We launched our manifesto for Glasgow council elections coming up in May. As well as the great policies focussed on making the Council more transparent & actually work for the people of this city, we also have a great calibre of candidates. Proud we have the first ever refugee standing for Council with Roza Salih - also a record number of women & black and minority ethnic candidates. Great team!

Gorgeous view this morning from Crinan - very constructive meeting with Mid Argyll Chambers of Commerce. If you ask me Scotland is the most beautiful country in the world (although I may be biased!)
Delighted Aamer Anwar elected as Rector of Glasgow Uni - not only because he'll be a strong voice for students but equally please the nasty and vile Milo Yiannopolous got absolutely stuffed! Well done Aamer!
FM Nicola Sturgeon's statement on the passing of Martin McGuinness today. Both he and Ian Paisley put their pasts behind them to work towards a better and more peaceful Northern Ireland. Sad to hear of his death and thoughts with his family and friends.

Uplifting SNP Conference this weekend. Best speech I have heard from the First Minister, setting the tone we all need to adopt. We have to understand that many ppl will have anxiety or concerns over holding another Independence referendum - our job is to persuade them with understanding, courtesy and respect. If we do that then Scotland will win her independence and we will no longer be...

Monumental arrogance from the Tory UK Govt who say they will not give Scotland the right to hold an independence referendum even if the Scottish Parliament votes for it next week.

Whether you voted Yes or No to independence what you cannot refute is the right of the Scottish people to determine their own future.

Here is the mandate we sought in 2016, an election we won comprehensively....

Academic study backs up what I found to be the case on the ground in 2014 - Scottish Muslims much more likely to vote Yes to Scottish Independence than want to remain in the UK. Nothing can be taken for granted, we'll work tirelessly for every vote

Too many women in life to mention that have - and continue - to inspire me. Some people say 'every day should be women's day' true - but 2017 and women still face huge struggles, discrimination and abuse the world over. So until equality is realised betwen the genders let's keep reminding ourselves the struggle is ongoing. This brother stands in solidarity with you - Happy International...
