Scotland is facing a new age of Tory austerity

And so it begins. We knew this crisis had to be paid for, but you might think Boris Johnson’s government would wait until we had turned the corner before cutting back. Sadly not.

But when it comes to debating policy the choice is pretty limited. Gone are individual resolutions from branches. Instead we have six themed policy positions composited from … Read more Why we need a full and open debate on independence
