The Great Tory Cover Up

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Friday May 19 2017

The Tories are too ashamed to talk about their policies.

The Scottish National Party has pledged today to shine a spotlight on the policies the Tories are too ashamed to talk about.

The party challenged Theresa May to justify the Tory assault on the poor, pensioners and public services.

Scotland's First Minister and SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon said:

“Now more than ever, it’s vital to have strong SNP voices to stand up for Scotland at Westminster.

“Otherwise the Tories will think they have a free hand to implement the damaging and deeply unpopular policy agenda they are too ashamed to talk about.

“What we’re seeing in this election is the great Tory cover-up.

“They know their policies hurt the poor, pensioners and our public services, so they’ve decided not to talk about them.

“The Tory manifesto robs Peter to pay Paul - stealing free school meals to pay for education, cutting winter fuel to pay for social care, the list goes on.

“So, Theresa May needs to explain today why under her government inequality is set to rise at its fastest level since the 1980s.

“The Tory campaign in Scotland is silent about their cuts to family incomes, cuts to public services and the number of children who will have to grow up in poverty if the Tories get their way.”
