Tory government has been an unmitigated disaster for Scotland

Rishi Sunak’s visit to the Highlands today should mark the beginning of an “apology tour of Scotland”, the SNP has said.

Stephen Flynn branded the Westminster Tory government an “unmitigated disaster” for Scotland, having imposed Brexit and a cost of living crisis, and having continually rejected the democratic right for Scots to choose their own future.

Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader Stephen Flynn MP said:

“Rishi Sunak’s fleeting visit should mark the beginning of an apology tour of Scotland – and it’s a reminder of why it’s essential to vote SNP to remove the Tory government and put Scotland first.

“This Tory government has been an unmitigated disaster for Scotland – imposing Brexit, austerity cuts and a cost of living crisis, and denying Scotland’s democratic right to choose our own future with independence.

“The Highlands has suffered at the hands of Westminster despite the bright future the region could have at the heart of our energy transition –  the SNP will always demand investment in Highlands jobs and we saw that recently with a Japanese firm set to invest £350m in the region thanks to backing from the SNP Scottish Government.

“Only a vote for the SNP can protect our NHS and economy from Westminster parties who have no interest in Scotland’s priorities.

“A vote for the SNP is a vote to put Scotland first – and for Scotland to become an independent country.”
