🚨 The UK government's policy of sending asylum seekers to Rwanda is abhorrent and inhumane - and it's not in Scotland's name.

❌ Westminster is utterly broken. Let's build a better, welcoming, compassionate system with independence.

🚨 Boris Johnson’s ethics advisor has just quit.

❌ Boris Johnnson has now ditched ethics rules from the ministerial code and lost his ethics chief.

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland can do so much better than this. We can build a greener, fairer, better Scotland with independence.

The figures do speak from themselves, @BorisJohnson. Nations like Denmark, Norway, Iceland and Ireland have:

πŸ‘‰ Greater income equality
πŸ‘‰ Lower poverty rates
πŸ‘‰ Higher productivity

If these countries can do it, #WhyNotScotland? Because we are being held back by Westminster.

'Isn't it the case, Prime Minister, that Scotland can't afford to stay trapped in the failing Westminster system?' asks SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford, raising concerns about the economy and the threat of a trade war with the EU.

🌍Not a single one has chosen to go back.

πŸ“’ With independence, we can build a fairer, wealthier and more equal Scotland. That is the prize.

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland deserves the very best, now and for the generations to come, only with the full powers of independence can we secure that future.

🌍 For countries of Scotland's size, independence works.

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With the powers of independence, they built happier, fairer and wealthier societies than the UK - so #WhyNotScotland?

Happy Lanimers evry'budy!
Congratulations Queen Caitlin and Lord Cornet Derek McGuiness.
So proud of Lanark, you were awesome. Enjoy the rest of the festivities! @LanarkLanimers

Views are being sought on two strategic plans that will be key to the services that are delivered across South Lanarkshire. More than 3,300 local people have already taken part in conversations that have led to the creation of a draft new Council Plan and Community Plan.

πŸ“£ @BrendanOHaraMP: "Scotland deserves a better democracy than the charade that is currently being foisted upon us by Westminster."

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With independence, we will always get the governments we vote for - not Boris Johnson and the Tories.

πŸ—³οΈ Scotland will have that choice.

πŸ”₯ @Ianblackford_MP eviscerates Boris Johnson after over 40% of Tory MPs vote no confidence in him.

"For Boris Johnson, truth and reality are strangers. The simple fact is, he does not have the support the people of these islands. He should be an ex-Prime Minister."

If you want to see Scotland get the politicians we vote for and the strongest economic recovery, the best way is independence in Europe. Come and be part of it 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿πŸ‡ͺπŸ‡Ί https://www.snp.org/join/

That result is surely the worst of all worlds for the Tories. But much more importantly: at a time of huge challenge, it saddles the UK with an utterly lame duck PM. And for Scotland, it just underlines the democratic deficit - only 2 of 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 59 MPs have confidence in the PM. https://twitter.com/jonsopel/status/1533902346543054850

Jon Sopel @jonsopel

That is a BIG vote against the prime-minister. Anyone who says this over is kidding themselves

🌈 Happy #PrideMonth from all of us at the SNP.

πŸ’› This month, and all year round, let's celebrate the LGBTQ+ community and fight for a more inclusive society that always embraces diversity.

🚨 Boris Johnson must answer questions on the ministerial code after he was fined over #Partygate, UK government ethics adviser has said.

πŸ‘‡ #ICYMI Boris Johnson just changed the ministerial code - allowing ministers to break the rules without resigning.

πŸ“£ The Commissioner for Fair Access hailed @scotgov's higher education policies as an "unambiguous success".

πŸŽ“ We have abolished tuition fees, invested record sums in student support, and record numbers of Scottish students from deprived areas now enrol at university.

According to the Commissioner for Fair Access, the @scotgov approach to widening access to university has been an β€œunambiguous success”.
As a result, Scotland now leads the UK. https://www.gov.scot/news/scotland-leads-uk-on-university-students-from-deprived-areas/

πŸ“ˆ Foreign direct investment in Scotland significantly outpaced the UK and Europe in 2021, an @EYNews survey has revealed.

πŸ’Ό While Tories party, @ScotGov is getting on with the day job and delivering for Scotland.

🚨 Boris Johnson has changed the ministerial code - allowing ministers to break the rules without resigning - while he is currently under investigation for breaking the ministerial code.

Businesses like @rsagroup are leading the way with progressive employment & wellbeing policies for parents affected by miscarriage ensuring that parents are offered paid leave & support.
I hope others will follow their example:

I am appalled to hear the truly appalling findings #suegreyreport into lockdown parties at Downing Street.
While my constituents and followed the rules his government set in order to protect lives, the Prime Minister partied as if everything was normal and then lied about it.

The SNP @theSNP

Take responsibility for your law-breaking actions.

@BorisJohnson, resign. #PartyGate

The #SueGrayReport lays bare the scale of rule breaking that @BorisJohnson presided over. Rules that he lied to parliament were followed at all times. A culture of drinking and debauchery in No10, while the rest of us stayed home. His only option should be to resign #PMQs

🚨 While people followed the rules and stayed at home while those nearest and dearest to them were dying, Boris Johnson was surrounded by drink, toasting to a party.

❌ Boris Johnson must resign or be removed from power

This is unimaginably horrendous. Whats it going to take for the UK Gov to act - UKG has the powers over energy regulation, the budgetary powers to substantially increase funding & the social security powers to help people BUT Tory Ministers sit on their hands as people struggle. https://twitter.com/BBCBreaking/status/1529065520128983040

πŸ³οΈβ€πŸŒˆβ€οΈ An overwhelming majority in the General Assembly in favour of allowing ministers to conduct same-sex marriages.

Grateful to be able to visit Hamilton's Manda Centre, they provide vital support to people affected by trauma, loss & crisis. The Covid-19 pandemic has created a higher demand for their services and I will continue to work with them to ensure their vital work is supported.

πŸ”΄ πŸ”΅ 🟠 Today, Labour with Tory & Lib Dems, have denied the people of South Lanarkshire their choice by forming a backroom deal to take over the council.

South Lanarkshire voted for the SNP - but the unionist parties have formed an administration without the largest party.

So the people of South Lanarkshire voted for an @theSNP administration but Labour do a deal with Tories to take control. What a disgrace.

I was delighted to visit Bothwell Library last week with @AngelaCrawley30 to meet with some of the team from Bothwell Futures.

I'm really excited about their plans to create a new community hub and social space in the library while continuing a book borrowing service.

πŸ”Ž An unelected Tory Lord claims there's no mandate for #indyref2.

David Cameron used 36.9% as a mandate for an EU referendum.
Boris Johnson used 43.6% to plough ahead with a hard Brexit.

βœ… The SNP won 47.7% of the constituency vote - a clear mandate for a referendum. #bbcdn

πŸ“ˆ Higher food prices
πŸ“ˆ Higher energy prices
πŸ“‰ Shrinking economy
πŸ›‘ Staff shortages
πŸ’· Β£1200 cost per person

All of that is the price of Brexit that Scotland never voted for - and that's now supported by Keir Starmer's and Anas Sarwar's Labour. #bbcdn

https://www.snp.org/real-cost-of-brexit/

πŸ“£ @NicolaSturgeon calls on the UK Tory Government to take action on the cost-of-living crisis:

βœ‚οΈ Cut VAT from energy bills
πŸ’· More direct support for low-income households
🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Follow @ScotGov's lead and increase social security benefits by 6% - rather than the UK's meagre 3.1%.

πŸ‘Ž This #QueensSpeech simply is not good enough.

πŸ“’ @Ianblackford_MP: β€œPeople across Scotland are being forced to pay a heavy price for the cost of living with Westminster. The only way to protect our interests and households is to become an independent country.”

Today's #QueenSpeech was delivered on the back of a Tory cost of living crisis. It was delivered after another rejection of the Tories by Scotland. It was delivered with denial of democracy that the SNP has the mandate to hold a Ref next year. Time for things to change #IndyRef2
