AUSTERITY AND BREXIT SHAMBLES CONTINUE TO HIT
SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford MP has said that Theresa May’s conference speech on the ‘British dream’ sounded more like a ‘Tory nightmare’ to people hit by years of austerity and cuts.
The prime minister’s speech, beset with problems , showed a party hopelessly divided on Brexit and with no end of their failed austerity in sight
Ian Blackford MP said:
“Theresa May’s speech – beset with problems and protests – proved the ‘British dream’ is a Tory nightmare for families and communities hit by years of endless austerity, cuts and low economic growth. That nightmare is now compounded by the dangerous shambles of Brexit which is a threat to jobs, businesses and livelihoods across the UK.
“Tory policies are deeply damaging to Scotland – from their obsession with failed austerity to their decision to charge our emergency services VAT; the mess of Universal Credit; their deeply damaging immigration policy and the assault of the most vulnerable in society, to the point that the United Nations has described Tory policy towards the disabled as a ‘human catastrophe’
