The fact that you're still obsessing over this ancient history whilst Margaret Ferrier is still an MP indicates bias, quite frankly.
When it emerged Ferrier had broken the rules, she was suspended from the SNP immediately, Sturgeon condemned her actions-she did all she could, courtesy of her having no power to force her to step down as an MP. She did all she could. Meanwhile, Boris Johnson stood by Dom Cummings after he made laughable excuses for his actions. If a Labour MP/aide did what Dom Cummings did, you would have had a field day.
This. It's YOU has the bias here, Rhys. Ferrier absolutely should have been condemned, as she indeed was. I am not pretending her actions were okay and nor is anyone else. Several people have said this when you've dredged her up, that she was in the wrong. You, meanwhile, have done a tap dance with regards to Cummings and consistently played the "what about?" card. You'd absolutely have had a field day if it had been anyone who wasn't a tory. Deny it all you like, but the fact you won't even accept that what he did was clearly not within the rules (doing some incredible mental gymnastics in the process to avoid condemning him) points to this quite considerably. You've not yet provided any explanation as to how a 45 minute drive to a clear tourist site was in any way within the rules, that's all I'm looking for. At best you've admitted it was "a bit dodgy".
Oh, and for what it's worth - all the people in your meme, I haven't said their actions were okay either. You're the only one clinging to a specific person and doing gymnastics to justify their actions that you wouldn't do with any of the other people you referenced. THAT'S bias.
As for you "ancient history" argument - fine, we won't discuss anything from more than 6 months ago. That means you also can't bring up anything about Labour antisemitism from then, since that's "ancient history" too. Or anything from when Blair was PM, since that's also "ancient history".
