Scottish Labour Completely Out of Touch With Scotland’s values

As Scottish Labour delegates gather for their party conference in Glasgow, the SNP Depute Leader branded the party “completely out of touch with Scotland’s values”.

Sir Keir Starmer, who is expected to address Labour delegates this weekend, has refused to back an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, said his party would not turn on the spending taps if they got into Downing Street and members of Labour’s front bench have opened the door to NHS privatisation.

SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown MSP said:

“Whether it’s Sir Keir Starmer’s refusal to end Tory austerity, Labour’s conspiracy of silence on the damage of Brexit or the party’s failure to back a ceasefire to end the suffering in Gaza, Labour is completely out of touch with Scotland’s values.

“As Labour’s branch office in Scotland meets this weekend, they need to outline how their values – to end the cap on banker’s bonuses, to keep the hated two-child cap and to throw £28bn green investment pledge on the scrapheap – reflect the values of the people of Scotland.

“The SNP takes our instructions from the people of Scotland, delivering every day in government and building our positive vision for an independent nation, free from Westminster governments of any colour that Scotland doesn’t vote for.

“The SNP backs an immediate ceasefire in Gaza, is determined to end more than a decade of Tory austerity and wants to reverse the catastrophic damage of Brexit.

“At the upcoming General Election, Labour doesn’t need Scotland to win but Scotland needs SNP MPs at Westminster to stand up for Scotland’s interests.

“Only the SNP can make Scotland Tory-free and offer a better future for our nation with independence.”
