Glasgow's MSPs and MPs

Here's what some of Glasgow's MSPs and MPs have been sharing and talking about on their Twitter feeds - today I'm highlighting Tweets from Sandra White, the MSP for Glasgow Kelvin and Patrick Grady, the MP for Glasgow North.

Lots of interesting topics covered - local, national and international - although nothing about the fight for equal pay in Glasgow, as far as I could see. 

More examples will follow in the days ahead.
