To commemorate the decision of the Scottish people to remain in the UK 5 years ago, please enter the 'Parcel O' Rogues'.
A gallery of #SNP's huge number of criminals, convicts, the accused and their many odious fellow travellers.

Who better to open it?
First, take a stroll around the Sturgeon Room to remind us how she happily cosies up to the lowest of low.

Here she is with the convicted double-rapist, #SNP activist Brian Gillies.
Next, the accused. Ms Sturgeon was so close to her friend and mentor, the ex First Minister Alex Salmond, more of whom later. The political romance seems to have stalled of late with charges of sexual assault and attempted rape.

The piece is titled #NippyKnew, in a gilt frame.

1) We did some #Brexit related collection during Q1 and have been streaming it solidly since the start of Q2.
2) Our #Brexit collection is multifaceted; these are the accounts that appeared just for the main stream with a few key topic words. 1.6M in total.
3) Among those 1.6M there are 28k with #MAGA in their profiles.

Remainers, #FBPE, Bregretters. WE NEED HELP. PLEASE RT

I'm going to tell a story that is disturbing to YOUR world view

It is sufficiently annoying that some may prefer to block than read. I beg you to hear me out

We do not have very long.
YOU are being used to enable Brexit
3 years ago, even if you disagree, the EURef was won by 17.4m people. Some say it was unclear.

BULL SHIT
The promise was UNAMBIGUOUS

Take back control of our laws, money and borders. Same trade.

Now, deal or no deal, gives us all FAR LESS control of all 3 and trade Hell.
I'll take a risk. Understand this is a METAPHOR not a Recommendation, I don't wish you to unfollow. If you get it, please help those who don't
🙏OMM🙏

Today is #StopTheCoup but in a different world REMAINERS are on the streets demanding LEAVE VOTERS get what they were promised

So, yesterday's anger over @NicolaSturgeon and @S_A_Somerville betrayal of trans people over #GRAReform has crystallised into white-hot fury

Yet again we've seen another Government ignore the voices of the trans community in favour of cis voices who don't have the first...

1/n
clue what it's like to be trans and unable to gain easy access to the basic human right of legal recognition via a simple, permissive process

The claim was made that 60% of people supported a self-declaration system for obtaining a GRC, but this is false

2/n
Trans respondents overwhelming supported (from memory >90%) a self-declaration model and, as we are the only people able to obtain a GRC, our voices should have been given weight. Instead the @theSNP decided that cisgender voices should, for some unknown reason, have...

Have you heard of #Hotelling’s Law? In a two party system, it says that you get most votes by minimising the political distance between the parties. It’s worked well in the past, but it’s about to bring an end to both #Labour and the #Tory party. 1/n

Hotelling’s law worked really well for Tony #Blair. #Thatcher had moved the Tory party to the right, so #NewLabour had an opportunity to increase its vote share by also moving rightwards. 2/n
Politics had shifted. Both parties held broadly similar policies. Blair’s political stance, although to the left of Thatcher’s, was much further right than any Labour leader previously (or since). Labour was able to capture ground that the Tories had left unguarded. 3/n

A #Brexit extension is “almost inevitable”
- Nicola Sturgeon to me earlier @FRANCE24

Scottish First Minister wants Labour’s Corbyn to
“get off the Brexit fence & put his weight behind [...] something that would break the deadlock”
#Scotland #SNP #F24
2/ Sturgeon on Theresa May:

“she should change her approach... 1st thing she should do is request an extension to #Article50

“My preference then would be...to go back to the people in another referendum- bcs people have so much more information now than in 2016”#Brexit #F24
3/
Nicola Sturgeon accuses both Theresa May & Jeremy Corbyn of
“probably trying to run the clock down as much as [each other] in all this.”

1. A short story of #Brexit in four acts. Act 1) in 2010 Coalition comes to power and presses on with dramatic #austerity, wrecking the UK's social compact... causing massive economic harm...leading to 2015 General Election
2.... in which Cameron promised an #EUref, while secretly speculating on another hung parliament with #LibDems blocking such a referendum theguardian.com/world/2019/jan… Yet, Act 2) lots of #austerity disgruntled #LibDems & 2010 non-voters, along with some Cons voters switched to..
3. #UKIP in 2015 General Election. #LibDems got wiped out, #Cons gained 27 seats from LibDems (out 28 overall seat gain), while #Labour lost massively to #SNP -- allowing Cameron to go alone, being pushed by #Brexiteers in #Conservative party to go ahead with #EUref.

Here's a short thread (20 tweets Ha!) on why I ended up in Keith, Moray from #Norwich in Norfolk & why I wouldn't live in any other nation. This is about about how #Scotland became my home because of love & how this led to support for independence & #SNPOrganiser for Keith 1/20
For context - towards the end of 2014 I came out of a mentally & emotionally exhausting long distance relationship w/ an American, I had just started a degree in Computer Science @uniofeastanglia & found myself content in my own company & 'aloneness' .. 2/20
Scrolling my @tumblr blog, I came across a blog that I found interesting. in 1 post Mr McDonald had written about jumping some stairs in his flat, smashing his head on a door frame, and coming too on his floor w/ blood pouring out his skull. I thought it was funny. 3/20

Which party has the oldest average age of MPs? THREAD
First off, we must thank-you all. We launched a poll on Monday expecting maybe 500 responses maximum. Instead we had a whopping three-thousand-two-hundred-and-thirty votes on our Twitter poll.

That’s ridiculous.
We asked you which party you thought had the oldest average age of MPs.

Most of you, 66%, thought it was the @Conservatives, then the @LibDems (15%), then @UKLabour (14%), with the @theSNP coming in last with (5%).

I bet the SNP are feeling fairly youthful right about now.
