FM Nicola Sturgeon on PM and General Election 2017 - and #indyref2
Nicola Sturgeon has accused Theresa May of using a snap general election as a chance to “move the UK to the right” and force through deeper spending cuts.
“She is clearly betting that the Tories can win a bigger majority in England given the utter disarray in the Labour party,” she said. “That means that this will be – more than ever before – an election about standing up for Scotland in the face of a rightwing, austerity-obsessed Tory government with no mandate in Scotland but which now thinks it can do whatever it wants and get away with it.”col01
