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.

πŸͺ– 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

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!

βœ‚οΈ 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

πŸ›£ Good transport links are vital for prosperity in the #ScottishBorders

πŸš†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

Tory MP @John2Win criticises SNP hunt for source that leaked Ian Blackford recording to Daily Mail

β€œIt 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 β€œnot only failed” victim of Patrick Grady, but also β€œmade it less likely that future victims come forward”

β€œThat is a disgrace. It is unforgivable”

🏎 A really magnificent setting for the @SJYSClassic at Thirlestane Castle near Lauder today.

🏁 The event runs today and tomorrow - there’s so much to see and do.

πŸͺ– @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/

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.

πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈPeople's finances are under strain, and public services in Scotland are worse than ever

πŸ“ˆLet'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

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.

πŸ‘Έ What an amazing morning in Kelso to celebrate the #PlatinumJubilee

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Thousands in the crowd to mark this momentous occasion.

πŸ’™ And Kelso and the #ScottishBorders looking at their best.

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ It was an immense honour to attend the #PlatinumJubilee #TroopingTheColour in London yesterday.

πŸ’™ It was incredible to join so many thousands of people from across the UK and the world celebrate this momentous occasion.

πŸ‘Έ God save the Queen.

πŸ‘‘ Congratulations to Her Majesty The Queen on her #PlatinumJubilee

πŸ‡¬πŸ‡§ Despite the turmoil + political change over the last 70 years, The Queen has remained a steadfast figure in our lives.

πŸ‘ 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

πŸ€¦β€β™‚οΈ 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

πŸš‚ 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! πŸŽ‰

While the SNP’s Minister for Transport is chauffeured around in taxpayer-funded limos, Scotland is facing a Black Monday of transport chaos.

πŸ›€οΈ1/3 rail services axed
β›”Miles of roadworks causing gridlock on major routes
⛴️Ongoing ferry crisis for islanders

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.

After a busy day of meetings across the #ScottishBorders it was great to enjoy a β˜•οΈ 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.
