Textbook example of a Government Minister not answering my question during Joanna Cherry's Urgent Question on the Continuity Bill. Westminster insisting the Scottish and Welsh Governments are subservient to them on devolved matters. That's why the Scottish government had to pass the Continuity Bill. It wouldn't be needed if the Tories were prepared to work in partnership. Watch it here...

I asked the Minister if the government would require the Electoral Commission to disclose donations for parties in Northern Ireland from before 2015. This follows allegations of dark money from the Constitutional Research Council, which is linked to the Scottish Tories, to the DUP. As usual, no straight answer.   Cabinet Office Questions 28th March 2018 ...

I pressed the UK Government on the situation in Afrin. The FCO needs to stand up to Erdogan and defend Kurdish people now under attack in Afrin.  ...

It's still not clear whether the Secretary of State has abandoned the idea of getting consent of the Scottish Parliament but it's very clear he's out of the loop.  ...

The Scottish Government is already giving EU citizens the right to vote in Scottish Parliament elections. At today's Cabinet Office questions I asked the UK Government to extend the right to vote to all those legally living here. Cabinet Office Questions - 21st Feb 18   ...

Another UK Government Minister fails to answer the question they're asked. Today it was the turn of the Minister for Northern Ireland. NI Questions - 7th Feb 2018 ...

Given the numerous, and pretty serious, incidents in Edinburgh East on Bonfire Night I was very happy to take part in the Westminster Hall debate on an e-petition relating to fireworks.
