No, Srsly. Scotland to Trump: We Meant It When We Said ‘F*ck Off’.
Calls are growing to keep Trump out of Scotland, not just for health reasons and temporarily, (we’re in total lockdown), but permanently, on the grounds that he’s ‘not conducive to the public good.’ I guess insurrection counts!
From The Scotsman:
Calls grow to ban ‘dangerous criminal’ Donald Trump from visiting Scotland
A growing number of politicians across Scotland have backed calls to bar Donald Trump from entering Scotland and the UK in the wake of recent violence in Washington DC, describing him as a “dangerous criminal” who should face prosecution. […]
[I]n the aftermath of Wednesday’s Capitol riots, Humza Yousaf, the justice secretary, wrote to Ms Patel urging her to make an exclusion order against Mr Trump on the grounds that his presence would not be conducive to the public good.
This comes after First Minister Nicola Sturgeon already told Trump to fuck off out of the White House, and to forget about fleeing Biden’s inauguration by coming to Scotland, because we’re in lockdown:
[…]I hope and expect that - as everybody expects, not everybody necessarily will hope - that the travel plan immediately that [Trump] has is to exit the White House.[…]
Now back to the Scotsman, and a particularly revealing comment:
[…] after The Scotsman contacted every elected representative whose constituency, region or ward takes in one of Mr Trump’s properties, more politicians have said Mr Trump should be persona non grata.
Joan McAlpine, the SNP MSP for the south of Scotland, said: “Angela Merkel compared the attack on the Capitol with the burning of the Reichstag by the Nazis and she was right – this was an attempted coup.
“Trump should lose presidential immunity and face criminal charges … I would certainly support a ban on him entering the country and any legal means by which we could end our association with this dangerous criminal.”
Also, the next independence referendum can’t come soon enough.
