I would have thought it was Rule # 1: Don't ask people to vote for you and then complain about having been elected.

She was a one shot rifle. She simply does not have the education or the political experience to represent people in Parliament. Being a whizz on Twitter is NOT enough to be a part of the government. What does she know about anything?

Indeed. I would rather see a parliament made up of Mhairi Blacks than Jacob Rhees-Moggs.

I don't for one minute suggest the Mhairi Black is stupid. Far from it. She has a touch of the Owen Jones about her. But he has made some terrible mistakes, which have seen him marginalised by the Labour leadership. when a few months ago he was their shining beacon of hope. Mhairi Black has more passion than most, but lacks context for a lot of her opinions. And she clearly lacks a depth of knowledge and experience to be able to take on the really big and complex issues of government.

of course, she is a member of a one policy party, which makes things a little easier. But she must be wising up to the fact that the SNP are little more than flag waving nationalists, who want to keep everything and contribute nothing. They are Tartan Tories. looking after the well to do. None of their policies is aimed at the real working class, or the poor and disabled. They are the party of free social care and free university places, which mainly benefit the middle and upper income groups. She must see that. As she must look at the SNP in Westminster, and see a group of white middle aged , middle class men in suits , with a few token women to bolster the numbers. Its enough to douse cold water on the most passionate idealist. her natural home is the Labour Party. That is where she should be.

She has a First Class Honours degree in Politics and Public Policy from Glasgow. She's young for sure.

That said, she really has to re-think her hair do: personal appearance matters. It shouldn't but it does.

ahem...


and the University of Glasgow, where she was awarded a first-class honours degree in politics and public policy in June 2015.[3][5][6] At the time of her election she had not yet completed her undergraduate degree, with a final exam on Scottish politics still to be undertaken.[7]

So ?
She had not yet graduated when she was voted MP. She'd have done the course work as her finals result attests.

I must have misread that on FB yesterday when you called her (and I quote) "thick as a brick", I guess?
