Trade Bill

It is beyond belief that at a time when the economy is being hit hard by coronavirus the UK Government is preparing to inflict further job losses by walking out of talks with the EU in less than six months – even if no trade deal has been agreed.

This week, the UK Government queued up to block an attempt to protect our NHS from a post Brexit trade deal with Donald Trump. I have been contacted by dozens of Inverclyde constituents, this past few week, regarding the Trade Bill and many are deeply angry with plans to privatise the NHS, reduce food standards and attack animal welfare.

Just like his notorious Brexit referendum pledge for £350m a week for the NHS, Boris Johnson has shown that his promises are not worth the paper they are written on.

It’s never been clearer that decisions about Scotland should be taken by the people who live here – not an out of touch Tory Westminster government.
