Nationalists control Holyrood, separation is not in Scotland’s interests. They have lost focus on education and council budget cuts are harming services. A Covid-19 and Climate Emergency recovery plan is required. Next May, Scotland can change direction. Let’s clearly articulate our policies as relevant to the whole nation.

We need strong liberal voices in public life to deliver a positive, uplifting vision for our country. After the division and turmoil of Brexit, independence and the pandemic we need more Liberal Democrats in Holyrood to make the case for the power of education and good mental health, federalism and decentralisation and power and a liberal justice system. With many years in parliament in Dunfermline, the region and North East Fife, as a grassroots campaigner or as Scottish Party Leader, I have the experience to win.
