#WeaponsofWar As nations meet in Vienna for the crucial talks on nuclear weapons, UN Sec General says, ‘Sexual violence in conflict is a despicable tactic of war & repression that destroys lives, terrorises populations & fractures communities.’ Both devastate. Pray for victims.

.@churchmoderator has accused the UK Government of "dishonouring God" by continuing to put up barriers against vulnerable people fleeing conflict.

This morning in my role as @theSNP Cabinet Office spokesperson, I asked the Paymaster General about publishing the resignation letter of Lord Geidt. I think the pressure of being sent out to defend the Prime Minister is taking its toll, because his response was quite something!

Lord Geidt's resignation letter is finally released. He is devastating in how he views Boris Johnson, his lack of character & morality. His language - "odious", "deliberate", "regret", "an affront", "I can have no part in this" is totally damning. https://twitter.com/skynewsniall/status/1537386016306257920

No parent should have to choose between being with their premature or sick baby in neonatal care and having to go back to work to earn a living.

We can and must ensure parents of babies in neonatal care get the paid leave and support they need.

This morning, at some isolated spot, private contractors are strapping a tiny group of terrified and desperate men and women, perhaps children, into restraining devices, the more easily to port them aboard an airplane bound for a country most have never been to in East Africa.

I haven't seen a more thorough dismantling of gov't policy than this interview by @skynewsniall to @trussliz on the Northern Ireland protocol in a long while. Truss has not a single answer, of course, but it's satisfying to see the right questions asked. Deserves to go viral. ~AA

I’m representing one of the last people still on the Rwanda flight today and I must say it’s disturbing to see the Home Office briefing the BBC in this misleading & unpleasant way. First of all, my client hasn’t “lost repeatedly in court” - today is his 1st & probably only >

This government have done some pretty awful things... way too many to list here, but even by their standards, the immorality of this Rwanda deportation plan beggars belief. Today as @theSNP Intl Human Rights spokesperson I asked how they planned to evaluate its success or lack of

Archbishop Nolan today went to Dungavel to show solidarity with those asylum seekers locked inside and to express his horror at UK Govt’s scheme to deport asylum seekers to Rwanda.

With the weans at a packed Ingliston Big Top eagerly awaiting the arrival of my Christmas present… James, live in concert.

Archbishop Nolan: “The policy of forcibly deporting to Rwanda people who have come to this country in search of safety and security is morally wrong.
"It is an offence against human dignity and against all the best traditions of welcome of this country.”

Here's me trying to explain to MPs this week why the Rwanda plan might amount to constructive and chain refoulement in breach of Article 33 of the Refugee Convention. https://parliamentlive.tv/event/index/bdecf3e4-d39c-4f53-8a23-ead469022e9f

Work commitments may have prevented me attending the ceremony at Dunoon Grammar School this morning but I did not let the announcement that @dunoongs had been shortlisted in the World's Best Schools Prizes @BestSchoolPrize 2022 go unnoticed at Westminster. Huge congratulations.

I've read & spoken to @FigandPen about the unmitigated disaster that Brexit has been for her business. Today, speaking for @theSNP I challenged Brexit Opportunities Minister to say how long she and thousands of others must wait for his promised "broad, sunlit uplands" to arrive
