Reports today suggest the UK Govt risk missing the NATO target of spending 2 percent of GDP on defence. This is an issue @DaveDooganSNP raised with and asked the Secretary of State for Defence to comment on last month 👇🏽

I said earlier the debate on the Northern Ireland Protocol would be grim, and it really is. With a few Tory exceptions (and all credit to them) the UK government continues to blame everyone but themselves for the consequences of their own actions. Appalling.

"I do not welcome this bill," says former prime minister Theresa May on the Northern Ireland Protocol Bill

She says the bill is not "legal under international law"

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Evidence from the Scottish Election Study shows that a clear majority of Scottish voters recognise the mandate for a referendum delivered by last year’s election.

Scotland is consistently poorly served by the dysfunctional MOD - with Independence our Armed Forces will advance Scotland's values and ambition.

👇 It’s time for the Cabinet to recognise that the public resoundingly distrust the UK Government to conduct good Foreign Policy.

Absolutely outstanding opportunity for Scottish supply chains which demands an integration of ambition from producers, hauliers and government. 👏🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 https://news.stv.tv/east-central/sole-ferry-link-between-scotland-and-continental-europe-set-to-resume-in-2023#Echobox=1655404322

🗣one by one, the Tories, Labour & Lib Dems stood up to condemn any idea of an independence referendum.

🏛The naked irony is that they are in opposition & the independence-supporting majority is in government.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿We are compelled by our manifesto promise to deliver a referendum.

🥀 Ignoring the democratic will of the people of Scotland is not a progressive position.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Scotland has the right to choose a better, fairer and greener future with independence. Not be relegated to branch office status.

📈 The latest statistics show the Scottish economy is recovering strongly from the challenges of Covid.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With a lower unemployment rate than England, the Scottish economy under @theSNP is resilient, despite continuing challenges from UK and international factors.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Independent countries of similar size to Scotland are wealthier, happier and fairer than the UK - so why not an independent Scotland?

📣 @NicolaSturgeon: "That is the prize - building a better nation, now and for the future."

Scotland has many friends internationally and they're watching our constitutional future closely. 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🌍

Listening and watching as @NicolaSturgeon announces a series of papers to argue the case for a second #independence referendum in Scotland

In the House of Commons Tea Room - a historical day at the beginning of the end for the Union as we know it

🚨 FM @NicolaSturgeon has published the first paper of the ‘Building a New Scotland’ series, which outline our vision of independence for Scotland.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 A fairer, wealthier and more progressive nation - only possible with independence.

📖 Read it here: https://www.gov.scot/newscotland/

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 @ScotGov has a mandate to hold a referendum on Scottish independence, backed by the democratic will of the people of Scotland.

The crisis of a populist government which is now deeply unpopular is manifest is horrendous policies like this which treats human beings like cattle.

Tories pretending this is normal, its anything but.

Timely reminder that:

A) the SNP unseated more Tories in Scotland than labour managed across the UK in 2019

B) the SNP are the main challenger in every Scottish Tory seat

C) why did you break your no deals pledge after the local elections teaming up with the tories

It's been great to catch up with @AboutDementiaSc 's @DouglasSloan10 at the Alzheimer's Disease International global conference the past couple of days. #ADI2022

@PeteKrykant_OPC @PaulJSweeney @JeffSmithetc @LabourDrugRef @labourlewis Sorry Peter but this is wrong mate.

You, me and Paul were all in the same room when @AlexStevensKent @Drug_Science explained that secondary legislation could change the law to add folk to category of ‘exempt from prosecution’.

I would love to think it was simpler but it’s not.

👀 From a hard Brexit to Boris Johnson's law-breaking, Tory actions are making the case for Scottish independence.

👉🏼 Watch this #bbcdn audience member's response to a Tory MSP.

🚨 FM @NicolaSturgeon will publish the first in a series of papers outlining our vision of an independent Scotland next week.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 We will seek to build the better, fairer, nation that is only possible with independence.

🤝 Join us in making that national ambition a reality.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Through the actions of @theSNP Government, we're taking Scotland to independence.

🗳 Tory sleaze and incompetence have shown beyond doubt that the only way to build a better future is to be in the driving seat of our own destiny.
