The issue of a Scottish independence referendum was settled in last year's Holyrood elections. The parties supporting a referendum won a majority and those that opposed one lost. In a democracy, especially a 'voluntary union' the people should get what they voted for. #indyref2

Glenn Campbell @GlennBBC

“Democracy is not a wheeze”

Constitution secretary @AngusRobertson insists voters will have a choice on Scotland’s future

He thinks the UK government should accept the SNP / Green majority at Holyrood as a mandate for #indyref2

🤩 I am absolutely delighted to see this project receive the unanimous backing of the P&R committee.

📚 Having gone to MHS myself, I know that a new building is badly needed - and @AngusSNP will deliver a modern, accessible building for pupils and the whole community.

🚨 Today, the @theSNP-led Administration secured unanimous backing to proceed with the new Monifieth Learning Campus.

🧵 Commenting, Council Leader @bethcllr said: "This has not been an easy decision today." (1/6)


@StewartHosieSNP tells #BBCNewsnight that only independence can give Scotland “the big levers” to tackle inequality and grow the countries economy.

"There will be a referendum on Scotland's future whether Boris Johnson says yes, or whether he says no"

@theSNP MP @StewartHosieSNP tells #TheNine the Scottish Government "have in their minds" a route to a "legal referendum without a Section 30 order".

🌍 For countries of Scotland's size, independence works.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 With the powers of independence, they built happier, fairer and wealthier societies than the UK - so #WhyNotScotland?

🗳️ That better country is within our grasp, but only you can make it happen.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 @ScotGov has a mandate to hold a referendum on Scottish independence, backed by the democratic will of the people of Scotland.

We are now 25 groups, across 33% of the land mass of Scotland! We may be relatively small in population, but we are big in our commitment to working together for Scottish independence.

NHS staffing in Scotland has increased by nearly a quarter and reached a record high level, the SNP have said

That result is an absolute stinker for Boris Johnson.

❌Worse than John Major in 1995
❌Worse than Theresa May in 2018
❌Worse than Maggie Thatcher (v Heseltine) in 1990

BREAKING: Voters divided 50/50 on independence as Boris Johnson's approval ratings hit record low - new @IpsosScotland poll for @STVNews.

Great closing address from @StewartHosieSNP to the @AIMAberdeen Progress to Yes Conference. The Yes Movement is united, focussed and up for it 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿🇪🇺

Johnson's shameless "defence" of his actions and his determination to "move on" from #SueGray and #Partygate is painful to watch. It has the Tory backbenchers squirming. Surely they can't tolerate this a moment longer.

The Prime Minister has been caught bang to rights over #partygate. He claims to be appalled at what happened! Right now he's wittering on about context. Apparently it's nothing to do with him only management issues! He is quite delusional.

Listening to the Public Order Bill debate. This is an illiberal piece of legislation, it will criminalise legitimate protest, impose sanctions and bans even if no crime has been committed and is far too widely drawn. It's really just red meat to the Tory right.

Deeply important joint US Congress and European Parliament statement. The UK government is trashing its own reputation, playing fast and loose with peace in Northern Ireland. We are not part of the talks but @theSNP strongly supports this joint statement.

Our Official Joint Statement just adopted in Paris at the 84th Inter-Parliamentary Meeting of the US Congress and the European Parliament: (1/2)

👩‍🎓❤️👨‍🎓 #BREAKING: Dundee has been named as the top destination in Scotland for graduates, a major new survey has revealed!

Nicola Sturgeon has more than enough backing for indyref2, according to a new poll

☁️ Cloudy but warm as the next leaflet starts to go out!

🏘 Both myself and @BethCllr have an ambitious plan for Monifieth and Sidlaw - from tackling climate change to empowering our communities and helping with the cost of living.

🗳 #VoteSNP 1 and 2 on May 5th.

A whistle stop tour of Angus to finish off day one of @theSNP bus tour!

Kirriemuir, Monifeith, Arbroath and Montrose - fantastic candidates across the board!


.@theSNP campaign bus tour is about to be underway! 🥳

Keep an eye out in the run up to polling day in twenty days time!!

We’re visiting nine local authorities this weekend alone - tweet if you spot us! #VoteSNP💛

🗳 On May 5, vote SNP 1 and 2 to take Angus forward and to empower local communities - ensuring that no one is left behind.

#AmbitionForAngus #VoteSNP

No level of government has a more direct impact on our daily lives than our local councils.

That is why it's so important you vote for councillors with a track record of delivering change. On 5th May, #VoteSNP

That's me back in from the 2nd @theSNP leaflet run of the day. #ActiveSNP #VoteSNP #AmbitionforAngus Good to get the step count up!


One month out, a (spicy, perhaps eyebrow raising) poll by Survation on behalf of BBS indicates the SNP could win record local election results, against transfer-unfriendly Conservatives.

Full analysis:

Impressive turnout at the @AUOBNOW March in #Arbroath today. Pleased to be marching and speaking on such a day - especially as the route took us through the environs of the Abbey where #TheDeclarationofArbroath was signed 702 years ago .

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 Only @theSNP has real ambition for Angus - and a positive vision for Monifieth and Sidlaw.

🗳 By electing myself and @BethCllr, our ward will get hard-working, compassionate representation as we build for the future.

🗓 #VoteSNP 1 and 2 on May 5th.

The #Tory Government cannot hide behind commercial confidentiality to avoid taking action to stop P&O sacking hundreds of loyal seafarers.

Proudest moment of my career. We launched Adult Disability Payment today in Scotland. What an amazing job by the Social Security Teams - Programme, Policy and Agency #collaboration at its best! Dignity, fairness and respect at the heart of this benefit.

1/ The @scotgov ‘super-sponsor’ scheme for 🇺🇦 is now open. If you are seeking refuge from the war, 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 wants to welcome you - by selecting “Scottish Government” on the UK visa application site at we hope to offer you a quick & easy route here.

Waiting to speak in @theSNP debate on the the cost of living crisis and we are subject to inane comments from Labour's Ian Murray about taxing Irn Bru. This is why Labour are unelectable. #voteSNP

🔥 In just over 20 seconds, @StephenFlynnSNP demolishes the UK government's record in the North East of Scotland.

❌ Failed to deliver carbon capture and storage
❌ Failed to match @scotgov's £500m Just Transition Fund
❌ Failed to tackle the sky-high energy transmission charges

The people of #Dundee and #Scotland stand willing to offer refugees from #Ukraine sanctuary from Putin's evil war. The UK Government must remove the barriers and let them come.

Listening to @theSNP 's @OwenThompson making a strong case against the latest #UK #PowerGrab this time over professional qualifications. The Tories determination to ignore important devolved powers is always wrong. #voteSNP #indyref2
