Did you know?

  • For every £100 spent on the public sector in England, Scotland gets more than £120. What are we doing with all that money?
  • In 2023, Scotland will get £12 billion pounds from The Barnett Formula. That is £2,500 for every man, woman and child in Scotland, or £10,000 for a family of four. In the event of independence there will have to be massive public sector cuts and tax increases.
  • The Caledonian MacBrayne ferry fleet is old and decrepit. Two new ferries are likely to cost £300m, rather than the budgeted £97m. Gross incompetence by the SNP.
  • Fort William was promised a replacement for its exhausted Belford Hospital in 1999. It has just been bumped again to beyond 2028. We deserve better.
  • The A82 along Loch Lomond is one of the most dangerous sections of road in Britain. There have been endless reviews, studies, polls, petitions, and yet nothing done.
  • There are major bridges and tunnels in rural areas all over the world - the Faroe islands are connected by 19 tunnels! We need the Corran Ferry to get a single affordable new ferry, then a fixed link to replace the ferries.
  • Scotland used to have a fantastic reputation for education. Nicola Sturgeon cried "Education, Education Education" in 2014. Meanwhile, Scottish school academic attainment levels slide and slide.
  • Scotland is the drug death capital of Europe. Not something to be proud of.
