Independence is closer than ever. That’s why the 2021 Scottish Parliament elections are crucial. We need to elect SNP MSPs who are committed to delivering independence and building a better future for Scotland that puts all of us first.


After the virus we must build a Resilient Scotland, one which is able not only to withstand the economic, environmental and social disruptions we will face in the future but which is capable of providing good lives for the people of Scotland every day. 


The 2021 Scottish Parliament election is an opportunity for the SNP to make the positive case for independence based on the progressive ideas and principles we share with the wider Yes movement. The SNP Common Weal Group has led the debate on how we can work together to make change happen.


If elected as your SNP MSP, I will work to deliver:


- A Green New Deal for a just transition to a net-zero economy.

- A National Care Service to deliver high quality social care to everyone who needs it.

- Land reform which puts communities first and develops our land for the public good.

- Public ownership of key utilities and transport services.

- Stronger rights for tenants to ensure everyone has a safe, affordable home.

- Local wealth building to strengthen local economies and ensure money made and spent in our communities stays in our communities.
