📣 “Ignore her”.
👇🏼 Liz Truss, the frontrunner to be the next Prime Minister, says what she really thinks about Scotland’s democracy to the cheers and applause of Tory members.
👇 Liz Truss has made crystal clear the partnership of equals Scotland was promised in 2014 was a sham.
❌ Firing cheap shots to grab headlines is straight out of the Trump playbook and reveals the contempt Westminster has for the democratic choices people in Scotland make.
👉 Wales' First Minister agrees there is a mandate for #indyref2.
🥀 It's time for Starmer and Sarwar to stop denying democracy.
Delighted to have signed an Early Day Motion (EDM) tabled by my Dundee West colleague. @ChrisLawSNP, on the Summer (Bash) Streets Festival which showcased Dundee's proud history as the world capital of comics.
🏴 @theSNP is to make application for intervention in Supreme Court independence referendum case, after unanimous agreement was made at today’s NEC.
This is it? This is the choice?
Come on #Scotland, we can do so much better than this. #Indyref2023
📺 🏴 Tomorrow I will publish the second in the Building a New Scotland series of papers, refreshing the case for independence. This one focuses on democracy and democratic renewal, and could not be more timely. Watch from 11am on @scotgov channel #indyref2
These are the people Labour are collaborating with and enabling in councils throughout Scotland. #voteSNP #Indyref2023
Johnson's on his way out of Downing Street, but he wasn't our only problem. It's time for us to up our game and get Scotland out from under Westminster control. #Indyref2023
Johnson should be out today.such a damaging and divisive character should not be permitted to wield power for another day, let alone months.
Boris Johnson will resign as Conservative leader today, continuing as UK prime minister until autumn, the BBC understands https://bbc.in/3OOzRS8
How long does the UK have to go on being held hostage to Tory infighting & regicide reducing all politics to Tory internal dramas & court politics? Something rotten in the heart of Toryism & UK politics. Parts of this union: Scotland & Northern Ireland have other options.
There's not a #Tory MP at #PMQs who doesn't look like they'd rather be anywhere else.
At this rate, there'll be no Government left. What an absolute shambles.
Minister Victoria Atkins has resigned, citing the three Ps: Paterson, partygate and Pincher
Another minister gone. This one is significant.
With deep regret I am resigning from the government.
I will not be doing media interviews regarding this.
And another one bites the dust.
I have today offered my resignation from the Government & look forward to supporting @conservatives & campaigning for #Worcester from the backbenches, it has been a privilege to work to support our brilliant schools
And another #Tory Minister has resigned.
With great sadness and regret, I have this morning tendered my resignation to the Prime Minister after I accepted and repeated assurances on Monday to the media which have now been found to be inaccurate.
I wish my successor well - it is the best job in government.

Labour turns its back on the EU, the customs union,the single market. Labour turns its back on economic opportunity, shutting the door on opportunities for our citizens.

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 https://twitter.com/GlennBBC/status/1540254213871177731
“Democracy is not a wheeze”

@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?

🏴 @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
Boris Johnson has survived a motion of no confidence vote with 211 votes for him and 148 against him. #Noconfidencevote
That result is an absolute stinker for Boris Johnson.

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. https://twitter.com/RepBrendanBoyle/status/1528376355225747456

Scotland is stuck. Excluding independents etc, leave the UK (SNP & Green) parties poll 45.6% Stay in UK (Scot Lab, Tory and LD) parties poll 54.4% Almost exactly the 2014 referendum. Can we just park this and prioritise education recovery, economic growth and social cohesion. 🏴
