Well, we always said you couldn't trust the Lib Dems not to go into coalition with the SNP, and in Aberdeen, we have been proved right. It is now obvious, the only party that truly stands up against the SNP, for the North East and for our union is the @Conservatives.
Looks like the SNP & Lib Dem deal is done to form an Administration in @AberdeenCC tomorrow. Attempts to form an Admin with us, Labour & Lib Dems unsuccessful due to Labour's national ban on formal partnerships. This gave the Lib Dems the out needed to do a deal with the SNP.

If true, a hugely disappointing move from the Lib Dems in legitimising a separatist SNP administration in Aberdeen, locking unionists out of power. Frankly, I expected more from @agcolehamilton and his party.

馃 9+ months on from the SNP's Just Transition fund announcement and not a penny has been spent. Nor are there details on how it will support the '000s of jobs in the NE. 馃嚞馃嚙 It鈥檚 time the SNP worked with the UK Govt and their 拢16B transition fund and delivered for NE Scotland.

Sounds like the First Ministers trip to America is off to a flying start.

This review is confirmation the SNP are prepared to backtrack on previous commitments to dual the A96, which is so badly needed for communities across Moray. The road is in urgent need of upgrades and the SNP are kicking them into the long grass. pressandjournal.co.uk/fp/new鈥

Spot on here from energy minister @GregHands that slapping a windfall tax on the profits of energy giants would 鈥渒ill off鈥 North Sea investment and push up costs for families in the long term.

The missing document we need is one that tells us why the SNP awarded the ferries contract to Ferguson Marine, not another email in support of their desperate 鈥極peration Blame Derek Mackay鈥.
NEW: Transport Minister Jenny Gilruth said the "missing" ferries document has been found. She tells MSPs it proves the contract for the two vessels was signed off by Derek Mackay.

This SNP Govt is spending absolutely astronomical amounts of taxpayers cash on social media. Up 拢2.6M over 5 years, while people are struggling more than ever, is ridiculous. The public deserve better transparency with how their money is spent. aberdeenlive.news/news/aberd鈥

With every country racing to move away from expensive gas, the SNP government鈥檚 opposition to new nuclear looks increasingly mindless. Nuclear is the only tech available to provide continuous low-carbon power at scale. It is critical for energy security. scotsman.com/news/politics/s鈥

Criminals over victims, that's the SNP's priority. The @ScotTories victims bill will put an end to the SNP's soft-touch justice and ensure that victims are always put first.
The SNP have taken bobbies off the beat and allowed violent crime to soar. Their soft-touch approach to justice has made our streets less safe. Tomorrow, we will hold this government to account for neglecting victims.

The SNP can try spin it anyway they want but the fact is that Scotland is not interested in another referendum. It's time they started focusing on the day job for a change!
