Labour MSP for Central Scotland.
Scottish Labour MSP for North East Scotland
@57FK66 No you're right, it shows the fiscal starting point. It doesn't show how an independent Scotland would generate the minimum of £40 Billion in Foreign Exchange reserves to pursue Sterlingisation. Scotland’s current account deficit was -10% of GDP last year. these-islands.co.uk/publications/i… https://t.co/CQkMQ4nt8T
I outlined the vast gap between the SNP's rhetoric and their actions. In 2014 we were told Scotland could be independent in 500 days. However it's taken the Scottish Government 6 times as long to sort out some areas of benefits alone. Watch: bit.ly/2uVB6Yf https://t.co/Idjzaclhd8
Since 2010, 15 bank branches have closed across #Angus making us one of the worst affected areas in Scotland. I am conducting a short survey to understand how these closures have affected our communities - please take a moment to fill it in and share: forms.gle/LgZMLndUg5uSxe…. https://t.co/STcuEDiDLp
Delighted that @theresa_may confirmed the UK Government will continue to protect our brave armed forces in Scotland from the SNP's unfair tax grab. Myself & @Douglas4Moray fought hard for this - we will keep pushing the SNP to treat our troops fairly. Another @ScotTories win! 🇬🇧 https://t.co/5yBFsftYX9
A bit like the Green Party holding Scotland to ransom over a further divisive separation referendum with the SNP despite commanding only a minority share of the vote. I would have thought Nicola Sturgeon of all people would understand the idiosyncrasy of parliamentary arithmetic.
Yesterday on Politics Scotland, I spoke about the tragedy of so many young people losing their lives to knife crime. All parties agree there needs to be action and the Government could learn from the Violence Reduction Unit brought in under the previous @ScottishLabour Government https://t.co/Y1OSO5Bw7K
RBS doubled its profits in 2018, the year it began shutting down 60 branches in Scotland. Just 0.5% of those profits could have been used to keep those banks open. Instead they're closing and the Chief Exec is getting an extra 100k a year. news.sky.com/story/treasury…
