Humza Yousaf will today take to the streets of his Glasgow constituency in an attempt to ‘make the economic case for independence’.
Pamela Nash, chief executive of Scotland in Union, said:
“There is no positive economic case for leaving the UK.
“If Humza Yousaf has honest conversations with people in Glasgow he will tell them that independence would reduce the money available for our NHS and hit the poorest the hardest, and that we’re stronger together as part of the UK.
“But frankly given the cost-of-living crisis, the NHS waiting times crisis, the funding crisis facing community services, and the climate crisis, his constituents will wonder why on earth he is banging on about independence. It’s time for the people’s priorities, not the SNP’s.”
