What you had to say about the in­ci­dent

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

James Kelly MSP be­came the talk of so­cial me­dia last week af­ter be­ing thrown out the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment cham­ber.

Labour mem­bers quickly started the hash­tag #free­jameskelly.

But not ev­ery­one was in a laugh­ing mood.

Here’s what you were say­ing on our Face­book site:

“I’m not a big fan of him but hav­ing watched the video on BBC I am now of firm be­lief that our coun­try is run by chil­dren. She chucked him out for not be­ing cour­te­ous but yet she can con­stantly in­ter­rupt. If any­one needs to apol­o­gise it’s her. Good on you James.”- Glenn Jamieson

“James Kelly,‘our MSP’a.k.a. The Invisible Man.”- Mur­ray A Nix

“I’m glad we have an Msp who’s ac­tu­ally will­ing to speak up and make a point of or­der when re­quired. It’s a sad day when the speaker is cen­sor­ing our elected politi­cians, par­tic­u­larly when they have a valid point to make.”- Chris Hestor McBarry

“She was out of or­der, she would not let him speak, She should be sacked.”- Mar­garet Brown

“Good to know we have an MSP pre­pared to stand up for Work­ers rights! Keep up the fight James.”- El­iz­a­beth-Anne Cal­laghan

“She’s a dis­grace, act­ing like a child in a strop. She is paid a mas­sive salary pen­sion etc. To let our MSPs speak on our be­half. She needs to go.”- Martina Mcder­mott

“He was told nu­mer­ous times to get to the point, but chose to pick an ar­gu­ment in­stead - seemed child­ish to me. As a union rep my­self, I’ll be the first to agree that the TU Bill is a dis­grace but get­ting your­self thrown out of the cham­ber is hardly an adult way of stand­ing up to it.”- Gary Painter
