which I'm sure had no effect on the outcome.

I know that but I don't think that's what they meant?

There's no precedent here so it will be very interesting to see what the standards committee do. If she gets the ban then you'd imagine Labour & the Tories would work hard to get the necessary number of signatures.
