New independence poll putting Yes at 49% & there are 1 in 10 undecided. That is why Unionist politicians are desperate to talk process & avoid the substance of the argument, they know the positive case for Scotland being a normal independent country will beat Project Fear.

I recently met with @WaspiFalkirk ladies, to reiterate my support for the #WASPI women who are still fighting this injustice. It’s disgraceful, that the UK Tory Government continue to deny so many #1950swomen the pension they so rightfully deserve. #NotGoingAway @WASPI_Campaign

The gambling white paper must push for a smart statutory levy on the gambling industry to fund research, education and support.

Nothing less is acceptable.

Who is calling the shots?

The @GOVUK or the gambling industry?

UKG conducted polling into attitudes to the Union. Tommy Sheppard MP has been fighting to make this public.

UKG has been ordered to publish it, but they have appealed. If the court rules in favour, the right to info may be at risk.

This weeks take on events at Westminster covering the UK drift towards being a rogue state, votes and parliamentary questions. Plus updates on the campaign for independence. #Yes #SNP #WhyNotScotland

We enjoyed meeting with @MartynDaySNP this morning to share with him all we have learned about this year’s @sendmyfriend campaign before presenting him with our work and that of the school to take to Westminster! #SendMyFriend #AllMyFriendsNeedTeachers @DeanburnPS 😊😊😊

1️⃣ The Scot Gov spent more on Covid-19, than the funding we received from the UK Gov. That includes £5.2bn on business support, £1.8bn for councils and £5.7bn for health. NOTE: this report only covers funding up to Dec 21 (not the full year of accounts hence the gap).

This week is #LonelinessAwarenessWeek!

If you're feeling lonely, there is help and support available. @Age_UK have a number of resources and can offer information and advice.

☎️ Age UK's Scotland Helpline is available Monday-Friday between 9am and 5pm on 0800 12 44 222.

👏 Spot on from @NicolaSturgeon: "The risk of not being independent is much greater than any risk of being independent.

The very fact of just being independent doesn't magically guarantee success - what it does do is it puts the levers for securing success in your own hands."

As @NicolaSturgeon lays out a compelling case for Indy, Johnson underlines the stark choice by petulantly threatening to remove from us all the basic protections afforded by the European Convention on Human Rights so he can deport asylum seekers to Rwanda #YouYesYet

There is a story doing the news rounds this morning that Sunak has cost the government £11 billion by failing to manage government interest rates properly. But the real story is much worse than that. This is about banks winning at cost to us all, yet again...a thread to explain.

Reacting to our investigation, @MartynDaySNP said the findings were “deeply worrying”.

Ruth London, head of @FuelPovAction, said: “Every year thousands die from cold and damp. Yet the wealthy few are again hoovering up the resources we need for our survival”

"The Tories are trying to force a feeling of helplessness and dependency in Scotland...

"They seek to feed the myth that it's better to allow people like Boris Johnson to be in charge rather than us being accountable for creating our own future" @MichelleThomson #indyref2

“Everybody is fed up of feeling uncared for and simply disregarded”

This #bbcdn audience member says she feels the Conservative government are “continuously proving that they don’t care” and pushing people towards independence.

Just like that. 20 odd seconds for the scrapping of £2Bn Scottish HS2 link. BBC Reporting Scotland has got coverage of these very awkward Tory Govt stories down to a fine art.

2️⃣ The Tory Brexit, rejected by a majority of Scottish voters, has caused food prices to rise by 6%, deepening the cost of living crisis for households.

https://www.independent.co.uk/news/uk/politics/brexit-food-prices-living-costs-b2065985.html?ampP

"It's not just the Prime Minister we have zero confidence in, it's the broken Westminster system that puts a man like him in power"
@Ianblackford_MP giving it to @borisjohnson
#montypython #blackknight #justafleshwound #ticktock #indyref2

A few reasons why Scotland can no longer afford to remain under UK Tory rule:

1️⃣ Under Tory mismanagement, the OECD has warned that the UK will have the worst economic growth of any G20 country bar Russia.

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.

#YouYesYet?

“We are spending £28m on the Jubilee and we have spent £17m of taxpayers’ money subsidising meals for MPs”

On #bbcdn tonight, @NicolaMRoy debates £20m set aside for a referendum and says she thinks Scotland will lose “a lot more” by staying in the union.

10.30pm on @BBCScotland

“When you look at that £20m going in for a referendum… that’s bringing hope to so many”

Olympian @kieronachara says that many people who feel “deflated” and “defeated” by the cost of living and cuts are taking hope from the prospect of a referendum. #bbcdn

🗳️ Latest poll shows that 50% of people in Scotland support Scottish independence.

It was great to meet @MartynDaySNP last week to discuss our campaign to ban the domestic sale and advertising of cruel animal experiences abroad, such as elephant rides. We are delighted to have Martyn’s support and we call on the government to bring in an immediate ban.
