Mhairi Black

Mhairi Black born in Paisley, Scotland

12 Sep, 1994

Black is born in Paisley, Scotland. Her father, Alan, is a retired teacher. Her first political memory is of being taken to march against the Iraq war – mainly because her aunt gave her a huge cherry lollipop called a “frying pan” that hadn’t been available in Scotland for years.

Marching was magic! But what I did notice was, with Labour it had always been, ‘Oh, they’re the good guys.’ And I remember seeing that change.
