Reacting to Keir Starmer saying ‘Thatcher was right’, Mhairi Black SNP MP said:
“People in Scotland will be appalled that Keir Starmer is taking his lead from Margaret Thatcher, who left lasting scars on our communities.
“Under Starmer, the pro-Brexit Labour Party has lurched to the right, and is now little more than a pound-shop Tory tribute act – copying Tory policies and quoting Tory Prime Ministers.
“Whether it’s denying Scotland’s democracy, ruling out any return to the EU, backing Tory cuts to public sector pay and benefits, attacking migration, or signalling greater privatisation of the NHS – the Labour Party has become a pale imitation of the Tories.
“With no change on offer at Westminster, it’s clear independence is the only way to deliver real change and build the strong, fair and prosperous future Scotland deserves.”

Yes yes yes Mhairi but more importantly , do you support the aim of a Scottish independence referendum at the next election ?
Or have you thrown up this smokescreen to hide that you are now in favour of putting Scottish independence on the back burner
Who cares about what Starmer says , not many in Scotland and decreasing numbers elsewhere we know he’s a Tory in control of what was once the great Labour Party that fought for council houses the NHS free education and jobs
Thatcher ‘care in the community’ – Prison. Over 3 million unemployed. 15% unemployment in Scotland. 20% unemployment NI. The only place unemployment was under 10% was London S/E. Interest rates 15%. Inflation 18%. A civil war with the miners. Privatisation and banking deregulation causing the banking crash. The Poll tax. Thatcher illegally and secretly took all the oil revenues. Shut down all facilities and industry in Scotland. Cut the Scottish budget.
Labour illegal wars, financial fraud and tax evasion. Lies about the Oil & Gas industry. The banking crash.
An Baillie in Scotland is a far right replica of Nazi attitudes
Not clapping for a MP/FM WHO HAS ADDED MORE TO SCOTS WAY OF LIFE
THAN ANY LABOUR UNIONIST HAS EVER DONE
Labour are no more than SELF SERVING TORIES
The only way to be elected to power in England/UK is to adopt Tory policies.
England is a Tory country.
