Another Conservative broken promise means the Government is implementing a real terms cut in defence spending just at a time when we face the biggest threat in Europe since the Second World War. Our armed forces deserve better.

We need to focus on the issues affecting people everyday not an expensive referendum that the majority of people in Scotland don’t want.

This would be a wonderful way to express our support and show solidarity to the people of Ukraine.

Tragically, this says it all. They’re not taking their eye off the ball, they were never looking at it in the first place. Everything is secondary to division, including the welfare of the most vulnerable. https://twitter.com/michaeljmarra/status/1541784444591374339

Michael Marra MSP @michaeljmarra

Due to the First Minister’s statement on her referendum bill the debate tonight on Scotland’s drug deaths has been postponed.

We could work together over the next 18 months to not only change, but to save people's lives. The First Minister's priorities are not the priorities of Scotland, but of her party.

@MarkLClifford talking about the collapse of free press in #HongKong over the last 3 years due to #China's interference and crackdown on the city. On a panel with @finnlau_cd and @cajardineMP @thecfh @HJS_Org

One of my earliest memories is singing along to the #Beatles. Let it Be expresses my own deepest emotions. But #Glastonbury2022 - different class @PaulMcCartney different class

It is such a relief to see the full return of these events. An Edinburgh summer at its unmatchable best.

My heart breaks for all the women and girls in the USA who will now have no choice over their own bodies and futures. Liberty , freedom of choice and human rights are all now under threat #RoevWade

"So many people who voted Conservative all their lives are angry, upset and disappointed in this government.

The farmers and pensioners feel let down, families are squeezed.

All these things contributed to this historic victory today."

A swing of 29.9% puts the Tiverton & Honiton result among the best ever by-election swings in British political history.

The people of Devon have sent a clear message: It's time for Boris Johnson to go.

"This Chancellor has hiked taxes time and time again, refusing to slash them to help with the cost of living emergency.

Even when we know slashing VAT is a sure-fire way to help families while keeping inflation under control."

"This is like a determined effort to waste as much taxpayers’ money as possible. Each day they trash the British tradition of treating people with respect.

"It’s time they did the decent thing and just gave up on this farce of a policy."

'If he's not interested in actually trying to help, then he should get out the way and let someone who actually is do the job'

No matter how hard I try I know I cannot appreciate what it is to flee with only what you can carry. Leave your life behind. I'm taking time today to think about those who do. #WorldRefugeeDay

Happy #WorldRefugeeDay! 💛

When they have no choice but to flee, refugees can only carry so much. But what refugees bring — generations of dreams, experiences, traditions— is so much more.

RT this video—narrated by refugees themselves—if you stand to make #RefugeesWelcome.

"There have been assertions that this time we will have a respectful debate, but they were no sooner made than Angus Robertson MSP was questioning whether the views of elected MSPs from other parties mattered."

The Government could do something to resolve this situation yet Ministers haven’t met with the RMT for well over a month.

I am Scottish& British and proud of it. When the SNP decry the UK they belittle who I am. #stillno #notoindyref #UK #SCOTLAND https://www.scotsman.com/news/opinion/columnists/for-many-of-us-these-constant-attacks-on-westminster-show-a-lack-of-respect-for-who-we-are-christine-jardine-3736372

On June 19, 1865 the Emancipation Proclamation was announced in Texas, 2 years after slavery was made illegal, marking the end of slavery in the U.S.

#Juneteenth celebrates freedom, equality, & the commitment to progress.

And it is now a federal holiday in the U.S. 👏
