SNP MSP Keith Brown, remember the name you will hear it again. This is the man who done the dirty on Wendy Alexander, the Scottish Parliament, the Scottish people and, inadvertently his own wretched party the SNP.
He chaired the standards committee in her case and, when he should have ruled that no further action should be taken because there was a tie he used his casting vote to suspend her. By doing this he turned an independent parliamentary committee into a partisan witch hunt, people are still trying to find out if this has ever happened before, he seems to have done the impossible, he has lowered the reputation of the SNP a truly Herculean feat.
Everyone is talking about the seeming anomaly between two conflicting pieces of legal advice given to parliament, he didn't even see fit to mention that momentous fact in his summing up, do you think he missed it ?
With a tied vote and this legal wrangle in front of him he should have gone no further but, he saw his chance to ingratiate himself with his party and, without the benefit of any legal training or experience he chose the one which ruled against her.
This deceit was not all, he delayed using his casting vote to make sure parliament would not have time to deal with it, thus prolonging the thing over another couple of months, causing her resignation, it's him who should be suspended, the SNP should deal with him but they wont.
In a cack handed display reeking of collusion, all three SNP big hitters Salmond (the spiv) Sturgeon and Swinney declared today it was nothing to do with them, twist in the wind Keith Brown, denied by the people he was trying to crawl to, It's been going on for nearly a year and these 3 amigos knew nothing about this, you decide.
I wonder if he might think in future that people are talking about him in the canteen queue ?
The parliament has been shamed by the SNP and the world sees a crude dishonest Govt. prepared to stoop so low that neither the name of Scotland or Holyrood is enough to make them do the decent thing.
As for Keith Brown ? in most political parties he would be finished, in the SNP he will thrive, his name might even become famous like Boycott or Quisling, I reckon his pieces of silver will be a promotion next term.
