‘No major surface ships in Scotland’ Glasgow MSP in social media meltdown

0 7


The MSP for Glasgow Shettleston, John Mason, has been tweeting about ‘no large surface ships’ being based in Scotland for over a day now but has also been ignoring requests for clarification, instead choosing to keep tweeting.

John Mason was asked multiple times why he would want a major surface ship to be based in Scotland, especially as Scotland is home to the UK’s submarine force, he however ignored all requests for clarification and continued to post.

The rationale, apparently, is that a major surface vessel should be based in Scotland to ‘stop the Russians’. This is despite the Scotland based submarine fleet being the primary anti-surface and anti-submarine platforms.

It didn’t stop there.

Again.

Again.

Again.

Again.

Again.

And again.

Also, it wouldn’t be a Twitter defence meltdown without a reference to the ‘carrier with no aircraft’ myth… despite both carriers having aircraft on-board right now.

After 24 hours, it’s still going no matter how many people ask for any sort of clarification.
