In the Herald today with an irritatingly bossy choice of language by Pam Duncan-Glancy or Bol, we read:
SNP ministers have been told to “urgently” roll out a minimum income guarantee after new statistics revealed soaring numbers of households repeatedly applying for crisis grants.
In August, the Scottish Government launched a public consultation on its plans to set up a minimum income guarantee.https://www.heraldscotland.com/politics/19683387.snp-told-accelerate-minimum-income-guarantee-plans/
Is this a Labour policy?
By July 2020, Keir Starmer had refused to back the idea: https://labourlist.org/2020/07/starmer-hasnt-backed-universal-basic-income-heres-why-he-is-right/
And in his current ‘10 Pledges‘, it’s still not there: https://keirstarmer.com/plans/10-pledges/
Has Duncan-Glancy checked this demand with the Anas Sarwar, the other half of the new Labour Starwar Alliance?
Neither Starmer nor Sarwar will back this leftist policy.
