Meet Scotland's MPs
On 7th May 48 of Scotland's 59 constituencies voted to send a new elected representative to Westminster. On the whole the 2015 Scottish intake are relatively unknown so here at McNeill and Stone we decided to find out who they are, what they did before becoming an MP, how you can get hold of them and what motivates them politically.
We've included information about how many people voted for them such as what the turnout in their constituency was, the percentage of the total votes they received and what their majority is.
We've also given you an indication of the size of their twitter and facebook following (all figures correct as at 17th May 2015). These figures are really interesting because they give you an idea not only of how active they are on social media but also how widely they are engaging with people outside of their constituencies.
Unless they come from a political family or their other half is a politician we haven't included any personal details like how old they are, who they are married to or how many children they have because we don't think it's relevant. Most of them have this information on their personal websites so you can view it there.
We have included information about some of their political priorities but we want to hear these from them so we're going to be speaking to each and every one of them to find out what makes them tick. If there's anything you'd like us to ask them please let us know.
We've also given you their social media details to make it easy for you to find out what they're doing on your behalf. Social media is a hugely important way for our MPs to stay in touch with the people who voted for them. The new intake have already been tweeting and sharing the experience of their first week in Westminster so for the first time we've been able to find out what it's actually like to be an MP in your first day on the job.
Even if you didn't vote for the person who is now your MP you should follow them on twitter or facebook and sign up to their mailing lists. They're your representatives in Westminster and whatever your political leanings they want to be the best voice for the people of Scotland that they can.
