Plans to cut the tax paid by passengers flying from Scottish airports are scrapped after a backlash over the environmental impact.
Nicola SturgeonThe #ClimateEmergency places a responsibility on us to cut emissions faster. @scotgov is determined to live up to that and the ADT decision is a signal of intent. I hope opposition parties also step up to the plate on policies like workplace parking.
Radical plans to hold back tens of millions of pounds from Holyrood and allow UK ministers instead to spend the cash directly north of the Border have been set out by environment secretary Michael Gove.
Nicola SturgeonWhen I spoke two weeks ago of the real risk of devolution being forced into reverse by the Tories, I didn’t expect them to be quite so quick to prove me right. Not being at the mercy of this nonsense is one of many reasons Scotland needs independence.
The Scottish government will legislate for the greenhouse gas cut after receiving fresh advice from an expert panel.
Nicola SturgeonConfirmation by @scotgov today that Scotland's greenhouse gas emissions target will be net-zero by 2045 - continuing our global leadership in tackling climate change. #ClimateEmergency
The government repeatedly claims exiting the EU is 'the will of the people'. We need to put a stop to this claim by proving the strength of public support now, for remaining in the EU. A People's Vote may not happen - so vote now.
Nicola SturgeonAn issue as big and important as Brexit should not come down to petitions - that said, if you are frustrated that the PM is just not listening, you can sign here.
Cabinet sources dismiss the prospect of another independence referendum, as Nicola Sturgeon prepares to set out her plans.
Nicola SturgeonThe justification here from a UK Minister for trying to block Scotland’s right to choose independence is quite something - “once you've hit the iceberg, you're all on it together". Well, actually, no, Scotland does not have to sink with the Brexit ship.
Scotland can be a stronger, fairer and more prosperous place. As a nation, we have so much potential. The SNP is determined to make Scotland all it can be and you can be a part of it. So, sign-up and get involved today.
The PM will stress immigration changes in a CBI speech - amid the threat of a leadership challenge.
Nicola SturgeonStopping EU citizens ‘jumping the queue’ - that the case for Brexit has been reduced to such a miserable and self defeating bottom line is depressing in the extreme. Let’s lift our sights higher than this.
Nicola SturgeonThis is a message I recorded to show support for #BabyLossAwarenessWeek. Pregnancy and baby loss affect lots of people - I’ve been one - and yet there’s still too much silence and not always enough support for those who need it. It’s time to change that.
The prime minister urges Nicola Sturgeon to stop focusing on independence and instead concentrate on the "day to day issues".
Nicola SturgeonIn last two days alone @Scotgov has delivered a pay increase for police, put dignity into disability assessments, shown that we are building affordable houses at faster rate than UK, and more...but always glad to hear from our single issue Brexit PM 😉
The fire at the Guru Nanak Gurdwara Sahib in Edinburgh caused extensive smoke damage.
Nicola SturgeonThis is appalling. An attack on any individual or community because of their faith or race is an attack on all of us. The Sikh community are a wonderful and valued part of Scotland’s diverse society. They have my support and solidarity.
Philosophically, intellectually—in every way—human society is unprepared for the rise of artificial intelligence.
Nicola SturgeonIf you want something non party political to get your intellectual juices flowing this Monday morning, I recommend this by Henry Kissinger on the philosophical questions that Artificial Intelligence poses for the human race.
