Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Hugh Henry (Renfrewshire South) (Lab) Will Mike MacKenzie give way?



Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Hugh Henry (Renfrewshire South) (Lab) There are 36 days until the pig-in-a-poke referendum—until Scotland is asked to have a leap in the dark, and Scots are asked to vote on the basis of assertion that is backed up with no evidence, on the basis of bluster from the First Minister, and on the basis that, if we vote yes, everything will b...

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014

Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Hugh Henry The nationalists’ camp is split and they are worried that Alex Salmond is leading them to doom, so we can understand why long-standing nationalists such as Jim Sillars are so profoundly unhappy that they have been led up the garden path by a Scottish National Party that cannot deliver.



Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Hugh Henry Will the cabinet secretary take an intervention?



Meeting of the Parliament 12 August 2014 : Tuesday, August 12, 2014
Hugh Henry On a point of order, Presiding Officer. Mr Russell has just made a statement in which he attributed words to me that I did not say. Is it in order for members to fabricate words that were not said during the debate and attribute them to other members? [Interruption.]
