Mind you he’s doing ok despite that. He’s been a Minister or spokesman for the SNP since he was in his mid-twenties despite his time as an apprentice mechanic being the highlight of his career up to then. But Scotland must do more. He sees his appointed roles as providing a platform to berate his unappreciative hosts. Mastering his brief straggles far behind. This from the Express: “NICOLA Sturgeon’s collapsing government is facing yet another shambles as calls are made for one of her closest aides to be sacked. ‘Humza Yousaf, the prolific twitter using Transport Minister, recently admitted he knew nothing about his brief as he tried to defend the Scottish Government’s failures.’ He had more urgent things in mind. Like tweeting “To our shame [don’t you just love the ‘our’] there are no Black Members of the Scottish Parliament. There was no Black voice in today’s debate on anti-racism, so I wanted to make sure the last words in the debate were the last words uttered by George Floyd – never forget them.”
Maybe, just maybe, the proliferation of whites faces (or being Scotland, a fetching shade of grey) is due to the fact that the country is – allegedly – 96% White. It’s really rather simple.
