“Austerity is a cruel and politically motivated agenda that results in us all suffering. We see disabled deaths rise, we see higher levels of child poverty, we see higher levels of working poor all whilst the rich friends of the Tories are getting richer; richer on the back of our suffering. This on top of the shameful Rape Clause supported by Ruth Davidson! Let’s show them we are a community who have compassion and care, let’s show them we will defend our poorest and most vulnerable!”
We will make our presence known at the Conservative Conference this March!
People are getting sick of Brexit we hear.An excellent blog posted this morning tells us that is what Westminster wants.They want Scotland to go back ‘in the box’ be compliant and not ask anymore questions.
This week we are seeing that Brexit is nearing the ‘end game’ at least from a Scottish perspective.
The lies from Davis and Mundell are being exposed by a Scottish Government which has already done the sums.When the UK government refuses to reveal the impacts of Brexit you know we are in trouble.
Even a soft Brexit it was revealed would cost £39 billion a year and a loss of 700,000 jobs.Thats if we stay inside the single market- that gets a 2% drop in GDP. The ‘middle’ option would see 5% lower GDP and £99 billion less per year, and it also comes with a loss of 1,750,000 jobs.
Under a ‘no deal’ scenario favoured by many Brexiteers,the job losses goes up to a staggering 2.8 million and £158 billion less per year
Not only are the Tories split over these ‘options’ they are also in the process of dismantling their NHS and with Brexit look set to dismantling the devolution settlement for Scotland as well as Wales. Total self destruct mode.
Now would be a good time for Scotland to launch our lifeboat to escape the chaos and destruction of Tory Britain. Independence referendum any time soon please. G
