Scottish politician wants to bring back the guillotine

A candidate for city council in Glasgow, Scotland, says she wants to bring back the guillotine.

Gisela Allen, the populist UK Independence Party’s candidate for Garscadden/Scotstounhill, said that the death penalty should be re-instituted in the country and the guillotine could take place of hanging.

    It would be cheaper than hiring expert swordsmen from France.

    • Kathy Prendergast

      Especially as those swordsmen are probably unionized now, like all French workers.

        The guillotine workers could be paid by head(s).

    They do say the guillotine is more humane than hanging, albeit more grisly.

      It would save the arguments in Arkansas over expiration of drugs and end interference by big Pharma in drug supply for executions.

    Make rape a capitol offense in Sweden, set up some guillotines and give a few rapists the chop, starting with those livestream perverts.

    Watch the rape wave subside once a few rapists are forced to forfeit their heads…

    • There could be a mini-guillotine too.

      • Mickey Oberman

        Yes. A great way to remove a rapists weapon.

    Where the fuck is Scotland?

    The Scots want their own fucking Country.
    No wonder my ancestors left .
    You are are still as stupid as you used to be.

    This must be immediately prevented due to the unfair misappropriation of a traditional French invention. If they want to go ahead they need to negotiate with the French for cultural royalties, possibly paid on a per capita basis. Which French person or organisation I do not know as I don’t know if the SJWs has worked out who represents French culture.

    Of course if they really want to stay with a Scottish invention, they could go with their Scottish Maiden, or a modern version of the same.

    Or they could just import some recently experienced Syrian beheaders. I think they would offer reduced rates for any Kufr, but it might be a problem if the criminal to be executed was of the same muslim sect as the executioner.

      The French will very soon no longer need their guillotine.
      They will soon be using the customary dull Islamic knife.

    And, just the thing for slicing your haggis.

    A guillotine would save the arguments in Arkansas over expiration of drugs and end interference by big Pharma in drug supply for executions.

    The guillotine would undoubtedly be a more humane way of dispatching a haggis than the present method of stabbing the poor creature.
