Nicola Sturgeon will always put her selfish obsession with another divisive referendum before the real priorities of the people of Scotland 👇
According to Nicola Sturgeon, if the Supreme Court decision goes in favour of the Scottish Government, the judgment must be respected.
If it goes against them, it's all Westminster's fault.
Crazy for Sturgeon to divert taxpayers’ money to referendums rather than the NHS, the cost of living, schools and jobs.
These are the issues that matter to Scots and they will have my total focus.
🪖 Whether it be delivering vital vaccines, training Ukrainian soldiers, or keeping our skies and shores safe, the men and women of our Armed Forces go above and beyond
🇬🇧 On Armed Forces Day, we salute your service
It was a busy day of advice surgeries in Hawick and Melrose today - as ever, a big variety of issues and concerns raised by local residents!
Details of the summer surgery tour coming out soon!
✂️ A pleasure to officially open Angels Sweet Spot on Hawick High Street recently
🍬 It is always great to see exciting new family businesses opening in the #ScottishBorders

A glorious evening tonight in Melrose with Cllr Jenny Linehan for the Installation of the Melrosian and the Crowning of the Festival Queen.
Congratulations to Melrosian Douglas Crawford and Festival Queen Madeline Rausse
Fascinating visit to the St Abbs Marine Station to celebrate the signing of the new partnership agreement with Edinburgh University
🛣 Good transport links are vital for prosperity in the #ScottishBorders
🚆I continue to push projects like the upgrade of the A1 and the extension of the Borders Railway to Hawick, Newcastleton and Carlisle at the very highest level
Scottish Borders Tory MP John Lamont (@John2Win) asks PM to "reconfirm... govt's support" for A1 upgrades & study on extending Borders Railway to Carlisle
@BorisJohnson says DfT working with Transport Scotland on possible Borders Railway extension & A1 decision = later this year
👏🏻 Delighted to be supporting the @jocoxfoundation and @great_together in Parliament today.
💬 We are doing all we can to secure the export of grain from Ukraine.
Foreign Secretary @trussliz has updated @HouseofCommons on Russia's blockade of Ukrainian grain.
Tory MP @John2Win criticises SNP hunt for source that leaked Ian Blackford recording to Daily Mail
“It is appalling that more effort is going into preventing a leak than preventing sexual harassment in the future”
Tory MP @John2Win has written to Ian Blackford
He says SNP Westminster leader’s actions have “not only failed” victim of Patrick Grady, but also “made it less likely that future victims come forward”
“That is a disgrace. It is unforgivable”
🏎 A really magnificent setting for the @SJYSClassic at Thirlestane Castle near Lauder today.

An incredible morning in Selkirk for the 2022 Common Riding
🪖 @BWallaceMP gets it absolutely spot on. Scottish independence puts the security of NATO at risk in what are already turbulent times http://heraldscotland.com/politics/20206526.commons-clash-snp-nato-policy/
UK tech, backed all the way by this government, is helping to grow our economy and delivering jobs for the people of Scotland 🏴🇬🇧
The SNP's latest push for indyref2 is the wrong priority - at the worst possible time.
After Covid, in a global cost of living crisis, we should be focused on rebuilding, not dividing Scotland.
Nicola Sturgeon should give it a rest - and focus on people's real priorities.
🤦♂️People's finances are under strain, and public services in Scotland are worse than ever
📈Let's focus on combatting the cost of living crisis and getting our NHS back on track, instead of this incredible waste of time and money
Getting into the spirit of the Hawick Common Riding with @Rachael2Win
Up the mair #hawick
An incredible day in Hawick for the return of their annual Common Riding.
Congratulations to Cornet Greig Middlemiss
After a two year gap, there were incredible scenes in Hawick tonight as the Common Riding returned!
#commonridings @HawickCR #ScottishBorders #hawickcommonriding
Ahead of the Hawick Common Riding Colour-Bussing, the Town Hall is looking magnificent.
5 years ago today I was honoured to be elected as the MP for Berwickshire, Roxburgh & Selkirk.
It’s been the greatest privilege of my life.
I remain indebted to the voters who placed their trust in me and the incredible team of volunteers who campaigned to make it happen.
Tonight, I have voted against the Prime Minister in the Vote of Confidence.
I have also resigned as PPS to Liz Truss at @FCDOGovUK.
My statement below 👇
A wonderful end to the @Jubilee_Pageant!
Yet more spectacular images from the Mall and Buckingham Palace for the #PlatinumJubileePageant
Nowhere else on earth could we see scenes like this.
Great to see so many people in Duns today to celebrate the #platinumjubilee
Well done to the organisers.
The square is looking lovely and busy, the pipe band are tuning up! And after your lunch don't forget that the Macmillan plant sale and strawberry tea is on in the hall 2-4pm, lots of lovely plants on offer and all in a good cause!
What an incredible show!
Pitch-perfect in every way.
God Save The Queen!
👸 What an amazing morning in Kelso to celebrate the #PlatinumJubilee
🇬🇧 Thousands in the crowd to mark this momentous occasion.
💙 And Kelso and the #ScottishBorders looking at their best.
🇬🇧 It was an immense honour to attend the #PlatinumJubilee #TroopingTheColour in London yesterday.
💙 It was incredible to join so many thousands of people from across the UK and the world celebrate this momentous occasion.

👑 Congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on her #PlatinumJubilee
🇬🇧 Despite the turmoil + political change over the last 70 years, The Queen has remained a steadfast figure in our lives.
👏 This is a moment to celebrate and to thank The Queen for a lifetime of service
🚵 Well done to @VoteJardine and his team for securing this fantastic global event for the #ScottishBorders
🌲 This solidifies the the area as a world class destination for cycling, bringing tourism and jobs with it
Towns and villages like #Jedburgh, #Selkirk and #Coldstream will be upgraded by 2026
Great to be joined by the 'fabulous five' @ScotTories colleagues today at our first in person council meeting @sbc. We aim to make a difference in our communities.
Jane Cox, Leagh Douglas, Carol Hamilton
🤦♂️ Another Natrail Natfail.
Services slashed on the Borders Railway from 32 to just 15 per day and now most trains are running with fewer carriages
Among the passengers on board the first train to call at Reston in more than 50 years was local MP @John2Win
It's being described as a "landmark moment" for Berwickshire.
The first train in almost 60 years picked up passengers in Reston at 6.16am this morning.
Our reporter, @AllyMcGilvray was aboard the @TPExpressTrains service from Edinburgh Waverley, and brings us this report...
🚂 A momentous and happy day for Berwickshire with the first train stopping at Reston station since 1964!
The local community have campaigned for this station to re-open for decades - and today it finally happened! 🎉
We’re ready and waiting for you!
Join us on board the 5.29 @TPExpressTrains service from @NetworkRailEDB this morning - which, at 6.16am - will become the first passenger service to stop at Reston in @scotborders for 58 years 🚝
While the SNP’s Minister for Transport is chauffeured around in taxpayer-funded limos, Scotland is facing a Black Monday of transport chaos.
🛤️1/3 rail services axed
⛔Miles of roadworks causing gridlock on major routes
⛴️Ongoing ferry crisis for islanders
Seems like the SNP are determined to destroy another one of Scotland’s public services.
Newly nationalised #ScotRail: Customers should ‘consider making their own arrangements’ after cancellations caused by driver shortages, and ‘no guarantee’ of replacement transport. What a shambles …
I popped in to see Mark and the team at Freestyle Functional Fitness in #Hawick
As well as offering excellent Obstacle Course Racing training for adults, they provide fantastic out of school fitness sessions for young people.
Let's go on a journey through The Queen's extraordinary reign, with portraits from @NPGLondon 🇬🇧👇
After a busy day of meetings across the #ScottishBorders it was great to enjoy a ☕️ in the Burnfoot Community Hub cafe before my final advice surgery.
Thanks for having me!
Met @simoncoveney at @coe. I was clear that our priority is upholding the Belfast Good Friday Agreement and restoring political stability in Northern Ireland.
We remain open to a negotiated solution but we cannot allow any more drift.
