Abstract

Mhairi Black is making history. In 24 hours, the maiden speech of the Scottish National Party’s MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South has been watched almost 3.5 million times on the Channel 4 Facebook page alone. At 20 years of age, Britain’s youngest MP since 1667 spoke with wit and power. Even the Daily Mail, a newspaper that seldom praises the SNP, called Black’s speech one of the best of the year.
