The SNP has said Liz Truss is “completely out of touch” with people in Scotland – as the Prime Minister failed to provide any reassurances on pensions and mortgages in her car crash local radio interviews and refused to reverse her disastrous budget.
Responding, Ian Blackford MP said the Prime Minister must recall parliament immediately and bring forward an emergency statement to reverse the damage she has caused – or step aside and give someone else a chance to do the right thing.
Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford MP said:
“The Tory government has taken a wrecking ball to the UK economy – and put beyond doubt that independence is the only way to keep Scotland safe from the damage of Westminster control and get rid of the Tories for good.
“Liz Truss has shown she is reckless, clueless and completely out of touch with people in Scotland – who are increasingly worried about the impact of the disastrous Tory budget on their mortgages, pensions, and household budgets.
“Parliament must be recalled immediately and an emergency statement must be brought forward to reverse the damage of the Tory budget and prevent a catastrophic economic crash.
“If this tin-eared Prime Minister refuses to act – then she should step aside and let someone else do the right thing before millions of people suffer.
“No one will feel reassured after the Prime Minister’s car crash radio interviews this morning – and the longer she refuses to act the more damage she will do.
“People in Scotland are getting a very clear message from the UK government – your homes, your pensions, your incomes are not safe under Westminster control.
“Independence is the only way to protect Scotland’s economy and build a fairer future.”
