Of all the potential future Tory leaders when Johnson eventually goes you would have to conclude it won’t be Raab. #pmqs
Still the hate, still the puerile name calling. They want to be part of a mainstream campaign but they just can’t help themselves. It’s up to them. The only way back for Alba is to stop the hate and the characterisation of us as ‘traitors’ and ‘sell outs’.
Independence means we will never have the likes of Boris Johnson exercising power over our nation again. Independence means we will always secure the Government that WE vote for.
This is how Boris Johnson responded to Nicola Sturgeon's announcement
In the last indyref there were only 6 SNP MPs. All of us learned to walk tall and stand up to them in the very heartland of their power. This time round there are significantly more of us.... https://youtu.be/cDN3C76RXZM
This time round we know what 'No' looks like. It looks like PM Boris Johnson, being taken out of the EU against our will, the attacks on our democracy, Scotland disrespected daily. It looks like this sorry state of affairs being the best we can ever be. #Indyref2023
If this rubbish from Douglas Ross is the best they've got they are in real trouble. #Indyref2023
What a brave, remarkable statement from the First Minister. After all the nonsense, the naysayers, the belligerent opponents, we will do this. Democracy must win.
There we go. If we are legally imprisoned in their union we will fight the next General Election on a platform that 'Scotland should be an independent country'. This is it.
That's quite a masterstroke. Referring the bill directly to the Supreme Court bypasses all the unionist legal challenges.
We are having a referendum on the 19th of October 2023. We are going to win it.
It was an excellent session with the Cabinet Secretary yesterday. Transcript will be available soon. https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/national/20239163.forbes-presses-uk-government-action-astronomical-energy-price-rises/?ref=twtrec
I know the expectation for 'Now Scotland' was low but this is appalling. Almost the exact opposite of what the Yes movement is and aspires to be. We can't go into a campaign burdened with this nonsense this time.
Introducing Now Scotland's Summer of Disobedience July-September
A campaign of summer activity to really step up the push for Independence
We want all of you to get involved
More details coming soon!

Absolutely shocking. All the Russian apologists and equivalence-ers this is why we support Ukraine and so utterly condemn the Russians.
Russian missiles just hit a crowded shopping center in Kremenchuk, while over a 1,000 civilians were inside. The possible number of casualties is unimaginable
Simply appalling. The toxic debate surrounding trans people does have consequences. 🏳️⚧️
Still think @jeremycorbyn and I are the only 2 MPs to have have appeared on the Pyramid stage #Glastonbury
The Scottish Tories will be absolutely delighted with this news……. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-politics-61939938

What a fantastic concert for Sara’s birthday. ABC, 40 years of the Lexicon of Love with the South Bank Sinfonia conducted by Anne Dudley. Every instrument was mic’d filling Glasgow Concert Hall. With @SOH12 @ABCFRY
It’s ‘the birthday’ today and we’re hitting Glasgow. We’ll reveal where we’re going later….. With birthday girl @SOH12 🎂🎁
Great meeting with Perth businessman and all round good guy Pete Chan. Discussing his ‘bag o chips’ weekly walks and support for @AndysmanclubSco
Partnership working at its best thank you for your support @PeteWishart and Pete Chan always up for a photo 😂👌❤️ https://www.facebook.com/101129058618762/posts/pfbid09RgcXvynT9KEp4p5GG5UkZnTE3QoQYAJz6iTNf3XJaJ3NsmZUnwoh3jHA5HtxKmxl/?d=n
Visiting the reopened Bothy in Perth with Graham Urquhart from the Scotsman Group and General manager Belinda Swan. Great to have this fantastic eatery and bar back.
Wait till he hears my views on the internal democracy in the Church of England….. https://www.thenational.scot/news/20231995.lord-suggests-england-get-vote-2023-scottish-independence-referendum/?ref=twtrec
Bet Raab’s glad that’s over. Still not listening, still belligerent, still backing Johnson. They’re toast….. #r4today
Those Tory by-election defeats were as predictable as they were certain to happen. Johnson is simply a vote losing disaster for them now. Going to be an interesting couple of days….
Business Questions on their ‘Brexit day’. ‘This is a Prime Minister with the ethics of a polecat’. Think you’ll like it…..
Business Questions on now. You know you want to……
That was awful. He even got ‘Arthur Scargill’ in. #PMQs
31 years ago today. Our most iconic and unforgettable gig. Here we are aristocracy bashing... "I'm not too hot on Dukes or Earls or Graces. But I love respect and exalted places". Tear down these walls they keep raising for you. https://youtu.be/-tHtEq1AqI8
For worse read ‘much’ worse….https://www.theguardian.com/politics/2022/jun/22/brexit-is-making-cost-of-living-crisis-worse-new-study-claims?CMP=share_btn_tw
A bit from today’s ‘ethics debate’. “This is a Prime Minister who has the ethics of Caligula overseeing a Government that has the morals of the last days of the Borgias”. I think you’ll like it……
From @PeteWishart: "He's a weird combination of privilege, narcissism, nastiness, and naiveté all wrapped up in that bumbling facade that he has carefully concocted... If there's one PM in need of ethical advice and the assistance of a moral compass, it is surely this PM." ~AA
I will be leading for the @theSNP on the ‘ethics’ debate. It’s almost designed for one of my contributions. Tune in if you want to see the fun. #ethics #themoralityoftheBorgias
I need your help to defend freedom of information and win the release of the UK Government's secret union polls.
Today at 3pm the @CommonsScotAffs will be hearing from the Secretary of State for Scotland @ScotSecofState

Just another Brexit party happy to deny this generation the right to freely live, work and love across a continent. Well done Labour. Johnson is proud of you today. https://www.thetimes.co.uk/article/kier-starmer-to-rule-out-return-of-free-movement-with-europe-gdd0976gm
Bowie. For all the fun that followed. ‘Jock, I’m only dancing’ ‘life on deep fried mars bars’ the man who fell to Perth’ etc. I was there when Kate Moss uttered his famous words. Indyref banter at its best….
Who were your favourite 'celebrity' endorsements/appeals in indyref1? It's for a thing.
In Perthshire we’re never quite sure whether they constantly put Murdo up to help us or hinder us. Agent Fraser, you’re work is done. Come into the office in Glasgow Road for your debrief…..
🤷♂️ A bizarre clip of Murdo Fraser revealing some of the many reasons why the Tories at Westminster don’t want Scotland to become independent.
With the starting gun fired on the next indyref we’re out campaigning in Alyth. With councillor Grant Stewart and @JohnSwinney
The start of her birthday ‘week’. At our favourite restaurant in the world. The one and only @SOH12 @craigcmillar
‘“Could you imagine any other successful, resource rich country being asked to forego all its own internal democracy to be run by this morally bankrupt failed state. They’d be laughed all the way out of the United Nations.”
Business Questions today. It’s all going to be about getting Scotland out of there morally bankrupt failed state. Think you’ll like it……
Anas Sarwar's anti-democratic position of opposing #indyref2 has him at odds with:
👉 Scotland's trade union movement
👉 Majority of people in his Glasgow constituency
👉 A third of Scottish Labour members
He can oppose independence, but he can't keep opposing democracy. #FMQs
Wow. That was some putting down of Anas Sarwar. Thoroughly deserved though. #fmqs
Business Questions on now. Back in my place and you don’t want to miss it…..
'Pete Wishart called the PM Chewbacca without the fur'.....
STAR WARS & PARLIAMENT ⭐️🌌🎬
Inspired by Keir Starmer calling Boris Johnson Jabba the Hutt, here's how Star Wars has been mentioned in Parliament. 🧵
Starmer was simply appalling. I think he’s turning into Neil Kinnock. #pmqs
There's a simple solution to this. simply agree to what the Scottish people voted for at the last Scottish election. This 'democracy denial' isn't going to work for the Tories.
Would you boycott a 'wildcat' independence referendum?
The EU quite rightly furious with the UK breaking international law and treaties. Fortress Johnson on its way to becoming a pariah state.
NEW: "Let's call a spade a spade. This is illegal," says the European Commission's Maros Sefcovic
The #EU confirms it's launching legal action against the #UK in response to the govt's plans to scrap part of the protocol
