This Feature is GREAT 

I really like the feature for putting warnings before a post.

The "CW" option will be great for posts or distressing stories.


I'm calling on The Scottish Parliament to make CMV testing standard during Pregnancy.

can lead to kids being blind, deaf or have learning difficulties.

If caught early, treatment significantly reduces risks. A simple blood test is all that's required.

Should an Independent Scotland have an honours system comparable to Westminster's?

I think it should have one, but they are decided by an independent commission.

The emphasis should be on Work in the community not politics or sport imho.

May 2020 be the year you become free from occupation and have your borders returned to their 1967 lines.

💥 Carers never get enough recognition at anytime of the year, let alone

Whether you're a paid or unpaid carer, I just want to say that you are all AMAZING.

Thank you for all that you do.


If you need to talk to someone, don't be afraid to. There's ALWAYS someone ready to listen.

You are never alone.

Wishing everyone a peaceful and safe Festive Season.

@RespectIsVital It's also worth being aware - that Sarah Millican will be on Twitter under the #JoinIn hashtag where people who are struggling on Christmas Day can connect with other people and make things just a little bit less depressing for everyone involved.

My son was born with Congenital Cytomegalovirus, better known as .

It poses a risk to unborn children & can lead to hearing loss & disability.

If caught early in pregnancy, treatment can reduce risks.

The NHS don't test for it. This NEEDS to change.

I'm waiting on my Scot Gov Petition to go live. In meantime, can the community do me a favour & share this.

It's illogical they don't test for a condition were the effects can be lessened by early diagnosis.

The DWP used their first day after the General Election to quietly remove a rule that protected benefit claimants from interference by jobcentre staff.

The no longer need permission to write to your doctor and can once again tell GPs not to issue sick notes to sick or disabled claimants.

If you are refused a sick note, tell the doctor you'll be complaining to the GMC for breaking their hypocratic oath to protect your health.

Do not allow them to take DWP orders.

Twitter casually pretending that Muslims in aren't suffering oppression and removal of their human rights.

What a cesspit it is.

They seemed to have missed the tear gas, street beatings and ethnic cleansing.

Not sure that tourists would be keen in that.

@RespectIsVital Hi Alex, I think you'll find that a good percentage of yessers were labour in a past life, myself included. I really don't think it matters what political party we support anymore. It's coming down to a direct fight between what kind of Country we want to live in, who has the capabilities to create that Country & those that would hold us back from achieving that.

@RespectIsVital a friend told me that Labour party was originally named Labour and Independence party.
I've seen their early art of workers smashing through the doors of the HoL. I know labour members who left because those values are no longer upheld. Labour party needs to regroup and decide what it stands for. Voting in Scotland's Parliament against Scotland's people having a voice and referendum shows me they are out of touch.

Scottish are beginning to accept the idea of independence | The National

Warming too, but members like myself are emailing en-masse urging them to make a push NOW.

Some are only for and not Independence. NOT good enough.

We will keep pushing for them to change to a full Independence stance. We're planning on forcing a vote on it.

🎄 That's it folks: I am off on my Christmas travels. Might bump into some of you as I trek around Scotland.

Have a blessed Christmas and a happy New Year. May this be our last under the boot of Westminster.
