When we saw this a few days ago, we wondered what they wanted to hide.
And now we know.
So for anyone joining us late, here’s a small but representative selection of some of the delightful, charming, ladylike and absolutely-definitely-not-a-man-who-utterly-despises-women Leeze Lawrence’s Greatest Hits.
(Pictured above: Lawrence in varying degrees of focus.)
Lawrence has of course subsequently attempted to claim that most of these tweets were faked, although confusingly also claimed on the same day that they weren’t fake but that he’d just been quoting people and he stood by them.
Despite claiming that “I dont [sic] delete my past”, ironically the second of those tweets has now been deleted. But fortunately people had archived most of the offensive tweets before he deleted them, including here and here and here and here.
Curiously, despite making threats, Lawrence has not sued the person who archived the tweets for the alleged defamation/fakery.
He’s particularly obsessed with publicly abusing Joan McAlpine, along with other SNP feminist MPs and MSPs – something which is of course expressly forbidden in party rules, but which no action has ever been taken against Lawrence over.
Lawrence also likes to celebrate the illegal use of recreational drugs.
In 2009 he was arrested in connection with a large amount of heroin and cocaine.
Five members of a network of dealers and couriers were subsequently imprisoned for multiple offences.
Lawrence was also charged but his not-guilty plea was accepted by the Crown shortly before the trial, for reasons which have never been revealed.
As an office-holder in OFI, Lawrence – who previously claimed to be a “Scottish Government Equality Advisor” only for the Scottish Government to flatly deny it – is now involved in formulating the SNP’s rush-job definition of “transphobia”.
His lie would appear to have now come true – something that we’re sure can only end well for biological women in the party.
But to be fair, there’s one thing we agree with him entirely on.
The new-look SNP couldn’t hope for a better ambassador.
