Out of interest, the SNP have by plane, train, car and boat sent to Shetland this last few weeks:
- Ian Blackford MP
- Alison Thewliss MP
- Chris Law MP
- Margaret Ferrier MP
- John Swinney MSP
- Christian Allard MEP
- John Mason MSP
- Nicola Sturgeon MSP, three times
- Peter Murrell
- Alasdair Allan MSP
- Ross Colquhoun
- Jenny Gilruth MSP
- Shona Robison MSP
- Alyn Smith MEP
- Ruth Maguire MSP
- Cllr Jordan Linden
- Keith Brown MSP
- Claire Adamson MSP
- Gillian Martin MSP
- Derek Mackay MSP
- Michael Matheson MSP
- Mhairi Black MP
Not to mention the endless amount of ‘SNP students’.
The question I have is, what is the carbon footprint of all this unnecessary travelling with the SNP government having recently declared a climate change emergency?
