@NicolaSturgeon 👮🏼 We're making sure we pay our police officers properly to reward their vital work.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Last year, officers in Scotland received a 7% pay uplift.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁥󠁮󠁧󠁿🏴󠁧󠁢󠁷󠁬󠁳󠁿 In England and Wales, the majority of police officers received no pay increase at all.

@NicolaSturgeon FM: "Let me turn to issues around pay for police officers.

Negotiations of course are ongoing, but if you look at England and Wales, the lowest starting salary for a police officer is £21,654.

In Scotland, a new police constable starts on £26,737." #FMQs

Good luck to them. But I note that any time an SNP politician even approaches an airport, this lot lose their minds. International engagement is normal and should be so for all parties.

With about 11 hours to go... Sec of State for International Trade @annietrev has pulled out of appearing in front on the @CommonsIntTrade to defend the UK-Austrailia Free Trade Agreement.

Reaction in Canberra will be fascinating. @latikambourke

@ScotTories I'll repeat.

Your Party asked the Scottish people to send the FM a message.

We did.

We demanded an Independence Referendum.

We also sent your Party a message.

We haven't voted for you since 1955.

Do you understand?

#ScottishIndependence2023

Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced plans for a new referendum on leaving the UK, saying it is time to lead Scotland back into the EU as an independent country.

JUST IN: Scotland's First Minister Nicola Sturgeon says her government proposes a new independence referendum be held on 19 October 2023

The question that would be put before voters: "Should Scotland be an independent country?" http://bloom.bg/3y0Kmuf

This is simply incorrect. Statements on Tuesday are normal. All parties incl Lab agreed to move drugs debate to Thursday once it was clear how many amendments had been put forward to legislation this afternoon and how long that would take, meaning the debate would be very late. https://twitter.com/michaeljmarra/status/1541784444591374339

Michael Marra MSP @michaeljmarra

Due to the First Minister’s statement on her referendum bill the debate tonight on Scotland’s drug deaths has been postponed.

👀 Alistair Carmichael hints Lib Dems cd entertain coalition at next elxn w/ Tories if Johnson goes

At present idea not a ‘realistic prospect’, but if Tories do ‘sensible, honourable thing’ & oust Johnson, ‘we cd be presented with a v different political landscape’

@TimesRadio

💂 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.

🧵We already have a #BillofRights: our #HumanRightsAct (explained by Prof Klug).

The Govt’s new Bill is actually a #RightsRemovalBill. It doesn’t introduce new rights; it makes it harder for us to access the ones we have.

Here's some key issues to write to your MP about⤵

🗳️ In 2021, pro-independence parties got more votes than ever, a higher vote share than ever, and an increased majority.

✅ 61% of people in Scotland recognise there is a mandate for #indyref2.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The mandate is clear - and Scotland will have a choice.

BREAKING: First comprehensive study of its kind shows half billion pound value of Scotland’s film and TV industries to the country’s employment and economic prosperity. Screen sector growth now aiming for billion pound success.

Despite trying to keep my ear to the ground there's still loads I missed from the 2014 #IndyRef campaign. This is a corker from Alistair Carmichael, then Secretary of State for Scotland, during the National Farmers Union Scotland debate. HT @RobboCam73

"It’s no coincidence that the very politicians the Human Rights Act holds to account want to see it fatally weakened,” says Amnesty International’s UK Chief Executive Sacha Deshmukh on the government’s new Bill of Rights.

The uncontrolled glee with which the tories talk about the #RailStrikes is rather telling.
This glee is only matched by the utter hypocrisy from the @ScotTories. After screaming blue murder for @scotgov involvement in ASLEF issue, not one of then turned up to ask a question y'day

A new bill sets out a blueprint for establishing a National Care Service for Scotland (NCS), with the aim of ensuring the best possible outcomes for people accessing #care.

Alister Jack caught red handed ramming through English legislation on devolved farming that could further damage Scotland’s exports to EU and with only a day’s notice. No wonder Jack calls Scotland ‘territory’. ⁦@ScotTories⁩

The Tories are buying secrecy with a big shot QC - the man who represented them against the Windrush families, defended their dodgy covid contracts and argued that they could suspend parliament with impunity.

Don’t let them render FOI toothless.
