Anas Sarwar has hit out at First Minister, Nicola Sturgeon, saying that 'she lied' about the closure of the Children's Ward at the Royal Alexandra Hospital in Paisley.
Health Minister, Shona Robison, has approved NHS Greater Glasgow and Clyde's plans to transfer inpatient and day case paediatric patients from the Paisley hospital to the Royal Hospital for Children in Glasgow.
Corri, my name is Natasha Clark, I'm a reporter from The Sun. I hope you're well. We're doing a story on information IPSA have released to us today that claims you owe them £111.00 which has not been settled with them - just reaching out to see if you'd like to comment on this or explain why this has not yet been paid. All the best, Natasha
INEOS Shale and its co-venture partner Reach have announced today that they have lodged a petition for a judicial review of the recent decision by the Scottish Government to “effectively ban” onshore unconventional oil and gas extraction in Scotland by introducing a new planning policy of "no support."
Kirsty Blackman: “I don’t think most folk in their daily lives give two hoots about whether Scotland is a member of the union. The constitutional issues are not the biggest concern for an awful lot of people and, in fact, I very rarely talk about Scottish independence in the chamber, because I talk about things that matter to the people of Aberdeen."
It is being reported that the SNP are thinking of moving away from just a membership model and will introduce a 'registered supporter' model - in a similar fashion used by Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party.
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @PeterKGeoghegan I think that tweet also needs quote marks around the words "revelations" and "Defence Secretary".
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland Some idiot on Sky News just said that to prevent tooth decay you should only eat salt'n'vinegar crisps "with a meal".
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland I know it's a slow news month, but I find myself perplexed that the Judean People's Front For Independence has suddenly decided it's important to say that the Highland Clearances weren't so bad.
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @JMcKiernanPJ @PiersPd0930 Ross Thomson is gay? Fair enough, but that's the first I've ever heard of it. So maybe not all THAT open.
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @RhonaMorris3 @j2502ackie @No431onthelist @Zarkwan Just don't waste your breath on these dum-dums. Hopeless cases.
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @JMcKiernanPJ @PiersPd0930 @RossThomson_MP Then stop being silly. It's a word with multiple meanings and nobody was using the one that means "homosexual".
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @j2502ackie @RhonaMorris3 @No431onthelist @Zarkwan (1) no it doesn't, (2) I've got some news about LITERALLY EVERY OTHER COUNTRY ON THE PLANET that's going to blow your socks off.
Wings Over Scotland @WingsScotland @JMcKiernanPJ @PiersPd0930 @RossThomson_MP Do you think it's homophobic when people say "I'm going out to get a packet of fags"?

Alison Thewliss @alisonthewliss @ukhomeoffice As if to prove the point, a number of cases at both my surgeries today where @ukhomeoffice incompetence is making people’s lives a misery. People left waiting in limbo for asylum claims, entrepreneurial visas and confirmation of right to work.

Elaine C Smith has brought the Independence movement into disrepute again. Speaking at a conference Elaine C Smith claimed that a large proportion of those who backed the Union want to "bring back slavery".
‘No Thanks!’ blog Top Ten posts 2017By: Roger White / The Nation said No Thanks! Well, another year in a Scotland increasingly weary of nationalism draws to a fractious close and I take my annual look at the No Thanks! Top Ten most-read posts.
EU Withdrawal: Irritable Bill SyndromeBy: Kevin Hague / chokka blog The EU Withdrawal Bill is currently being eased through the bowels of Westminster, digested by the Houses of Commons and Lords, inched forward by the peristalsis of readings, committees and amendments. The question of where repatriated powers should lie and how this impacts the devolution settlements is clearly going to be a cause of irritation as the Bill forms. Nobody expects this to be a smooth passage.
The Little University on the PrairieBy: Lily of St. Leonards Apparently there is a plan in Scotland to pay students £8000 per year to study. Scottish students already have their fees paid by the taxpayer. The idea now is that they should be paid the equivalent of the "living wage" to study.
Hannah Bardell @HannahB4LiviMP Yup big game for us tomorrow.... who knows I may even manage another try! Perhaps more gracefully than the last one for @HolyroodRugby..... 🏉💪🏻💁♀️ https://t.co/d3rbVJzbMx

Mhairi Black MP @MhairiBlack @PaulJSweeney @IanMurrayMP “and has barely turned up at all” is commenting on more than Wednesday’s vote. *Completely* innapropriate.

Mhairi Black MP @MhairiBlack @PaulJSweeney @IanMurrayMP I know nothing of their circumstances which is exactly why I do not attack individuals. You can criticise policy decisions without the cheap personal digs.
Despicable to use sick leave as a weapon against a colleague. I really shouldn’t have to explain that to a ‘Labour’ MP
