The image shows a man standing behind a lectern, appearing to give a speech or presentation. The man has a beard and is dressed in a smart brown blazer, white shirt, and red tie. His hands are open in a gesturing pose which might suggest he is making a point or inviting a question. The background is a plain and vibrant red. The lectern features a slogan: \"Straight talking. Honest politics.\" This slogan is typically associated with political campaigning or messaging, indicating that the scene is likely from a political event or conference.

You don’t need independence a Labour government will save you

“Their failed immigration system which is not working for British people.”

Racheal Reeves

As an independence supporter, especially one that’s previously a member of the Labour Party, I hear this a lot.

So let’s have a quick look at what senior members of the Labour Party themselves say about marginalised groups and how they will treat them when (and given the tories’ recent polls, it will be when) they come to power.

Firstly Keir Starmer on the body autonomy and the right of those under 16’s to seek medical services (i.e. birth control, abortion etc.) without parental consent.

Yes, you heard him right, “We all know what it’s like with teenage children. I feel very strongly about this. This argument [that] children [can] make decisions without the parents is one I just don’t agree with at all.”. Keir Starmer would be keen on overturning Gillick Competence. A ruling that says that competent children should be able to make their own decisions about their health. A ruling that has safeguarded children from family violence or disowning, because they are sexually active or they seek to be vaccinated against COVID-19.

What about immigration? Surely Labour supports immigration?

And it’s not just Starmer who thinks there are too many immigrants. The Shadow Chancellor Rachel Reeves also thinks so.

So Labour is against Gillick Competence and immigration, what about unions? surely Labour must support the unions?

… A Labour MP was sacked for supporting ordinary working people not wanting to take a real terms pay cut. Labour can’t even say the strikes aren’t popular, a recent new statement poll put support at around 50%, and even higher with Labour supporters.

No, No, I don’t think the Labour party will support people in Scotland. I think we need an independent Scotland, and we need it irrespective of who’s in number 10.
