Focus on now

The SNP government’s focus on what we do not need – namely more constitutional change – is costing the people of Scotland in terms of the services upon which we all depend.

Yes, mistakes happen. Sometimes a target can be missed. But the shortcomings of this government are becoming endemic.

It seems almost every week another NHS Scotland target is missed. The evidence of the failings of our once proud education system are piling up. And now it is becoming clear that our emergency services are also being mismanaged. Yet still the Nationalists cry: “Give us more powers and we will show you what we can do.”
