SNP MSP sends 3 daft tweets and is suspended; Tory MP sends 2 000 ‘sexual texts’ and is cleared

In the Observer yesterday:

A Conservative MP who bombarded two young women with lewd text messages has been cleared of wrongdoing by the parliamentary standards watchdog. Andrew Griffiths, 48, resigned as minister for small business last July after it was revealed he had sent 2,000 sexual texts to Imogen Treharne, a barmaid, and her friend in just 21 days, weeks after the birth of his first child. The watchdog said it had not found evidence that the Burton and Uttoxeter MP sent the messages while engaged in parliamentary activities and allegations that he breached the House of Commons code of conduct were not upheld.

He’s still a member of the Conservative Party.

In sharp contrast SNP MSP Mark McDonald was suspended from the party after sending these stupid tweets:

Remember McDonald carried out no physical abusive act, made no actual threats of an abusive act, was not charged by the police.
