Last quote by Kezia Dugdale

I appreciate that to quite a few of my constituents, this is quite a controversial move. I know there will be people upset about it, that will question my priorities. I think it's an amazing opportunity to talk to young people who watch this programme about politics, and – in particular – Labour values. I haven't settled what portion will go to charity yet as there's lots of things I have to do, like pay taxes. I'll do that on return, but I have already paid my salary in advance. Raising money for charity is part of the reason I'm doing this.feedback

Jun 26 2017 - Northern Ireland

If the price of propping up this miserable Tory government is hundreds of millions of pounds for Northern Ireland, it is vital that all nations and regions of the UK also get extra funding to end austerity. If Scottish Tory leader Ruth Davidson has any influence in Downing Street at all, she will be demanding extra cash to reverse the spending cuts her government has inflicted on Scotland – aided and abetted by the SNP, which has simply turned Holyrood into a conveyer belt for Tory cuts.feedback

Jun 19 2017 - Scottish independence

Ian Duncan was rejected by the people of Perth and North Perthshire just days ago. Now it seems he will sit in Parliament anyway thanks to a Tory stich-up. That shouldn't be how our democracy works.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - Scottish referendum

We've seen support from those who voted SNP in 2015 and are disappointed the party hasn't lived up to its anti-austerity rhetoric. There is also undoubtedly some tactical voting from people who voted No in the referendum. If you look at seats like Coatbridge and East Lothian they couldn't be more different in terms of demographic but they illustrate that combination of no voting and anti-austerity voters that has taken up the seven seats.feedback

Jun 10 2017 - Scottish independence

I'm sure she'll be slightly concerned this Tory resurgence in Scotland is partly down to the borrowed vote from the pro-unionists.feedback

Jun 07 2017 - Scottish referendum

I'm disappointed the First Minister has chosen to diminish her office in that way… She decided to resort to some dirty gutter politics in the final hours of the campaign. I have never been anything but clear that I stand firmly opposed to independence, and a second independence referendum because of the damage it would do to Scotland's economy.feedback

Jun 06 2017 - Scottish referendum

But the idea I would do anything other than protect the United Kingdom and fight for us to remain in the UK is an absolute nonsense.feedback

Jun 06 2017

You know fine well, Ruth, that we believe that a second independence referendum is unwanted and unnecessary and I think what is really important is that you stop waking up every single day trying to undermine the Union that you say you care about. Yes, you can trust him the Union and you can trust him far more than the Tory Party.feedback

Jun 02 2017 - Labour Party

He doesn't believe the SNP are a progressive party … there's nothing progressive about trying to break up the United Kingdom. He [Corbyn] has been abundantly clear every time he is in Scotland and across the UK, it is his own words, in his own manifesto as well, a second referendum on independence is unnecessary and unwanted. We are against independence because of the austerity it would cause.feedback

May 30 2017 - Scottish referendum

It is clearer than ever that the majority of Scots who don't want another divisive independence referendum need to send Nicola Sturgeon a message that she should focus on the day job.feedback

May 28 2017 - Scottish independence

I am the only leader that has travelled from Stornaway to Lockerbie and everywhere I go I meet people who are distressed, upset, worried about the instability that a second referendum would cause and indeed the damage that independence would do in terms of pounds15 billion of additional cuts.feedback

May 22 2017 - Northern Ireland

It is very clear to me that we are 20 years on from that Good Friday Agreement and that transformed Northern Ireland. And we must do everything we can to maintain peace in Northern Ireland and that's a commitment in this manifesto and it's one that wouldn't have happened if we hadn't have a Labour government and it is exactly why we need a Labour government again. If, like me, you want to break the hold that nationalism has on our politics, vote for the only party that can defeat the SNP in most places in Scotland - the Labour Party.feedback

May 21 2017 - Scottish referendum

I want a Labour government – but if the polls are right the Tories will be back and more destructive than ever before. So who do you trust to stand up to the Tories? Labour MPs who understand your life because they have lived it? Or SNP MPs who will use every bit of Tory cruelty to exploit the case for another independence referendum?feedback

May 17 2017 - Labour Party

Labour values must always run through any deals in local government. The hundreds of thousands of Scots who vote for us have the absolute right to expect us to defend local services against cuts and properly fund the services that so many people rely on such as education and care for the elderly. Labour cannot do any deal with another party if it would result in further austerity being imposed on local communities. Tory austerity risks hurting so many families in Aberdeen, and the Labour Party simply will not stand for that.feedback

May 17 2017

If they do proceed with a deal with the Tories and independents, we will be writing to the Labour group in Aberdeen making clear that they're in breach of the Labour party rulebook and we will take the associated necessary disciplinary action alongside that.feedback

May 16 2017 - Scottish independence

This manifesto is a radical vision for a country that works for the many, not just a privileged few. A Labour government will redistribute wealth and power across the UK. Labour's manifesto gives voters a real choice: a fairer Scotland for the many, not the few; or a Scotland caught between the two extremes of Tory and SNP nationalism.feedback

May 12 2017 - Scottish independence

But for this price, we stop any cuts to their kids libraries, we can make sure teachers have the resources that they need, to ensure that their parents can live in their own homes for as long as possible.feedback

May 12 2017 - Labour Party

I support what John McDonnell is doing around using progressive tax powers. I'm very proud of what we did last year and I intend to stand by it because I want to be able to credibly demonstrate to people that we can make different choices from the Tories. I'm sticking to that because I think it is incredibly important for the long term progress of the Scottish Labour party that I can credibly point to an alternative to austerity. That's a very deliberate policy that raises enough money that stops the cuts.feedback

May 12 2017 - Scottish independence

Retaining Edinburgh South and making progress in other seats. I use those words carefully because where Labour is polling at a very strong second to the SNP in many urban areas, SNP MPs are defending massive majorities. So progress in many places can look like whacking a big slice off of that. I would like to win more seats; we're setting out to win more seats. That's what progress looks like to me.feedback

May 11 2017 - Scottish referendum

This desperate attempt to win back voters who are deserting the SNP for its record of failure in office won't fool anyone.feedback

May 11 2017 - Labour Party

There's a lot of really good, solid ideas in there that all deserve to have their own ideas discussed in the pubs and town centres and streets of the country. It is a shame it has all been leaked in that sense. They want to see these services work in their interests - they are fed up of private profits being the number one priority of the Tory government. That is why this represents a radical transformational plan for our country, and it is one that every Labour candidate will be proud to stand behind.feedback

May 05 2017 - Scottish independence

This is obviously a disappointing election for Labour, but thousands of people in communities across Scotland have placed their trust in us and we will continue to play a major role in local government.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Scottish independence

The historic achievements of the last Labour government are still having a massive impact on the lives of people today. Labour choices in government mean workers are now getting a fair wage, despite Tory opposition. Labour choices in government took 600,000 children out of poverty across the UK – 120,000 of them in Scotland - despite Tory claims it was impossible.feedback

Apr 30 2017 - Northern Ireland

And Labour delivered peace in Northern Ireland, ending one of the world's longest-running and most fractious conflicts. This is what Labour does in government and what it can do if you vote Labour on June 8.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Labour Party

At this election, the choice again will be clear: a Tory Party intent on a hard and damaging Brexit; or a Labour Party that will oppose a second independence referendum and fight for a better future for everybody. We will work tirelessly to elect Jeremy Corbyn Prime Minister and deliver a Labour government.feedback

Apr 18 2017 - Labour Party

The polls are undoubtedly very challenging but as Jeremy Corbyn has said in the past we're on an election footing and has been on an election footing. We relish the opportunity to take on and defeat this Tory government.feedback

Mar 31 2017 - Scottish independence

People across Scotland will be dismayed that Nicola Sturgeon is more focused on rerunning the arguments of the past than doing her job of running our public services. Scotland doesn't need or want a second independence referendum. There is absolutely no evidence that another divisive referendum is the will of the people of Scotland.feedback

Mar 28 2017

Each of these issues constitute an individual scandal. Together they represent a complete abdication of responsibility. But we aren't discussing any of those things … not when there is yet another independence debate to be had.feedback

Mar 21 2017 - Scottish referendum

We have already heard from the first minister about the need to respect the will of this parliament. If only she respected the mandates given to government by this chamber before now. When this parliament votes for another referendum as it inevitably will, thanks to the perpetual crutch that the Greens provide, let's not pretend it reflects the will of the Scottish people, because it doesn't. The Scottish people don't want a divisive referendum.feedback

Mar 20 2017 - Scottish independence

Nicola Sturgeon wakes up every single day thinking of ways to engineer another referendum because leaving the UK is the only thing that matters to her. It isn't improving education in Scotland; it isn't lifting children out of poverty; it isn't giving us a health service fit for the 21st century. It's independence - she is a nationalist and that will always come first. But the will of the Scottish people was very clearly expressed in 2014.feedback

Mar 19 2017

At the moment, there is not a clear choice for Scottish voters. If we have to have another referendum … we have to make sure people understand what they get either way.feedback

Mar 18 2017 - Scottish independence

Gordon and I have been working closely together as Labour puts forward an alternative to the constitutional extremes offered by the SNP and the Tories. Last month, I was delighted to secure the support of party conference for our vision of a federal UK. Our call for a reformed UK is about meeting the demand for change. One message from the independence and EU referendums was that people wanted more control over their lives. That's why Labour's plan for a People's Constitutional Convention and a federal UK will transform where political and economic power will lie in our country.feedback

Mar 18 2017 - Scottish independence

We know that together we are stronger when the nations of our United Kingdom work together rather than split apart. Scottish Labour will vote against a second referendum next week and the Labour Party I lead will never support leaving the UK.feedback

Mar 13 2017 - Scottish independence

Scotland is already divided enough. We do not want to be divided again, but that is exactly what another independence referendum would do.feedback

Mar 09 2017 - Scottish referendum

This is yet another attempt by Nicola Sturgeon to sow division and uncertainty, at a time when the country needs to pull together more than ever.feedback
