SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon has told voters that Boris Johnson has run out of excuses for failing to act on the cost of living crisis and that Scotland can cast its verdict on the toxic Tories by voting SNP in tomorrow’s council elections.
Today (Wednesday) the SNP campaign bus – which has been criss-crossing the country over the past three weeks – will visit Edinburgh where the SNP leader will join with her Holyrood MSPs to rally support on the last day of campaigning.
Nicola Sturgeon said:
“The Tories have run out of excuses for their negligent inaction on their self-made cost of living crisis that is hammering families across Scotland.
“Boris Johnson’s utterly callous attitude to those who need help was once again exposed in TV interviews yesterday.
“The only thing that will make the Tories sit up and take notice is when they think their own jobs are on the line – and that’s why this election is so important.
“While all this is going on, the Tories are neglecting the spiralling cost of living crisis – while the SNP are focussed at all levels of government to support households through tough times.
“Every SNP councillor elected this week will stand firm against the Tories, ready to lock them out of power.
“Our priority will be supporting families through the cost of living crisis – not just in words but in action – working tirelessly for local communities and local services.
“Every SNP vote this Thursday will have that impact.
“Together we can put Boris Johnson under real pressure to act now to help families out.”
