Flagrant, obscene waste (Robert Smith)
Before you cast your vote on Thursday, have a look at the Scottish government building in the picture below.
This is just one of the many government buildings in Edinburgh. It is in addition to the £400 million Scottish Parliament (10 times over budget).
We are a small nation of less than five million people. We still have slums and poverty and squalor – yet our exalted leaders have taken it upon themselves to build these massive ivory towers, temples of power.
For those of you who believe in devolution and independence, who like me, feel a national pride and want a fairer deal for Scotland, did you vote for this? This flagrant, obscene waste. This triumphalist governmental vanity?
Even more laughable since the Scottish Parliament, within the EU, is classed as a regional council, a powerless pseudo parliament that simply rubber stamps its orders from Brussels.
The Lib Dems, SNP, Labour and even the Conservatives, support this nonsense.
I don’t think you do. Would you allow these people to set your tax rate and trust them to spend it wisely? Would you let them rack up debt with borrowing powers? I don’t think so.
UKIP is the only party which sees this idiotic waste and will do something about it.
We will dismantle the Scottish European Regional Council. We would return Scotland to its rightful place as a sovereign nation within the United Kingdom. Vote for sensible government. Vote UKIP.
