Thank you to the amazing people of Motherwell & Wishaw for re-electing me as your MP for a third time.

I want to thank the amazing team behind me for helping win the seat for the SNP. They have walked the soles off their shoes.

Thanks also to all the other candidates in what has been a fair and respectful campaign.

The people of Motherwell & Wishaw and the people of Scotland have sent a strong message to Boris Johnson: we demand a second independence referendum. No ifs. No buts. Scotland will have its say.

We will not allow our economy, services and very way of life be attacked again for another five years by a Tory government we did not vote for.

Scotland and the rest of the UK are following two separate paths. To secure the future we want for our children and grandchildren, we must be an independent country.
