ONE of the SNP’s new MPs crossed his fingers as he swore his oath to the Queen yesterday.

Steven Bonnar, who won Coatbridge, Chryston and Bellshill, at last week’s election, made the gesture as he made his affirmation - as all MPs are required to do - to “Queen Elizabeth II, her heirs and successors”.

However, he later tweeted a screengrab in which his hand was cropped out of the image.

“That’s us all official now,” he said.

“I have been sworn in as the MP for Coatbridge Chryston and Bellshill. I look forward to serving all constituents to the best of my ability for the time Scotland remains within the UK.”

In his oath, the SNP’s Gavin Newlands said he was affirming in order to “serve my constituents”.
