This afternoon.

House of Commons, London.

Steve Bonnar, new SNP MP for Coatbridge Chryston & Bellshill crossed his fingers on his right hand as he took the oath of allegiance to the British crown.

Any excuse.

    Poor critters. Even republican English MPs have to take this oath. To a royal family riddled with scandals. This is the reason for abstentionism.

    Coatbridge is a like crickelwood in London or Yonkers in NY, it’s sort of an Irish area, where Irish immigrants settled, years ago and the second or third generations are now grown up. I visited there when I lived in Scotland and it’s a weird kind of familiarity you get meeting people with Irish heritage. i wish this guy all the best with it.
