SNP candidate for Gordon, Alex Salmond, has pledged to continue to campaign for a Buchan railway connection between Aberdeen, Fraserburgh and Peterhead, referencing the many successes of the Borders Railway and the positive impacts it brought to surrounding communities since opening in 2015.
SNP International Affairs spokesperson, Alex Salmond, has drawn the contrast between the attitude of newly elected French President Emmanuel Macron and UK Prime Minister Theresa May on their attitudes to the far right in politics.
Mr Salmond said:
“We are all well up for the battle ahead. I stand for re-election on my record, on the need to provide real opposition to the Tory Government and to protect our own Scottish Parliament as the place to decide Scotland’s future."
MP for Gordon, Alex Salmond has today welcomed the announcement of a multi-million-pound reinvestment back into the Scottish Government's Digital Scotland Superfast Broadband programme.
£410 million is being invested in the DSSB programme by the Scottish Government, Highlands and Islands Enterprise (HIE), BT, the UK Government through Broadband Delivery UK (BDUK), local authorities and the European Regional Development Fund.
Following reports from Channel 4 News that at least 30 Conservative Party members of parliament and agents are subject to reports to the Crown Prosecution Service for suspected breaches of electoral law, Alex Salmond has raised a Point of Order in the House of Commons about the impact this could have on the General Election.
