An interesting tweet yesterday from the Tory MP for Stirling, complete with dubiously edited video, claiming he got no answers to a question about what the Scottish government is doing with its benefit powers.

Oh look it’s answer to your question from Neil Gray. Hopefully that refreshes your memory Stephen, I’m sure you didn’t deliberately set out to mislead and misinform.
