Brexit: securing the best possible deal for Scotland

Scotland has benefited from membership of the European Union for decades, and I believe – as I have for all my political life – that EU membership was and remains the best option for Scotland.

A prosperous Scotland with equal opportunities for everyone, no matter their background

Today we return to the Scottish Parliament for the beginning of a new term. It has not exactly been the quiet recess many will have hoped for after a busy election period, with the repercussions of a vote to leave the EU, a new and increasingly right wing UK Tory government and the continued squabbling of the Labour party to contend with.
