Thank you SO much to Fiona Stage @BrendanOHaraMP ‘s office and to the lovely staff at Glasgow Passport Office - I now have my passport. NO thanks to HMPO in general, or to their team of unhelpful, outsourced call handlers who make a bad situation 100% worse.

Although in recess, I had to be in Westminster today on important constituency business. Tonight however I managed to secure a ticket to see Cabaret at the Kit Kat Club. Absolutely outstanding from beginning to end and @misslenn performance as Sally Bowles was just magnificent.

A family of two children and four adults were among those taken to safety by the Loch Lomond Rescue Boat and other emergency personnel last night after torrential rain washed out campers' tents.

Can’t wait to see @PaulHeatonSolo and @jamabing and @The_Proclaimers at St.Helens tomorrow. Haven’t seen them perform on the same bill for 36 years, since the legendary (to me it’s legendary) Edinburgh Assembly Rooms gig in 1986 when Craig and Charlie supported The Housemartins.

‘Still’, a brand new song, is available to watch now as a special lyric video. We together with @SandsUK hope to raise awareness for folk who have lost a child, whether by miscarriage, stillbirth or in infancy. Watch the video now at the following link https://youtu.be/y1j_k4XgBfM

Today I hosted a roundtable discussion looking at the future of India’s democracy.

India is at a crisis point, with a growing intolerance of minorities & the weakening of democratic institutions.

Thank you to @amnesty @hrw @CatherineWest1 @BrendanOHaraMP @APPGFoRB for speaking.

The Colombian Truth Commission found that the armed confrontation has produced a serious violation of human rights, especially the right to life and personal integrity. Read here ➡️ its main findings and recommendations https://bit.ly/ExcSummary #hayfuturosihayverdad

Refreshingly frank (and politically devastating) from a Labour MP about her party’s priorities in Scotland:

“Only last week, we (@ScottishLabour) suspended two Labour councillors in Edinburgh because they weren’t prepared to vote for the Tories over the SNP” https://twitter.com/PhantomPower14/status/1546828342317432842

Phantom Power @PhantomPower14

Siobhain McDonagh let’s the cat out the bag. Anas Sarwar pretends to despise Tories when in fact he’s collaborating with them to lock out SNP. @ScottishLabour #politicslive

@BrendanOHaraMP Vice Chair of the #APPG says ‘Christians and Christian leaders have a crucial role in supporting those who are committed to justice and peace, and promoting cross-community harmony in the #HolyLand. I joined the APPG to assist in this vital peace-building work’

.@BrendanOHaraMP, Shadow SNP Spokesperson (Int'l Human Rights & Conflict Resolution) asked @FCDOGovUK a series of questions about YJC Report's findings relating to Iraq (http://bit.ly/3uw9ND1) & what they might do, if anything. Response below.

We're back to Kintyre. This one's from Elspeth MacAllister, horses on Dunaverty Beach, Southend. Isn't it time you took the trip to Kinloch? #booktok #mondaythoughts #heatwaveuk #DCIDaley #TheDeathofRemembrance 🎊🥃🔟 Help us celebrate 10 years!

Johnson 'delivered' Brexit? Brexit has only been delivered in the sense that a flat-pack of furniture is delivered. It hasn’t been assembled yet because it won’t fit through the front door, several of the most important pieces are missing and the instructions are in Russian.

Ian Murray MP on radio demanding people have their say in a GE vote. That would be the 4th in seven years.
He demanded the "People's EU second Vote".
But a Scottish referendum for the people of Scotland....No way. You've had your chips.
Labour still taking the voters for fools.

“No one who has a care for democracy, the rule of law, standards in public life or just simple common decency will regret Johnson’s resignation,” says @BrendanOHaraMP https://thelochsidepress.com/2022/07/07/ohara-calls-for-general-election-after-boris-johnson-resigns/

This morning, speaking for @theSNP I asked the Minister for Defending The Indefensible (aka The Paymaster General, Michael Ellis) when we would get off this Merry-Go-Round of Prime Ministerial lies. Turns out the answer was sooner than I thought.

Yesterday this letter signed by 35 MPs & Lords was sent to @MfaEgypt in support of @trussliz's statement to parliament about her working to secure Alaa’s release.
Today, they're having a bilateral meeting in the UK as Alaa reaches his 95th day of hunger strike #SaveAlaa

Delighted to be kicking off tonight's event on continued religious persecution in #Eritrea with @APPGFoRB, @CSW_UK & @eritrea_focus. Thanks to @BrendanOHaraMP for chairing. 1st speaker is @khatazagondwe reading remarks from @ElsaChyrum summarising human rights situation.

As ⁦@theSNP⁩ spokesperson on Intl Human Rights, I’ll be part of the 2022 Freedom of Religion or Belief Ministerial Conference. My commitment to #FoRB and support for Yazidi people come from knowing @NadiaMuradBasee⁩, the bravest & most inspirational person I’ve ever met

We are delighted that @BrendanOHaraMP will be joining us for launch of our forthcoming Report. He is Chair of the APPG on Yazidis which is cross-party & is @theSNP Spokesperson on International Human Rights. Join him & us, 6 Jul: https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_F6VVrllFTnGxlGRn-raKtQ

Some genius has made a trailer that has Frasier returning as a drama that has been given a gritty reboot! It came up in suggested videos on You Tube and is excellent! I'm also 99% certain that after you watch you'll wish it existed! https://youtu.be/GOoqnhn_6I0

Bute’s last independent Fruit & Veg shop has been given a new lease of life! Allowing Jessmay to finally hang up her scissors and have a well earned retirement, this wonderful family are all set to take on the challenge of running their own small business. #shoplocal #isleofbute

#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!
