Richard Leonard : Real Change for Scotland
Scottish Labour has plans for real change which will build a more secure and equal Scotland.
Leader Richard Leonard is committed to a ‘compassionate society’ where Labour will invest in the future, deliver a rebalanced economy and leave less to the market.
Richard Leonard believes the country has a real choice between Labour's plan for jobs and investment; or further austerity from the SNP and the Tories.
Richard told Scottish Labour Voice :
“Poverty is rising and the gap between the rich and the poor is widening.
“Too many people are in insecure low paid work, too many pensioners are having to choose between heating and eating, and all across Scotland our local services, like schools and hospitals, are starved of the investment they need.
“In the years ahead, we must meet the challenges of Brexit, automation, climate change, and plan for an ageing population.
“We need to face the future, not by continuing as we are, but by bringing about real and positive change.
“Scottish Labour plans to build a more secure and equal Scotland.
“We don’t need a referendum to do that.
“It is about everyone having a secure job, with a living wage of at least £10 an hour, a warm affordable home, and support for people and families in their time of need.
“We want a compassionate society where we invest in the future of all our people, and a rebalanced economy where we plan more and leave less to the market.
“There is a new choice in Scotland and it couldn’t be clearer : Labour’s plan for investment and creating better jobs; or another decade of insecurity and cuts from the SNP and the Tories.”
“We want a compassionate society where we invest in the future of all our people, and a rebalanced economy.”
