Covid-positive MP Margaret Ferrier apologises for Parliament visit

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-54379026

An SNP MP has apologised for travelling to Westminster despite experiencing Covid symptoms - and travelling home after getting a positive result.

Margaret Ferrier, the MP for Rutherglen and Hamilton West, said there was "no excuse for my actions".

She said she took a test on Saturday - but travelled to Westminster on Monday because she was feeling "much better". Ms Ferrier received a positive test result that same day, then took a train back to Scotland on Tuesday.

The SNP is not removing the whip from Ms Ferrier, and is waiting for the police to investigate.
Naturally, those that she came intp contact with aren't very pleased .....

Well, she'll have passed it on to quite a few people who, even if they don't show symptoms, could well be carriers now. What a dozy cow.

Maybe folks who came within two metres of her were dozy Cows also?

Yes, I agree Roxy.
She knew full well what she was doing, and it was both selfish and irresponsible.

Would you have got close to an unknown quotient Mups?

Where does the responsibility lie?

Tried being two metres apart at all times on a train? Passing each other in an aisle or corridor? Sitting in a booked seat, or indeed sitting in any seat, in a busy carriage? Getting on and off the train?

No, even SHE says her actions are indefensible. I'm glad she's been suspended, hope she's sacked or forced to resign and in addition will have to pay the 4,000 fine that has been mentioned.

That's what "Lockdowns" are for?

So suspecting she had Covid-19 from the symptoms she was showing and on this basis having a Covid-19 test, why did she not follow lockdown protocol and isolate at her residence until the results came back? Why did she not follow lockdown protocol and remain in isolation when the positive result arrived? Why did she KNOWINGLY use public transport over several hours knowing she was infected with Covid-19? Your attitude is disingenuous and flippant.
