What makes a freeport green? The Scottish Government, in working with the UK Government, has promoting #decarbonisation and a just transition to a #netzero economy as a policy objective for bringing #freeports to Scotland.
Not even the pretext of a union of equals.
Of course we already knew that didn’t we ?
‘Will you be apologising to the First Minister of Scotland when you see her?
Liz Truss: No I won’t.’
Audience cheers. Kay Burley laughs.
Keep it up, Tories!
A crisis the @GOVUK created all on their own. #Johnson, #Sunak, #Truss #Brexit. #GrimReality says @thetimes

“Professor Mike Barnes, welcomed the findings.
“In other words, a full spectrum product is better than an isolated product as an anticonvulsant.”
He added: “It is good to see the scientific data confirming what many doctors and patients knew already.”

“We need to move away from the ECHR definition of asylum.. it is far too broad” says Rishi Sunak
What the f*** is “far too broad” about the right to life & prohibition of torture, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment!
& now he’s even using the term “lefty lawyers!”
87% of people with a gambling addiction spent unplanned money on gambling because of advertising.

It’s a very strange but far too common ( in Uk Gov ) mindset that thinks saying something in a committed fashion makes it acceptable. Sounding plausible seems to be the aim and to hell with Selflessness Integrity Objectivity Accountability Openness Honesty and Leadership.
Liz Truss says she backed the Remain campaign as she was “concerned” about the disruption Brexit would cause but is now a brexiteer because “disruption didn’t happen”
Heaven help us all
Introducing the Man On! Wellbeing Cup.🏆

As part of #ClydeGreenFreeport, Greenock deep ocean terminal would double its capacity, with more than £16 million of investment and support decarbonisation across sea and modal shifts.
Interesting to hear about the many challenges and opportunities facing Glasgow Airport @GLA_Airport and that includes the @ClydeGreenFP in conjunction with @PeelPorts and @MossendPark . There must be a green freeport located on the west of Scotland.
It was a pleasure to welcome @ronniecowan to the airport today to talk through our continued recovery and the @ClydeGreenFP freeport bid we're proud to be part of. #GLA #Backthebid

I have written to the retailers and frankly they are running a cartel in #inverclyde .
If one retailer cut its price to match neighbouring areas they all would.
What are you going to do about this @Tesco @Morrisons @bp_UK ?
Are petrol prices much higher in Inverclyde than they are in Glasgow?

Supporting the @Lionesses at Wembley was made even more brilliant by a fantastic supportive crowd and no gambling ads in the FA-owned stadium.
Football has shown it can succeed without gambling sponsorship ⚽️
The most important campaign of our lives so far 🏴
So sad to see parents suffer due to the lack of prescribing in both the NHS and private sector.

Mesmerising evening at @thebeaconarts watching Alun Cumming challenge the biscuit tin image of Robert Burns.
And still my motto is: I dare!
Leaflet drops in Larkfield, Braeside and the upper Port today.
Happy to help @InverclydeYes .
Great conversations on the doors and with folk going about their daily business.
The feeling on the streets is something has to change.
Talking about behaviour - what about the mess that local fishermen leave behind? what is that all about?
The irony - polluting the very waters you catch fish
When will additional laws emerge to protect our environment and deal once and for all with this behaviour?

I managed to pop by @Inverclydeshed today to see Bruce and thank him for all of his help and support with our school garden this year. “Thank you Bruce! We enjoyed spending time outside and learning how to plant and harvest our crops!”

The @fergusmccreadie trio was a great addition to the @thebeaconarts jazz club. 😎
A big fan of @fergusmccreadie and last night at @thebeaconarts in Greenock the trio were in scintillating form. McCreadie’s music reflects the landscape of Scotland and Ridge from his latest Mercury nominated album, Forest Floor is truly wonderful. @mercuryprize

This simple step by the @GOVUK would enable Safe Drug Consumption Facilities staffed by trained medical personnel to open across the U.K.
Why would anyone not want that?
More than 90 organisations and 240 individuals have signed an open letter, calling on the
Government to amend the Misuse of Drugs Regulations 2001, which would make it easier to establish
pilot Overdose Prevention Centres. A simple step. Why wouldn't they?
