POLICIES

£100,000,000 EXTRA FOR THE NHS AND EDUCATION EVERY YEAR

Holyrood costs a shocking £100,000,000 to run every single year.

 

By scrapping the divisive devo-assembly, that money could be far better spent on the NHS and education and begin to repair the damage done by over a decade of SNP cuts.

GET THE SNP OUT AND FIX THEIR MESS

The SNP are ruining Scotland. By contesting the regional lists and maximising the Unionist vote, we will help get the SNP out.

We will oppose and legislate to reverse their damaging, unpopular policies like alcohol price hikes, Named Persons and above all else another unwanted, divisive referendum.

A DEMOCRATIC ALTERNATIVE TO DEVOLUTION

We don't need the separate class of 129 MSPs at Holyrood. Before devolution, Scottish MPs at Westminster would convene as the 'Scottish Grand Committee' to vote on Scotland-only issues.

Post-devolution this can reconvene. We propose that it meet for two-months each year at Parliament House, Edinburgh (pictured), which housed the pre-Union parliament of Scotland.

AN EMPOWERED SCOTTISH OFFICE

We would restore the Scottish Office to its full pre-devolution role so that funding, infrastructure and services can be delivered by the UK Government directly in Scotland without the pantomime of party politics at Holyrood.

STRONGER UK REPRESENTATION FOR SCOTLAND

Scotland's number of MPs was cut from 72 to 59 because of devolution. Post-devolution, we propose that Scotland elect 74 MPs (the number elected from 1918-1950).

We support this being done on a proportional system so that the SNP stop winning the majority of seats on a minority of the vote through first-past-the-post. Unionists are the majority, and the balance of MPs must reflect that!

GIVE POWERS BACK TO LOCAL COUNCILS

Under the SNP, Holyrood has become one of the most centralised assemblies in the world, taking away powers from local councils through a series of aggressive power grabs.

We would give those powers back to local councils so we could - for example - scrap failed monoliths like Police Scotland and restore local police and fire and rescue services.
