Translation: "He's An Idiot Who Tweets What He Thinks You Want To Hear..."

Justice Secretary Humza Yousaf was slammed over a tweet mourning slain gangland figure Omer Sadiq - which was later deleted.
The Nats minister offered his condolences to the murdered hood, 32, in a bizarre tweet hours after the savage knife attack in Glasgow on Tuesday afternoon.
Mr Yousaf later wrote: “Dreadfully sad news. My thoughts are with the young man’s family, friends and local community.
The post was later deleted - and the politician was sent scores of messages urging him to apologise amid a huge online backlash.

"...just like any other politician, actually." 

A Scottish Government spokesperson said: “Mr Yousaf was responding to the incident that took place in his constituency, as the local MSP, and was not aware of the man who was fatally stabbed, or his background, when he initially posted.”

Fancy expecting a politician to look carefully at what he's saying to the voters!

Wonder if murdered man had been called Jimmy Smith or Jock Thompson would his most sincere message of condolence have been so quick?
Just askin'.

Social media - where the incredibly stupid prove to the world just how really, really stupid they are.

Is Scotland heading for Sharia law? A Muslim Secretary for Justice who has never had a proper job and with no legal experience or training - looks promising. Interestingly, at 35, already on his second wife.

I think we all know the answer to that one, don't we?

"Is Scotland heading for Sharia law?"

Imagine if they made Buckfast and square sausage haraam?!
