Quotes

"If we are to tackle effectively the stigma attached to mental health issues the Scottish Government must lead from the front. I will continue to push the Scottish Government to adopt our reasonable proposals.”"
"Any liberal-minded person will be rightly concerned that the Justice Secretary condones the police simply appropriating powers to themselves."
"Our services are also under attack from the SNP's centralising agenda. The North East needs fair funding for Aberdeen City and Shire councils and decent housing . These are essential if we are to continue to build a stronger economy and fairer society for everyone living in the North East."
"Apart from the sanitation, medicine, education, wine, public order, irrigation, roads, the fresh waterwater system and public health, what have the Romans ever done for us?"
