Share This Article:
One year on, the Scottish National Party dominates the political landscape of the entire nation. Nicola Sturgeon is adored by so many north of the border despite her shocking record as First Minister. Her MP’s and MSP’s are regularly embroiled in scandal after scandal; the NHS is in crisis, with nurses threatening to leave their jobs due to chronic mismanagement. Scotland could once boast that it had the best schools in the world - our children are now leaving primary school unable to read and write. Ministers are throwing money at vanity projects rather than protect council budgets. Flood defence budgets have been slashed. College places have been cut. University grants for the poorest have been scaled back dramatically. Food banks are on the rise whilst the SNP refuse to increase council tax.

Put simply, the SNP have failed Scotland.
