As I write this, the UK government has just been defeated yet again over its Brexit plans.

Boris Johnson’s “super Saturday” turned out to be a busted flush. The prime minister’s statement to parliament contained much bluff and bluster, but the beleaguered PM didn’t bother to mention Scotland even once.

So we’re left with a feeling of déjà vu as Theresa May’s failed Brexit deal is rehashed yet again and Scotland’s interests continue to be shunned and ignored by this disastrous Tory government.

In the 90 days since becoming PM, Boris Johnson has lost eight votes in the Commons; lost his parliamentary majority; lost 23 of his own Conservative MPs; lost a by-election; lost a case in the Supreme Court; acted unlawfully in shutting down parliament, and misled the Queen.

Even Boris Johnson’s own brother has turned his back on him. In ordinary times, any British prime minister would have had no choice but to resign in such circumstances - but these are not ordinary times.

This is a threat to our future that we wanted no part of. West Dunbartonshire and every part of Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain - yet we face being dragged out of the EU against our will which would be ruinous for Scottish jobs and our economy.

I am clear that I will not support any Tory Brexit deal that forces hardship on my constituents.

The extraordinary events of the past few weeks have confirmed what we knew all along: Scotland is being failed by Westminster and Boris Johnson isn’t fit to be prime minister. With the Tories in a complete mess, and Labour sitting on the fence in an abysmal failure of opposition, it’s been left to the SNP to lead the way in standing up for Scotland’s interests.

We know that a general election is just around the corner. It is a profound privilege to represent West Dunbartonshire in the House of Commons, and my experience of serving our communities over the past four years makes me more determined than ever to ensure Scotland’s voice is heard.

The next election will be a fight for Scotland’s future, and I am hugely honoured to have been selected as the SNP’s candidate once again for West Dunbartonshire.

Whatever happens in the days and weeks ahead, I will continue to stand up for the people of Clydebank, as well as those in Dumbarton and the Vale, to the very best of my ability.
