Scottish News RECAP: Rishi Sunak announces General Election

Prime Minister Rishi Sunak has issued a statement outside 10 Downing Street calling a General Election for July 4. 

Don’t miss a moment, keep up with news from across the country right here with The Scotsman’s daily live blog.

Recognises the cynicism within politics at the moment, which again, is rather putting it lightly.

Honestly, if he plays Things Will Only Get Better right now, it would be hilarious.

“A vote for Labour.. is a vote for change”

Claims Labour has a long term plan for Britain.

Says that Labour can “return Britain to the service of working people”.

Worth noting - he is giving his statement inside, and there is no music

Sir Keir Starmer is now giving a statement...

Calling the election “a moment the country needs and has been waiting for”

For those hoping to vote, do make sure you are registered to do so!

You can register to vote right here.

Well now... this is an exceptionally good point.
