SNP hypocrite Margaret Ferrier put lives at risk – the police must act

Plague dimwit

“THE advice is crystal clear. For the safety of others, anyone with coronavirus symptoms must self-isolate. They should not leave the house for any reason.”

So said stinking hypocrite Margaret Ferrier, the SNP MP, as she demanded Dominic Cummings be fired for driving to his parents’ outbuilding to self-isolate.

A course of action, it turns out, 1,000 times more responsible than Ferrier’s.

She had a test for her symptoms, then took a train to London and spread germs around Parliament.

When her positive result came through, she still didn’t stay put.

Staggeringly, she got a train back to Scotland.

Then she tweeted a clip of herself speaking in the Commons with Covid. 

How many lives has this reckless, ­holier-than-thou moron put in danger?

Police must act.

Save our pubs

WHY must the Covid “whack-a-mole” ­strategy keep punishing pubs?

We get that the Government must ­target those areas where infections are rising fastest. But pubs and restaurants spent the summer making themselves Covid-secure. It was that or the dole.

They have since been pole-axed by the 10pm curfew which ­evidence suggests is needless and may even be counter­productive.

Now, under “local lockdowns”, different households cannot meet up there for a pint or a meal.

Yet these venues are not causing the flare-ups. No wonder “Red Wall” pub boss Christian Burns admits on this page that he’s at his wits’ end.

The rules are not only too complex. Some make no sense — and are ruinous.

Fix it, Boris, or your new voters might blame you for closing down their towns.

Who are EU?

THE EU’s threat to sue Britain is desperate and utterly futile.

If we strike a deal, the UK law Brussels objects to won’t be enacted. If we don’t, Britain will be just weeks from leaving the EU courts’ remit anyway.

Who was President Ursula von der Leyen even aiming this portentous announcement at?

The EU has scores of active lawsuits against its own members. This one won’t intimidate our Government — or move the dial on the talks.

Brussels should focus solely on those, not on grandstanding and daft menaces.

Korma blimey

OLD phone boxes can have many new uses.

As the venue for the Lib Dem conference, say. Or the AGM of the Gavin Williamson fanclub. You could buy one and rent it out on Airbnb. We’ve seen worse.

Or, like Tayyab Shafiq on Page 23, you could turn it into a curry house. Though it’s probably best diners can’t stay to eat.

Looks a little chilli.
