Mhairi Black: ‘I was born. I went to school. I left. I fried a fish. Now I’m an MP’ | Politics | The Guardian

Mhairi Black was 19 when she joined the SNP and 20 when she casually relieved the seat of Paisley and Renfrewshire South from the Labour party’s time-honoured, glass-eyed discipline-keeper, Douglas Alexander. “I thought he was very respectful on the night, I can’t fault him,” she says, from her constituency office in Paisley, a room containing nothing but three chairs and a two-bar fire, straight out of a Smiths song. “If anything, that’s the bit I didn’t like, thinking: ‘This guy’s going to lose his job.’” The slightest pause, and then: “I mean, he was poisonous during the campaign.”
