Brilliant to see @ClydebankFC profiled today by the always very informative and engaging
@The_Sam_North for his Footy Adventures YouTube Channel!

Scotland didn’t vote for this. #YouYesYet…

The reality of Brexit is biting hard. Poor people are suffering most – and now everyone can see it…

Thank you to @WDCAB1 Chair Irene and Manager Joe for the opportunity to catch up today to hear about the new community outreach service & the impact of the cost of living crisis on the communities of West Dunbartonshire

Text WAD to 70480 to donate Β£3 to Waverley Care. Texts cost Β£3 + standard network rate.

Thank you @JennyGilruth, Minister for Transport in @scotgov, for a good discussion on decarbonization & #sustainable transport solutions. Congratulations on St. Andrew’s day!

Thanks to @MartinJDocherty for inviting @scvotweet & @VolScotland to discuss with 🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 MPs the impact of the cost of living crisis on voluntary organisations. Looking forward to continuing the conversation #runningcostscrisis

Thank you to Sarah from @VolScotland with Paul of @scvotweet for updating MPs on the impact of the cost of living crisis on our #voluntary sector and #Scotlands #volunteers…

Our Policy Officer had a great discussion at Westminster about the cost of living crisis and volunteering, including barriers such as travel costs and DWP guidance around volunteering. Thanks so much to @MartinJDocherty for arranging this discussion.

Ian Blackford has a pop at Keir Starmer during PMQs.

Nonetheless it was good to meet with Mick Lynch & @RMTunion. RMT @networkrail members in Scotland haven’t had a pay rise in over 2 years, which is completely unacceptable.
