Someone doing that could expect their instantaneous removal from the chamber, courtesy of MSP.

In all fairness, you need to understand that some of them are on multiple committees or have bills of their own that need to be presented to other committees and that they do sometimes have legitimate reasons for ducking out.

It's important that you remember you are a subject, not a citizen.

They were taken by a couple of people after the Tuesday event in hopes of them making an appearence today. I am not sure where they ended up. Bikebreath and Edleary may know.
