Back at work and shocked to see a pro-independence party is trying to make Scotland independent, the audacity of trying to deliver what they ran on 😠

Hi, my name is Anum Qaisar.

In 2014, I was planning to vote no. I was an active member of the Labour Party.

On 18th September 2014, I voted yes.

Independence isn’t about @theSNP. It’s not about @NicolaSturgeon.

It’s about Scotland.

Get involved:

💂 On #ArmedForcesDay, we pay tribute to all who serve and thank them for their hard work and sacrifice.

🤝 We owe an enormous debt of gratitude to our armed forces, veterans and their families.

If it was about babies, they’d have free maternal health care and not be charged for labour.

If it was about mothers, they’d have paid maternity leave.

Solidarity ❤️

Sources suggested her husband [the Prime Minister] was not necessarily looking for a paid role for her but “something to keep her busy”.

…she could have volunteered at a foodbank and seen the first-hand impact of the Tory cost of living crisis?

Last week I got to meet Attlee, @CommonsSpeaker’s cat 🥺

I’ve completely and utterly fallen in love - the cutest and fluffiest wee kitten 💕

Does anyone know if and where I can access all the 2019 election leaflets (from different political parties) for different constituencies across the four nations?

🥳 Having fun at the Airdrie Workman’s Social Club celebrating 20 years of Hope for Autism.

🎉 Hope for Autism are a fantastic group based in Airdrie, and do fab work across the North Lanarkshire area.

🙌 This afternoon I was chapping doors and speaking to business owners in Plains.

📣 Please get in contact if you have any concerns that you’d like to raise with me.

🌎 Today I asked the UK Government if they’d commit to creating an independent statutory body to conduct gender-just impact assessments in trade deals.

🤷‍♀️ The answer I received was complete waffle.

🙌 Gender-just trade must be a key priority for the UK Government.

FCC environment is hosting a planning consultation this evening between 4-7pm over plans to develop Airdriehill Quarry into a holiday park.

I encourage my constituents - particularly those in Plains - to share views at an interactive text chat session at:

UK Trade Minister, Mike Freer, seemed surprised that the cancelling the carbon capture and storage scheme, in Peterhead, another 2014 Referendum promise dumped, has had an effect on the development, and export potential, of clean hydrogen 🤷‍♂️

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 My wonderful office manager has become Council Leader so there’s an opportunity to join my team.

👇 Deadline this Friday, details in link:

Scotland is being held back by Westminster.

Independence is coming - and you can be part of @theSNP campaign.


"My duty is to the people of Scotland, it's not to Boris Johnson or any Tory MP."

First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says "we must forge a way forward, if necessary, without a Section 30 order", as the UK government has "no respect for democracy".

Sitting in House of Commons with @ronniecowan @MartinJDocherty + @LSRPlaid listening to @NicolaSturgeon’s announcement on a series called of papers on Scottish Independence.

It’s time for Scotland to become independent - for a fairer, wealthier, greener Scotland 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿


Currently sitting in the Palace of Westminster, eating yoghurt for breakfast and waiting for the First Ministers announcement on a series of new papers setting out the case for Scottish Independence 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿

Scottish Government @scotgov

First Minister @NicolaSturgeon will give a press conference from Bute House this morning.

Watch live here @scotgov from 11am.

It was a pleasure to welcome @theSNP Council Leader for North Lanarkshire Council @JJLindenSNP, Adam and Angela to Westminster today.

We chatted up with local issues, and it was nice to catch up after our historic @theSNP win in North Lanarkshire.

I’m calling on the UK Government to ratify the #IstanbulConvention without reservations to protect ALL women from violence. They must not cut off migrant women from this lifeline.


Scotland didn't vote for Boris, the majority of his own Scottish MPs want him gone yet he will continue as PM. Don't tell me the Union works for Scotland, it is utterly broken.


Breaking: I understand Scottish Tory John Lamont MP has just resigned as PPS to Foreign Secretary to vote against the Prime Minister tonight. @itvnews

I wonder if Douglas Ross will be participating in the no confidence vote in Westminster today for his MP job, if he’ll be in Holyrood for his MSP job, or out refereeing for his football job.

Thank you @AirdrieBaptist for inviting me to the induction of Rev. David Fraser last night.

It was a pleasure to join a beautiful service + meet the congregation.

I welcomed Rev. Fraser, and his wife Zoe, to Airdrie and I wish them well. I look forward to visiting again soon.

It’s a sunny day so my morning consisted of running around the house trying to find enough dark coloured clothing for a full wash - Ma Mary Quinn from Derry Girls raised me right 🙌

We are running a community fridge in Shotts and our surrounding villages. We have reduced food waste by 100% while saving families money. These are some of the meals they make. People can cook, they just need access to it.

🚨 Every year, @ScotGov has to spend hundreds of millions of pounds mitigating cruel Westminster policies like the Bedroom Tax, the Rape Clause, and Universal Credit cuts - policies that hurt the poorest in our society.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland cannot afford to be under Westminster control.

📣 My constituency office will be closed on Thursday 2nd June and Friday 3rd June for the bank holiday weekend.

🗓 We will reopen Monday 6th June.

📩 Constituent enquiries emailed to will be dealt with at the earliest opportunity.

📺 Today I visited STV and met with Simon (Chief Executive), Bobby (Managing Director - Broadcast) + Linda (Head of News and Current Affairs).

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 It was great to discuss all things Scottish TV.

🌧 Also lived out my childhood fascination of (pretending to) report the weather!
