The safety of the public on the road is of prime importance, so when people drive without insurance, they are endangering others by their reckless behaviour.
I knew Humza Yousaf even before he became the failing Transport Minister, I used to be in the SNP, he is stupid and arrogant, but as people know, what goes around comes around.
And what has come around is Police Scotland catching the transport minister Humza Yousaf driving without insurance.
Transport Minister driving without insurance, the personal humiliation for him and the SNP must be intense as the Nationalists tend to be hypocrites. This latest episode of failure is hot on the heels of Yousaf’s bungling attempts to sort out the trains on
Humza Yousaf says he will plead guilty at the earliest opportunity, this is mighty big of him since he is caught anyway.
Humza Yousaf in public mitigation plea mode said:
'I will put my hands up. It's entirely my mistake and whatever the fiscal says I will agree to.'
The reason for his problem stems according to him to be the recent break up from his wife and the transfer of ownership of the couple's car, he was no longer the main policy holder so not insure to drive other vehicles.
A competent transport minister would have known this basic fact.
During the Holyrood 2016 election, I saw him at a local polling station in my area, as he passed me by, he couldn’t resist being cheeky to me by the flippant comment of:
‘There is my number one fan’.
At the time, I just thought ‘dick’ as he and his ‘minder’ wandered into the polling station.
And now karma has popped up and he has split from his wife, makes you wonder and as I wrote above, what goes around comes around.
His wife is as much of a git as he is but I think the political class may in public give him the sympathy vote.
You may remember his wife as person who tried to organise a hate campaign against the former Labour MP Ian Davidson before she was spectacularly outed.
Humza Yousaf is quite friendly with scum; his office manager is Shona McAlpine who I named in a criminal witness statement as being a follower of the hate account setup by Tommy Ball to brand me a paedophile.
You have to wonder what kind of disgusting animal Shona McAlpine is to follow a twitter account with the theme sexual intercourse with children.
Another piece of scum is of course someone who needs no introduction, Natalie McGarry who also helped Ball enable the abuse I suffered by linking my blog to Tommy Ball’s hate account.
Natalie McGarry got away with her part in the abuse but she is facing criminal charges of her own after two organisations which she was involved in contacted the Police. Although Natalie McGarry was elected as the SNP MP for Glasgow East, she sits as an independent after she was suspended from the party for being charged with embezzlement.
It seems that the world of Nicola Sturgeon is falling apart as her ‘allies’ experience bad fortune and no one will really shed a tear for them.
Since he has been caught, Yousaf has issued a grovelling apology and said he will use his mistake to remind others to check their insurance.
His famous quote on transport which people know is:
“I am no expert”.
Now, you add to that no expert on insurance, no expert on marriage, no expert on exercising good judgement either.
I remember the first time, I done activism with Humza Yousaf, him and his wife and myself went to a train station, both of them went to the opposite platform to hand out leaflets leaving me alone on the other side. Later Matt Kerr, the cllr turned on my side to hand out leaflets in support of Margaret Curran’. As I campaigned I watched as Humza Yousaf and his future wife sat on their asses being less than enthused by the menial task.
The attitude appeared to me to be the classic ‘couldn’t give a fuck’ attitude, the public face not matching the private individual.
Still on the positive side, Police Scotland seem to be on the ball, maybe in future Humza Yousaf should take more interest in details.
