The SNP’s Achievements


The magnificent Queensferry Crossing road bridge – paid by Scots money alone

What is the Scottish Government doing for me?         (Updated  February 2021)

No government gets uncritical support especially one elected to govern a nation of hyper-judgmental, compulsive nit-pickers. We’re quicker to criticise than praise. Still, the SNP has a lot of accomplishments to choose from if you don’t like the policies they espouse.

Continually under attack by well-armed enemies of civil rights and democracy, I thought it fair to reproduce their achievements since they took office. We have an administration that has powers hobbled, deliberately so to keep control elsewhere, yet it has achieved a considerable amount never imagined by the rag-bag of opposition parties.

Scotiaphobes will dismiss the lot. But there’s one thing they cannot deny: the SNP altered Scottish political life and discourse in a profound way – for the first time in 300 years we have a political party prepared to fight every inch to protect Scotland’s interests. We are empowered as individuals. Our voice matters. We’re heard, not treated as the herd.

I’ve split the list into categories to pick ‘n mix as you require.

As with infamous PFI contracted schools, no matter how good or bad you think life is in Scotland under whatsoever political party, we do not own our country. We rent it.

We pay direct and indirect taxes, and huge interest on debts to the UK Treasury we didn’t incur. Ownership comes when full independence is restored.

A brazen advert:
