One of the darkest days for women’s rights in my lifetime. Obviously the immediate consequences will be suffered by women in the US - but this will embolden anti-abortion & anti-women forces in other countries too. Solidarity doesn’t feel enough right now - but it is necessary.

The @netzero_tc and @PortofAberdeen have a huge role to play in our energy transition so fortunate to spend time at both today.

Good discussions with @StephenSheal and @BobSanguinetti - and happy to again back calls for a Green Freeport.

"For too long his government has syphoned off profits from Scotland’s resources while failing to invest in our energy sector and Net Zero future." 👇

📣 Today I'm publishing a paper from the @SNPDefence team outlining some recommendations for the NATO strategic concept. Focused on state, society and system, we make recommendations to enhance European security. Read our report here:

14 politicians across the political divide unite to back North East Scotland Green Freeport. This is an extraordinary opportunity to create 32,000 jobs, add £8.5bn economic value and reposition the region as the Net Zero Capital of Europe. #NESGF

“If we are serious about the challenges of the future in terms of energy security and net zero, then Aberdeen and the wider North East must be at the forefront of investment.”

The Tories haven’t won an election in Scotland since 1955 yet continue to try and dictate the terms of our democracy.

That’s the scandal.

Many independent European nations are more successful than the UK.

So why not Scotland?

It *was* a lovely afternoon so took to the doors in Garthdee before a visit to the Energy Transition Institute @RobertGordonUni to discuss their latest energy workforce publication -

£11,000,000,000. Lost.

And by the same Chancellor who took £20 a week away from folk on Universal Credit.

‘Don’t condescend me like that’ 🔥 WATCH as SNP MP Stephen Flynn bites back after Tory MP Peter Bone said Flynn didn’t ‘understand’ the Rwanda policy during Politics Live

“It’s emblematic of a UK government which is intent on virtue signalling to a heartless and xenophobic minority within the Tory backbenches.”

@StephenFlynnSNP puts the UK government’s Rwanda policy to task. 👇🏻

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.

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford says for weeks he has been met with a "wall of noise" from Tory MPs when asking for Boris Johnson to step down as PM but 'all this time 41% have been cheering me on'

Thanks to @StephenFlynnSNP for attending our report launch in Parliament this afternoon and meeting with physiologists, including @aberdeenuni's @Prof_DerekScott who chaired the project.

Read our new report here:

15,000 people in Scotland were sanctioned by the Secretary of State last year for 'rule breaking'.

On that basis, surely she'll sanction Boris tonight too?

I have supported Boris Johnson for 15 years, for the London Mayoralty and for PM. Very sadly, I have written to him to say I can no longer do so, for the reasons set out below.

In 2021/22 over two million people in the United Kingdom used a foodbank.

This afternoon I made a donation to @inchgarthcc in support of their efforts to feed those in need.

Let’s not forget what really matters.

Wish the folk who are outraged about £20m for a referendum were as vocal about the Scottish Government having to spend close to £600m a year just to mitigate decisions taken at Westminster.
