Kezia Dugdale had a wee mishap with the voting system at Holyrood yesterday during the Council Tax debate where she failed to support a Conservative amendment which would have defeated the Government.
Kezia is adamant that she pressed a button, now it’s not hard to press a button, even Willie Rennie was able to press the button, so Scottish Labour are now demanding an investigation into this shocking debacle.
Parliamentary authorities are saying that they have checked the system and it is working fine. When I heard this story last night I just thought it really could have only happened to Kezia Dugdale. I would also think that most of the time it would just be unlucky, but it’s Kezia Dugdale.
My theory is that she didn’t press the button, she was thinking about her shopping, her weekend in Liverpool, her hair dresser appointment or whatever, but she was certainly not thinking about the issue or the vote. A vote that is really not about Council Tax but about defeating the SNP and she missed her chance lol.
Kezia has a history of gaffes, from twitter trolling complaints to supporting independence to not supporting independence. She said Labour would not finish 3rd in last Mays elections, to the manifesto coming out the day before the vote, to comparing the Leave campaign during the EU Referendum to the YES Campaign during the Indy Referendum, comparing YES voters to the more extreme leavers.
Kezia Dugdale cheers me up and makes me laugh, Kezia Dugdale is the gift that keeps giving and long may that continue.
