First Minister Warns of Heavy Price of a Big Tory Majority



Scotland’s First Minister Nicola Sturgeon MSP will today warn that the Conservatives will do “anything they want” to Scotland if the party makes sweeping gains in the general election.

"The more Tory MPs there are, the heavier the price Scotland will pay.

"They have already cut £2,900 million - 9% - each year from the Scottish budget.

"They are hitting family incomes hard by cutting and removing child tax credits.

"They want to remove Scotland from the European single market, which will cost thousands of jobs.

"They have done this with a small majority. Now they want to crush any opposition.

"The bigger the Tory majority, the more they will think they can do anything to Scotland and get away with it.

Kenneth Gibson added:

The SNP will give Scotland a strong bulwark against austerity, the blind pursuit of a hard Brexit and a complete disregard for Scotland's interests.
