Nicola Sturgeon has failed the Scottish sisterhood
Can we still say that women wear knickers in these trans-ient times? Nicola Sturgeon, Scotland’s First Minister, has certainly got hers in a twist over the case of the transgender double rapist, whose biological sex she is still struggling to determine, despite the convicted sex offender now known as Isla Bryson being born Adam Graham.
The SNP leader virtue-signalled headlong into yet another farce this week as she refused to reply several times to Douglas Ross, the Scottish Conservative leader, over whether the criminal was now a woman, as her justice minister had said.
Sturgeon said that she didn’t have “enough information” upon which to form a precise opinion.
Sorry, but how much more intel could she possibly need than seeing the photograph of this scumbag, dressed in Lycra leggings that left very little to the imagination with regard to his male genitalia? Far from not having enough information – that picture alone provided us with quite the opposite: too much information and then some.
Notwithstanding how triggering that ghastly sight must have been for the victims of this appalling individual – is Sturgeon really so blind to the glaring pitfalls in her Gender Recognition Reform Bill that she cannot see (for want of a better expression) a cock and bull story when it’s staring her in the face?
How ironic that the self-styled queen of equality has failed to listen to the one woman capable of solving this “mystery” – Graham’s ex-wife, Shannon, who said: “He’s bulls------the authorities”.
In being more concerned about pronouns than protecting women, Sturgeon has failed the Scottish sisterhood.
