Scottish Parliament: Robert Burns (Economic Potential) (17 Jan 2018)

Stewart Stevenson: Like others, I thank Joan McAlpine for the opportunity to speak on this subject. My new intern, Chase Lindemann, started with me yesterday, and as is often the case when I have a new intern, I set him the challenge of writing a speech for me. Chase has written tonight’s speech; he has come from the United States and he has not been to Scotland before, but it is an indication of the...

In relation to my life experience,...

Stewart Stevenson: I wish a happy new year to all my colleagues in the chamber except for Tavish Scott, who will shortly celebrate new year with his constituents at Up Helly Aa, rather than celebrate it conventionally, on 1 January.

Scottish Parliament: Bank Branch Closures (14 Dec 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: I draw members’ attention to my entry in the register of interests. I remind banks that they do not stand apart from wider society—they exist to serve it, and they depend on its support for their continued existence and their special privileges. The Bank of Scotland opened its doors in 1695 and drew opprobrium in 1715 when its board backed a Jacobite rebellion. That led to the...

Stewart Stevenson: ...8221;. I said, “I know all the answers”, so what immediately happened? Somebody at the back put up their hand and said, “What’s my brother’s name?” The youngsters always beat the oldsters at every opportunity, and Stewart Stevenson is put back in his box, where he deserves to be. [ Interruption .] I love it when the Tories applaud something that I have...

Scottish Parliament: Small Business Saturday 2017 (29 Nov 2017)

Stewart Stevenson: First, I thank Ash Denham for the opportunity to talk about small businesses. I was immediately jealous of her access to a sweetie shop. I was six years old before I could go to the sweetie shop without my ration card. [ Laughter .] There are four of us in the Parliament for whom that would be true. As other members do, I use small businesses. On my journey down here this week, I travelled...
