It has been an honour and a privilege to represent Midlothian as your MP for the last two years. In this time I have been working on many different issues and representing the views of Midlothian in Westminster.

None of us expected to be going to the polls again at this time but with much work still to do I hope to have the opportunity to continue to represent you in Westminster.

In this election we face a clear choice, a choice between the most extreme right wing Tory Government in years, with the chaos of Brexit and the most appalling and inhumane policies like the rape clause and welfare cuts to the disabled, or a vote for the SNP to stand up and protect Midlothian’s interests at Westminster.

For the past two years the SNP has been the only real opposition at Westminster and now more than ever Scotland needs strong voices.

We must stand firm against the Tory agenda of hard-line austerity and for investment in public services, the SNP in this election will—as we always do—stand up for Scotland and Midlothian.
