Tory governments that Scotland hasn’t voted for since 1955 have imposed austerity, Brexit and now preside over the worst cost-of-living crisis in decades.
In 2014, the UK government said energy prices would fall. Now, they’re soaring higher and higher – pushing more families into poverty.
We asked people in Glasgow for their thoughts about Liz Truss becoming Prime Minister…
As an independent nation, Scotland would have all the powers and resources to tackle the cost-of-living crisis.
Liz Truss can change her mind, but you can’t. It’s always one rule for Tory Prime Ministers, and another rule for the rest of us.
Scotland hasn’t voted Tory since the 1950s, but we keep paying the price for Brexit they imposed against our will. Watch our latest People of Yes film, with people from Inverness explaining why they back independence.
If you look at the Tories and the Westminster system, I don’t see much hope in that. I want a better society – and Scottish independence is the quickest way to at least work towards that.
We were taken out of the EU against our will and after that, Scotland was simply not listened to anymore. Now, the way to deal with it is for Scotland to become independent and come back into the European Union.
