The press has been full of articles praising female leaders while ignoring some egregious examples of poor behaviour and poor leadership.
The latest example of poor behaviour concerns the female Member of Parliament Margaret Ferrier who represents Rutherglen and Hamilton West in Scotland. For a brief report of her actions click here.
It seems that that she spoke in parliament while feeling unwell with symptoms of COVID-19 and while she was waiting for a test result. Then, as if this wasn’t bad enough, after she had recieved a positive result she travelled back to Scotland on the train. In doing so she showed a reckless disregard for her colleagues in Parliament and her fellow passengers on the train.
It will be interesting to see the coverage this gets. What she has done is far worse than anything Dominic Cummings did when he travelled to Durham in his own car. Will she get a fraction of the abuse that Mr Cummings recieved – I doubt it.
