    In March Nicola Sturgeon signed a deal with two Chinese companies that could be worth up to £10bn. But she didn't tell anyone about it.

    This is unusual. The SNP government usually would put out a press release about the opening of an envelope. But days after the deal was signed, the top news stories on the government website were on changes to dog fouling fines and an update on the Scottish beaver population.

    Today I want to talk about Britain's two most important relationships: with our neighbours in Europe; and our cousins in the United States.

    Article: Apr 18, 2016

    Commenting on Treasury analysis, which shows that Brexit would cost British households up to £4,300, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Tim Farron said:

    "The sheer volume of serious and sobering evidence against turning our backs on Europe is overwhelming. The Treasury assessment today, showing a £4,300 cost to families, gives another stark warning about the impact on every household in Britain.

    This morning I joined some of our candidates and their children to launch our manifesto for the 2016 election.

    The title of the manifesto is "Be the best again". That is our ambition for Scotland.

    With the biggest investment in education since devolution we will make Scottish education the best again after it slipped to just average.
