Independence Is Normal

Scotland is a country, and like any other country it deserves to get the governments it votes for. We are one of the world’s wealthiest nations – richer per head than France, Japan and New Zealand.
We have a diverse, modern economy with huge energy resources, a world-class food and drink industry, a booming tourism sector, advanced manufacturing, financial and business services and we are at the cutting-edge of the industries of the future such as life sciences.
But our future is not in our hands. It is in the hands of Tory governments we don’t vote for, and a broken Westminster Parliament, where Scotland’s voice is increasingly ignored and sidelined.
The Tories haven’t won a general election in Scotland since 1955, and yet time and again, Tory governments are imposed on Scotland. These Conservative governments have pursued policies rejected by the people of Scotland which have damaged our country.
But this time it’s really serious.
