A million Scots live in poverty and vote for Westminster
The Scottish poverty information unit published a report today that
estimates some 850,000 Scots live in poverty, out of a total population of
just over 5 million people.
Scotland is a RICH country, the worlds 7th highest GDP, but it continues
to pay Westminster more money in taxes than it ever receives back.
London denies this as it always has, but Westminster will NOT provide
access to the figures to show they are robbing the Scots blind.
And yet Scots continue to vote a blinding obedience to a failed socialist
party that now does anything to keep RIGHT WING votes.
