b 10 July 1929

Scottish Nationalist  politician

 

As I took my seat it was said by political pundits that 'a chill ran along the Labour benches looking for a spine to run up'.

After winning the Hamilton by-election 1967

 

The Scottish parliament which adjourned on 25 March 1707 is hereby reconvened.

I am expert in being a minority. I was alone in the House of Commons for three years and alone in the European Parliament for nineteen years, but we are all minorities now.
