On this day in June 2000 I became an MP. It was the first time I remember going to Westminster, let alone Parliament. I was young, slim and full of optimism. 22 years on I’m a little older and bigger, but I still have hope for our country’s future.
ALAN CUMMING ‘If anything has changed since 2014, it would be that it’s more obvious now that Scotland can do better by itself and that Westminster doesn’t have Scotland’s best interests at heart.’ #Indyref2 https://t.co/0Og4ZnQjTB
The smell of success: A bloodhound named Trumpet won the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show, marking the first time the breed has ever snared U.S. dogdom’s most coveted best in show prize. https://t.co/j4RJyI1qBp
Trumpet the bloodhound beat a French bulldog, a German shepherd, a Maltese, an English setter, a Samoyed and a Lakeland terrier to win Best in Show at the 146th Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show. https://t.co/jFjWeiIWKz
A floppy-eared bloodhound named Trumpet was awarded Best in Show at the Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show finale Wednesday night, the first of his breed to take the competition’s top award. https://t.co/DXRiMj195A
RMT official on Radio Scotland talking about the Network Rail strike just said a "rogue Westminster Govt is telling Scotland and Wales what to do". Somehow we don't think this will be used as a headline by BBC Scotland. He's attacking the wrong Govt.
Now is the time to bring about the end of the Cost of Union crisis. The Westminster system serves only the greed of the rich, not the needs of the many. There is no possible UK/Westminster solution to the systemically corrupt UK/Westminster state. Rise up, and Dissolve the Union! https://t.co/IwUtS7tC4k
“A Yes majority will send a clear message to the Westminster establishment that working class people have had enough of the savage Con-Dem austerity cuts - cuts which, incredibly, Labour support.”
The RMT in Scotland balloted its members and backed independence in 2014. https://t.co/0kNFKkEuTH

Last night, me and an All-Star cast of journalism heavyweights put down our notebooks and opened our hearts to the dog show.
If you get a chance, relive some of our journey. It turns out, Super Teams *can* win ... and so can bloodhounds. https://t.co/yrWKnegRLK
Shout out to everyone in UK politics still in Westminster rather than in Kigali, Wakefield, Tiverton & Honiton or Glastonbury. It's a bit 'Burns and Smithers run the nuclear plant' here today. https://t.co/KXlrodViaq
@amcarmichaelMP You support an abusive thieving abomination of a racist bigoted aggressive undemocratic fraudulent elitist institution called Westminster England, so you are in no position to lecture anybody.
The SNP (years later) then took the cowardly decision to hide behind the Westminster authorities instead of investigating and dealing with the issues as a party - eg via the appointment of an independent third party. https://t.co/feV1CDzk2K
