Scottish Parliament: European Union Migrants (11 Dec 2019)

Keith Brown: Boris Johnson has said that, for too long, EU citizens have been “able to treat the UK as though it is basically part of their own country”.

Keith Brown: In light of the reports today that the couple who did their civic duty and reported the domestic disturbance in the Boris Johnson flat have now had to move out and require security assistance, and in light of the fact that the latest victim of Ruth Davidson’s endorsement, Jeremy Hunt, has admitted that the Tory Government, in contrast to the SNP Government in Scotland, has gone far too far...

Keith Brown: ...them from ill health, poor educational prospects or a lack of opportunities; and enhances their freedom. The difference between the SNP Government and the Tory Government could not be more stark. Boris Johnson and Jeremy Hunt have presided over a decade of austerity, cuts and sanctions, and they are now offering huge tax cuts to the wealthy. The Scottish Government, for its part, spends...

Scottish Parliament: Strict Liability (29 Oct 2013)

Keith Brown: ...change that has been mentioned. Perhaps that is worth investigating further. John Lamont talked about spend per head of population, but he restricted his comments to the Conservative Party and what Boris Johnson is doing in London. Outside London, the spend per head of population in other parts of England is around £1.50 whereas in Scotland this year it is around £4.00 and will be around...
