RT @alec_fullerton: Despite yesterday's auction loss, @midstquarter are keeping up the fight to reclaim Dumfries high street from absentee investor landlords. The massive outpouring of support - raising almost £22k in only two weeks - has only spurred them on further. @ColinSmythMSP https://t.co/LDBU9PrlEE

I refrained from suggesting they may want to move 2 metres away from the person they were spouting bile to or better still stay at home for everyone’s benefit.

Overheard outside ALDI today “This is all the chinese fault. Dirty b@@@@ds. They made this. Trump has evidence. Missing my holiday to Cyprus cause of them” I’m sure the person saying this will be consoled knowing we seem better at this COVID19 spread thing than other countries 😡

@davidfkey @CllrScottArthur Yep ... she suggested the idea years ago when on the council during the festival ... and your Government has just caught up ...

Colin Smyth (Labour) tweeted :

Such “ridiculous” suggestions are sadly fuelled by failure of UK Government to set out an exit strategy framework. Instead of spouting standard lines given to them by their spin doctors Scottish Tory MPs & MSPs should be urging their own Government to do set our a framework (1/2) https://t.co/WnjcAWeCSA

Please join me and everyone else on Thursay to #ClapForCarers but please don’t buy and release sky lanterns🔥These are dangerous to animals and a fire hazard. I’m supporting @NFUStweets in urging the @scotgov to consider a ban colinsmythmsp.com/latest-news/20… https://t.co/6wtMnXc7B4

Colin Smyth (Labour) tweeted :

The problem is the letter they all received did not have this number. People (often without a mobile or internet) were asked to “text” if they needed help or go online to find their council shielding team number. Vital that everyone is contacted direct to ask if they need help.

Colin Smyth (Labour) tweeted :

It’s a disgrace that the @GOVUK & @scotgov are hiding from scrutiny with the @UKParliament & @scotlparl in “recess”. How dare we ask so many people to step up to the mark when our Parliaments are posted missing & we’re gagged from asking questions our constituents want answers to
