Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (19 Sep 2013)

Margo MacDonald: I am very interested in and am trying to follow what Mr Brown is saying, so I ask this question most sincerely. Does the Opposition on the benches where he sits expect to see a different outturn from the economic measures that are taken on either side of the border, or does it expect events to bring forth the same ends?

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (19 Sep 2013)

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Economy (19 Sep 2013)

Margo MacDonald: I am interested in what Richard Baker is saying and I am glad that he, and everyone else, is taking the subject seriously this afternoon.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (18 Sep 2013)

Margo MacDonald: I wonder whether Ruth Davidson is aware that there are fewer men under arms in the British army and other services now than there were at the start of the battle of Waterloo.

Scottish Parliament: Scotland’s Future (18 Sep 2013)

Margo MacDonald: As every speech has shown, there are alternatives. So why independence? Because we’re worth it. [Laughter.] Of course independence will also make Scotland better off, though not perhaps by the 500 quid promised by The Scotsman.
