club say they want to hear. Certainly, the airport expansion


will raise the profile of the area and raise the profile of West

The leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats, Willie Rennie,


has accused the SNP and the Conservatives


of campaigning on "fear, not hope" in his speech


Earlier, I spoke to our political correspondent David Porter


in Brighton, and put it to him that they're not the party of government


No, they are not. That is part of the reason the language we are


hearing this evening. He is very keen like other Liberal Democrats to


get people to hear his views. With the UK general election and the


general election. It is fair to say that the Liberal Democrats are


feeling marginalised at the moment. feeling marginalised at the moment.


-- Scottish parliament elections. The only have one MSP at -- five MSP

Willie Rennie says. He is aware that the only show in town at the moment


is Brexit and the reaction to that, hence the comments he has been


making today. He has accused both the SNP and the Tories of trying to


make party political advantage of that EU referendum almost three

Conservatives and the SNP. Stalled investment, uncertain future for EU


citizens, divided families, economic instability, tensions between the


nations of the UK. This is the work of the terrible twins of divisive


politics. I believe the former leader Lord Ashdown has been


thinking out loud today Koziello yes, he has. Three months on from


that EU referendum he has been thinking about what it means for


Scotland and whether Scotland remains part of the UK. He believes


the monks on the prospect of the union, are less dire than directly


after that referendum. He believes that any moves for a second


independence referendum, Nicola Sturgeon, in his words, will try to


play things long. He does say that if Britain does not say part of the


single market, he believes that will strengthen Nicola Sturgeon's hands


and any calls for a second referendum in Scotland. --

negotiations go, he thinks the Prime Minister could be tempted to call an

Westminster, you have not even wet your whistle. This was the satirical


wrap sketch that was performed at the Independence Convention on


Sunday. Singers representing Scotland's female leaders obstruct


the stage, making jokes and innuendo. You are about to get hit


with the wit from the Cabinet. What has caused controversy is that Ruth


Davidson character is introduced as Ruth date deed. She called the song


hilarious. The Conservative MSP also disagrees. She has written to them


asking to apologise. In this day in age, we are trying to educate and


have inclusive education for children with in our schools, yet,


we have a member of Parliament saying that was OK. It was hilarious


and it was just satire. It certainly was not. Ruth Davidson recently


and it was just satire. It certainly announced she was engaged to her


partner, Jennifer Wilson. She has made jokes about lesbians as well.


The Labour and Green Party also have gay leaders. Stonewall Scotland says


that homophobic language can still be heard in workplaces and schools.


Not everyone believes language brings discrimination. There is a


difference between people saying things or cracking crude jokes and


people being violent and we should get back to recognising there is a
