Over 15,000,000 voters would disagree with you.
The @Conservatives might just squeak in. Big mistake from Theresa May to call this election. #GE2017 — William Olive ???????? (@WilliamTOlive2) June 9, 2017
This is the first minister of Scotland tweeting, by the way.

She’s been ripped apart by the right-wing press. Her constituents saw past it.
Humbled to receive an increased majority of over 35,000 in Hackney North & Stoke Newington.
