    Thumbs down Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse.

    This guy was suspended because he legally fired a gun in another country, before he was elected to office. Doing so was said to be "foolish and inappropriate conduct".

    BBC NEWS | UK | Scotland | Glasgow, Lanarkshire and West | Kalashnikov councillor suspended

    Kalashnikov councillor suspended

    Councillor Hanif apologised and said he regretted what had happened
    An SNP councillor in Glasgow has been suspended over allegations that he fired a Kalashnikov assault rifle while visiting Pakistan.

    The incident was said to have taken place during a family holiday in 2005.

    A party spokesman said there was no suggestion that Jahangir Hanif had broken the law but it appeared to be "foolish and inappropriate conduct".

    Councillor Hanif said the incident took place before he was elected. He will now face a disciplinary hearing.

    A statement from Councillor Hanif, who is presently in Pakistan, said: "I regret that this happened and apologise - it was foolish and inappropriate.

    "It took place over two-and-a-half years ago, long before I became a councillor.

    "I accept the actions of the party, and will wish to take part in the formal hearing on my return to Scotland."

    Disciplinary hearing

    An SNP spokesperson said: "Councillor Hanif is currently in Pakistan, and has not had the opportunity to put his side of the story.

    "On the face of it he has not broken the law, and there is no suggestion of any involvement in anything untoward. Nevertheless, this was very foolish and inappropriate conduct.

    "He is well aware of the SNP's strong views against firearms, particularly involving children.

    "Councillor Hanif has this afternoon been suspended from the party, and therefore the council group, pending a disciplinary hearing where he will have the opportunity to explain himself and this incident from 2005."

    What is the SNP?
    It is surely true that you can lead a horse to water but you can't make them drink. Nor can you make them grateful for your efforts.

    I'd tell them that I had broken no laws that it was perfectly legal and they could stick it`

    If he didn't shoot any children, what does that have to do with anything? This entire thing is amazingly absurd. Almost past the realm of believability.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    Stuff like this is becoming more believable each day, which is sad.

    I just don't get it, but then again, should we expect anything else?
    Just remember that shot placement is much more important with what you carry than how big a bang you get with each trigger pull.

    its a sad sad day when the scots fire a politician because he fired a gun.

    I thought the Scots had a rep for not being people to mess with. Since when did they start apologizing for remembering how to keep the English in line?

    Maybe he wasn't wearing his kilt and drinking scotch while he shot the gun
