    The price to pay for a referendum NO.

    The Tory war on Scottish families

    Families with children will lose an estimated 960million a year across Scotland, with lone parents worst hit.

    THE shocking price the poorest Scots families could pay for Con-Dem welfare cuts is revealed today in a bombshell report to Holyrood.

    Families with children will lose an estimated 960million a year across Scotland, with lone parents worst hit.

    The study reveals that:

    ● Single parents could lose about 1800 a year;

    ● Couples with dependent children face cuts of 1400, and;

    ● Disabled claimants can expect to lose an average 2000 a year.

    See the full report in The Scottish Daily Record HERE




    Well folks, there you have it, and that is just Scotland alone.

    Can you imagine how will these draconian cuts will effect you elsewhere in Britain ?

    Scotland is now going to pay for having the temerity of wanting independence, and now the Tories are rubbing our noses in it on top of that referendum defeat.

    Roll on the election in May !

    Scotland has always been used as a place to try out new extremes of government, and I am sure that the people who voted "yes" in the referendum will think very carefully about where they will put their cross in May.

    I just said that in the post above this one.

    Scotland has always been traditional left-wing Labour and now that the Labour party under Miliband and Murphy seem to be staying on a right-of-centre, New-Labour course, the Scots are rising up against this.

    From a Northerner, your perception of the trend in Scottish politics is on the ball Angie.

    You are dead right that most of the people who voted FOR independence, ( the 45 percent ), and who were traditional Labour supporters have now switched to the SNP because of New-Labour's lurch to the right and how it got into bed with the Tories during the referendum campaign.

    Even as a Labour man from way back I am also one of these 45 percent and I will be voting SNP on May 7th.

    This makes me sad, but I will not be voting for Labour again until it proves to me that it has truly gone back to it's roots.
