Welcome to the Website of ANGUS ROBERTSON MP

ROBERTSON Angus.jpgAngus is the Member of Parliament for Moray, representing his constituents on matters reserved to Westminster.

This is combined with his other roles as the SNP’s Westminster group leader and party spokesperson on defence and foreign affairs. Due to the upcoming Scottish independence referendum on the September 18, he is also the SNP independence referendum campaign director as a result of his experience in directing the party’s successful 2007 and 2011 Scottish Parliament election campaigns.

Angus was born in Wimbledon in 1969. His mother is German, and as a consequence he is bilingual. Angus now lives in a small town within his constituency.

Following his education in Edinburgh and at Aberdeen University, where he graduated with an MA in Politics and International Relations, Angus moved to Vienna where he worked as a reporter, news reader and news editor with the Austrian Broadcasting Corporation and the BBC respectively.

Angus was elected to the House of Commons in the 2001 UK General Election as Scotland's youngest MP for Moray.

The region is home to more than half of Scotland's malt whisky distilleries and to large military bases at Kinloss, a barracks, and Lossiemouth, a RAF base. Angus was commended for campaigning hard with his constituents to save RAF Lossiemouth from closure in 2011. It is as a result of campaigns such as this that Angus has, on a number of occasions, been recognised as Scotland's 'hardest working parliamentarian' and been nominated three times as the 'Best Scottish MP at Westminster', winning the award in 2011.

Angus has a high profile on foreign affairs and defence issues. He served for a decade on the European Committee in the UK parliament and is currently on the UK parliamentary delegation to the Organisation for Security and Cooperation in Europe (OSCE). Angus is a graduate of the Armed Forces Parliamentary Scheme and is vice-chairman of the Parliamentary Armed Forces Group. He recently led the most significant update to SNP defence and security policy, preparing the ground for the independence referendum with a commitment for Scotland to play a full part in NATO as a non-nuclear hosting country with a strong commitment to neighbours and regional security in Northern Europe.

In his spare time, Angus enjoys playing golf (although not very good) and cooking.
