Steve Sankey for the Scottish Greens made history today, Friday 5th May, when he was elected as an Orkney councillor.
“The Scottish Conservatives stance shows that they are nothing but apologists for the brutal acts of the UK Government.”
“an unacceptably casual approach to the consequences of the proposals on children affected and their parents/carers.”
“It is simply unacceptable for a Tory government, with no mandate in Scotland, to suggest it will defy the wishes of the Scottish Parliament.”
“It is clear that case for the Union from 2014 was a false prospectus – we are very clearly not better together. The UK is not OK.”
“I am particularly supportive of the recommendation for a region-wide strategic approach to the issue and I hope this can be brought forward as soon as possible.”
“I am a pacifist. So I am going to automatically be against these investments but I know that many other people won’t feel so strongly”
“Aquatera Wins Tidal Power Contract in Japan”
“Surely no-one with a conscience would wish to be investing directly or indirectly in this corrupt company and the weapons it manufactures”
Local SNP MSP Maree Todd has condemned the actions of Liam McArthur LibDem MSP for voting against investment in communities in Orkney which included the reduction of ferry fares.
