Twitter Web App : STV Scotland Tonight presenter John MacKay just referred to supporters of independence as 'the nationalists' in a debate about the BBC. This has to stop. Supporters of Scottish independence support independence, not nationalism. Leave nationalism to the Tories & the far-right

Twitter Web App : Once more the House of Lords has defeated the government, this time on the utterly ridiculous protest laws.

I hope those demanding an elected chamber are taking note — this would not have happened in a whipped HoL with a Tory majority.

Twitter Web App : So the cunning plan to get Johnson off the hook is to send warships out to patrol the channel, let the pandemic run amok and weaken the BBC.
Because those things will appease Tory MPs.
That, my friends, shows where we are as a nation.

Twitter for iPhone : What in the utter hells bells is going on are we really attacking a minister for not being able to work fourteen days straight ?? Get away with the lot of you suggesting she’s somehow in the wrong. Imagine trying to encourage big companies to behave well then this pish comes up

Twitter for iPhone : Scandalous revealation from the Financial Times that employees of British Gas had their pensions invested in the Israeli spy company NSO (famous for journalist hacking Pegasus spyware).

The story was released ten hours ago and no other British paper has covered it.

Twitter Web App : RE THE OFFSHORE WIND NEWS TODAY. THEY ARE LEASES, NOT SALES. WHEN THE TURBINES ARE IN PLACE, RENT WILL BE PAID FOR THEM AND AN AGREED % OF THE GENERATED INCOME PAID TO SG. IGNORE THE WHINING FROM THE ALIBABAS.

Twitter Web App : From my viewpoint as Scottish nationalist UK wasted Scotland's opportunities upon oil discovery and squandered an economic resource carelessly.
We should take care not to repeat that foolishness when new energy resources are utilised in the future.

Twitter Web App : Beth Rigby on Sky News just reported she now has a second senior source inside No. 10 who backs Cummings' account, that Johnson was warned about the party he claims he knew nothing of and didn't realise was a party. This means PM flat-out lied to Parliament (and to his own MPs).

Twitter Web App : Pro-UK campaign 2014 offered all kinds of hazy/fuzzy financial incentives/benefits in order to stay.
Offer Scotland people something concrete and tangibly defined - independence support will become a tidal wave.
