Miriam Brett

Orkney and Shetland

Miriam is a 25 year old Shetlander, was born and bred in the isles, living between Bressay and Waas. After graduating with a degree in international politics, Miriam worked in progressive policy research, before taking up the post as the Senior Economic Advisor to the SNP Westminster Group.

"It was a privilege to grow up in such a unique and beautiful community, and I cannot think of a greater honour than representing my home constituency in parliament.

People across these isles have needlessly been subjected to harmful, counterproductive cuts under both the Liberal Democrat - Conservative coalition and the current UK Government. We need only to look at the food bank usage across these isles to see the damage that this has caused. The SNP is the only opposition to have consistently voted against austerity, and I will use my voice at Westminster to unapologetically reject these cuts.

The harsh realities of a hard Tory Brexit pose a very real threat to our communities, from the need to protect EU citizens living in our isles, to the need to ensure that local businesses do not face hardship. The SNP has demonstrated time and time again that we are an effective opposition to the Tories, and will continue to ensure that communities across Scotland have their voice heard.

If elected, I promise to represent the issues facing our community in Westminster, and to work tirelessly to serve every one of my constituents."

Mairi McAllan

Phone number: 0141 424 1174

Mairi McAllan

Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale

Mairi was brought up in Biggar and attended school there before earning her degree in Scots law from Glasgow University. During this time, Mairi also lived in Belgium studying various aspects of European law at the University of Ghent.

Thereafter she worked in politics before returning to education to complete her Diploma in Professional Legal Practice for which she received merit and the Law Society of Scotland award in Human Rights. 

She is a trainee commercial solicitor and when not working, helps her partner, Iain run his beef and sheep farm in the Crawick Valley near Sanquhar, Dumfriesshire where they live. Mairi is also a singer and when time permits, she plays in a folk band. 

An active community campaigner and a passionate advocate for this part of rural Scotland, Mairi stood for the SNP on the South of Scotland regional list in the 2016 Scottish Parliamentary Election. 

Mairi is determined to play her part in safeguarding Scotland from what she sees as the long term economic and social dislocation promised by Theresa May’s hard Brexit and the chilling prospect of an unfettered Tory government hellbent on further austerity. She believes that in Scotland, only the SNP can provide an effective opposition to this. 

"‘I’m offering the people of Dumfriesshire, Clydesdale and Tweeddale a strong voice and a clear choice. 

A choice between a future in which I ensure their voices are heard loud and clear in Westminster, and one where crucial decisions are made, behind closed doors, by a Tory government with its own dangerous agenda.

This is a wonderful part of Scotland and I love living here. I would relish the opportunity to help our home reach its true potential and look forward to meeting as many people as possible on the campaign trail, over the next few weeks."

In 2003 she moved to Oxfam where she worked as a policy adviser and campaigns manager for over six years in a role that took her to many parts of the world.

Paul Monaghan

Caithness, Sutherland & Easter Ross

Dr Paul Monaghan lives in Ross-Shire with Stephanie and his daughter Sian. He was born in Montrose before moving to Inverness with his family when he was 2 years old. For the last 30 years he has lived in Contin.

Paul was educated at Inverness Royal Academy and at the University of Stirling where he gained a first class honours degree in Psychology and Sociology and a Ph.D. in Social Policy.

For his first degree he researched and reported on the sources of stress and the coping strategies deployed among the police officers and support staff of Northern Constabulary. For his Ph.D., which he undertook having won a prestigious Collaborative Award in Science and Engineering from the Economic and Social Research Council, he considered the role of Scotland’s largest voluntary organisation in the development and implementation of social policy, in Scotland, during the post-war period. Paul is a Graduate Member of the British Psychological Society and a Fellow of the Institute of Leadership and Management.

As Director of the Highland Homeless Trust, I led and managed the delivery of specialist housing and social support services to vulnerable people across Highland. This role provided him with first-hand experience of the challenges faced by some of the most marginalised and deprived individuals in Scotland.

Paul is also very active in supporting a number of other voluntary organisations and partnerships including UHI North Highland College based in Thurso, which he joined in 2007 and where he is Chair of the Audit and Risk Management Committee. Paul also supported the Inverness MS Therapy Centre as a director and in recent years founded two charitable groups.

The first of these is ‘Food for Families’ based in Invergordon that provides food and basic living supplies to individuals and families that are struggling to make ends meet as a direct consequence of the austerity agenda imposed on the people of Scotland by the UK Government. The second is the ‘North Highland College Foundation’ based in Wick. The Foundation holds cash reserves of £1.25 million and was founded him and two colleagues to facilitate access to further and higher education across Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross.

Paul is a Member of the SSE Fairburn Windfarm Community Fund that distributes funding to local groups, projects and initiatives in and around Ross-Shire.

Within the Scottish National Party, which he first joined in 1994, Paul holds the positions of Organiser, Wester Ross Branch, and Convener, Highland Council Liaison Committee. He also founded ‘Yes Highland’ that campaigned successfully across Highland for a Yes vote in the referendum held on 18 September 2014.

John McNally

Falkirk

John McNally is a very popular Councillor as well as one of the most successful local Councillors for the SNP.

It was in the 2005 Herbertshire by-election, where John McNally, a local Denny Barber, secured Labour’s safest seat with a 24% swing to the SNP, becoming Denny’s first ever SNP Councillor.

Since then the SNP has topped the poll in the Denny and Banknock Ward in the 2007 and 2011 Scottish Parliamentary Elections and the 2007 and 2012 local elections.

It is vital the SNP win the Falkirk Constituency and John McNally who secured over 30% of the vote, up from 21%, in the Falkirk Constituency during the 2010 Westminster Election, a Scottish high swing of 8.9% from Labour to the SNP, has the chance to finish what he started and secure the seat for the SNP.

Ronnie Cowan

Inverclyde

Greenock is where I belong, where I currently live and where I campaign.

My fore­fathers were Clydeside joiners, mill­workers and weavers. The exception was my father who was a distinguished goalkeeper for Morton and Scotland. I attended school in Inverclyde and my 3 children have grown up in the area. From Port Glasgow to the outlying villages, I know this area well and understand its needs.

The SNP has been my party since the age of 16. My proudest political achievement to date has been my leadership of YES Inverclyde, a campaign which, against the odds, came within 86 votes of delivering a Yes vote in a unionist stronghold.

I have been running my own IT company for the last twelve years and have a lifetime's experience in this field. I have worked with major companies all over the UK and Ireland, giving me a perspective on how Inverclyde performs in comparison to other places.
I am accustomed to working as part of a team and providing leadership.

Together with my political experience, I am exactly at the right stage of my life to serve as an MP.

In 2015, Kirsty Blackman became the UK Parliament member for the Aberdeen North Constituency having been elected to parliament with an impressive 56.4% of the vote. 

Kirsty is the SNP Spokesperson on the House of Lords and is interested in a range of constitutional topics. She is also a member of the SNP’s Economy team and has led for the SNP on parts of the annual Finance Bill.  Kirsty has regularly stressed the need for the UK Government to recognise the effect the oil price fall has had on Aberdeen and so provide more support to the oil and gas sector to secure more jobs now and in the future. 

In Aberdeen, Kirsty has met with hundreds of constituents and organisations and has tried hard to be as accessible as possible. Her office on John Street is busy as Kirsty and her staff have worked hard to publicise the help they can offer.  

In 2016, Kirsty won Patchwork Foundation’s SNP Newcomer of the year award, recognising her work in engaging with communities that have traditionally been hard for politicians to reach. Kirsty does all she can to encourage young people and those from communities who are underrepresented in elected politics to get involved.

Mhairi Black

Paisley & Renfrewshire South

In 2011 I joined the SNP after hearing there would be a referendum on Scottish independence.

From this, I began to regularly stand on Paisley High Street handing out leaflets for the Yes campaign. Slowly I began to build more confidence and began to canvass and chap people’s doors. As time went on and momentum began to build I found that there was a desire everywhere you looked for more knowledge. I began to attend more public meetings and devote more and more time to the campaign.

One night, my lecturer at the time emailed me about an hour before a public meeting asking if I could speak for the Yes campaign as someone else had pulled out. I jumped at the opportunity and I’m glad to say I received a warm response and began to get invited to more and more public meetings.

One night I had the pleasure of speaking alongside Jim Sillars, who afterwards invited me to join him on the Margo Mobile campaign to travel throughout the working class communities of Scotland, spreading the message of independence.

After the referendum result, I was heartened by the number of local party members who urged me to put my name forward to become the candidate for Paisley and Renfrewshire South. I was thereafter elected by the local party members to become the candidate and to eventually go on to win the election.

Subsequently, I have now found myself travelling to Westminster each week as the MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire South.
