"The nuns can get tae fuck"

Politicians have a reputation for being remote from and out of touch with the electorate, but that's not an accusation that can be levelled at new SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South, Mhairi Black. The 20-year-old's stunning election victory over shadow Foreign Secretary Douglas Alexander has prompted the Independent to trawl back through her tweets, which prove that she had the taste in booze and Malcolm Tucker-esque aptitude for swearing that you'd expect from a Glaswegian teenager. I'm not sure quite what the paper's implying, but there's nothing to be ashamed of here - apart, perhaps, from expressing rabid enthusiasm for Oasis.
