The SNP has said that Scotland is due £3billion after another broken promise on HS2 from the UK Tory government as the rail link’s extension to Glasgow has been scrapped.
News to ditch the HS2 Golborne extension to Glasgow was sneaked out during the Tory party no confidence vote.
It means Scotland is once again being short-changed by the Tories at Westminster, with independence being the only way to protect Scotland from Tory cuts and broken promises.
It follows from further broken promises such as the farcical suggestion that a bridge could be built between Scotland and Northern Ireland.
Commenting, SNP MSP Kaukab Stewart said:
“Once again Scotland is set to lose out on billions as a result of empty Tory promises, Scotland is all too familiar with this story, when it comes to Westminster all we get in return is cuts, not cash.
“When it comes to transport, we heard broken promises about the ridiculous Boris bridge and now we can add the HS2 extension to Glasgow to the scrapheap.
“We cannot trust the Tories to invest in transport in Scotland or any other public service for that matter.
“Boris Johnson is full of bluster when it comes to connectivity, but he fails to back any of it up.
“On the other hand, the SNP Scottish Government has a track record in delivering for the people of Scotland with new lines and stations opening across the country and millions being invested in decarbonising our trains and encourage more people to leave the car at home.
“That is why the only way we can protect Scotland from broken promises and Tory cuts is to become an independent country.”
