UNDER SNP OR LABOUR ALIKE – THE WORKERS WILL BE CLOBBERED


Nicola Sturgeon has been running Scotland for just over three years, though already it feels very much longer. It was in November 2014, having valiantly fought off the challenge from, er, no one, that Sturgeon was anointed SNP leader and assumed the position of First Minister. The national rejoicing culminated with 12,000 worshippers, all convinced that the 10-point defeat in the earlier independence referendum had in fact been a moral victory, filling Glasgow’s Hydro Arena to acclaim the blessed Nicola.  At this point the SNP government is being less punitive but crucially, it has now established the precedent for increasing tax in Scotland, thereby setting the future trajectory. Holyrood is, and will almost certainly remain, a Left-dominated assembly, in which the visionless Conservatives – still anxious to distance themselves from Thatcherism – are mere padding, and where such as the Greens are able to wield power without responsibility.
