Pleasure to pop along and say Happy 100th Birthday to my constituent Sarah Friel! Four generations in this pic. I asked Sarah her secret to a long life, she said 'I was born happy, just be happy' Pretty good advice!

Check out my latest column on Brexit and my visit to Revive MS, which has recently relocated to my constituency. It was great to visit the Revive MS centre which provides a vast range of services and support to people with multiple sclerosis.I was impressed by the good work of the centre staff - and even got to join in a drama class!

Transport Scotland are working with partners to ensure we're prepared for Storm Doris coming on Thursday. She'll bring snow across Scotland and parts of the North will also be hit by high winds. If travelling then plan your journey ahead - likely to be some element of travel disruption

On the day the Scottish Government has announced it will fund training for refugee doctors to be able to practice here, the UK Govt has announced they are going back on their pledge to take in lone refugee children! Utterly shameful.

8 years ago today Bashir Ahmad passed away. I have never met a more kind, more gentle and warm hearted man in my life. He came here as an immigrant but became the most patriotic Scot I've met. Sadly missed but not forgotten.
V enjoyable Pollok SNP Burns supper last night. Thanks to the wonderful speakers for their excellent contributions & also to our great team of activists for putting the night together. Every penny raised will go to help the SNP hopefully boot Labour out of Glasgow City Chambers!

I am incredibly pleased that a £5.12 million improvement fund has been proposed for the Barratt Flats in Priesthill. This is a welcome investment, after a long journey for the local community. Congratulations to the residents, community members and Councillors who have continually campaigned for the Barratt Flats.

Looking forward to seeing the results of the improvements.
Simply awful news. Thoughts with Mr & Mrs Aslam's children, family and friends.
