Glad to have made my contribution to this important programme which raises very important and serious questions. Half hour documentary is just the start - there should be a comprehensive enquiry. Justice not yet delivered in full for so many low paid women.

Quoted @CataloniaHelp2

Spanish policemen in Catalonia brutally attack Catalans in Barcelona. They are shooting up: 56 people injured by now. Thousands of Catalans say enough is enough over the brutal sentence of the #SpanishInquisition #HelpCatalonia #SpainIsAFascistState

This is what Spanish democracy looks like just now as paramilitary police shooting guns upwards & batons on non-violent protestors - You cannot imprison 6 million Catalans ‘la repressió no ens farà enrere! Ara, acabem el que vam començar. Guanyem la independència!’ 🎗💪🏼✊🏽

A @BBCDisclosure investigation has found thousands of women who fought Glasgow City Council for equal pay have had legal fees deducted from their compensation. This is despite assurances from their trade unions that they would keep 100% of any pay-out. https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/uk-scotland-49985113 …

This is outrageous. Did unions pay no-win, no-fee lawyer Stefan Cross for women workers THEY were meant to be representing out of the workers pay-out pot?

This may not be a popular view amongst some of my followers, but whilst I appreciate that this is a matter for the Spanish courts & judiciary, I cannot see the sense in the Madrid Govt jailing Catalan leaders for an essentially political move.

A Queen's speech BEFORE an election now a new budget apparently AFTER we've leapt into the fiscal unknown. The crazy gang strikes again.

Truly one of the most ludicrous sights in a supposid "modern day democracy" where someone sitting upon a golden throne, says through golden microphones, that the government intends to leave the EU at the end of the month.

.@EU_Commission on verdict Catalan separatists' trial: "No comment on national courts' decisions. Our position has not changed: this is and remains an internal matter for Spain. The EC fully respects Spanish Constitutional order, including decisions of the Spanish judiciary"

Not good enough. If we don’t apply values at the difficult times too they cease to be values. The EU should play a far more active role in mediation.

Thank you to everyone who has taken part in #Scotclimateweek this year, helping to raise awareness about climate change across multiple sectors of Scottish society. The work doesn't end here however. We all need to work together to tackle the global climate emergency.

Spanish court gives nine Catalan politicians and activists long jail terms for roles in 2017 independence referendum https://bbc.in/2BcafdM 

These politicians have been jailed for seeking to allow the people of Catalonia to peacefully choose their own future. Any political system that leads to such a dreadful outcome needs urgent change. My thoughts and solidarity are with all of them and their families.
