‘COME TO SCOTLAND’: SNP Offer Open Door To Migrants
The SNP and Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon have been busy trying to ‘restart the debate’ on Scottish independence. It appears that part of the route they see an independent Scotland taking is to throw open the door to mass migration. The sustainable growth commission – which was set up by the SNP to look at future economic prospects has recommended that incentives be offered for people to ‘Come To Scotland’.
It argues that Scotland can be one of the most successful small economies in the world providing an economic boost that is equivalent to £4100 per person.
Callum Walker, Chairman of UKIP Scotland, disagrees:
The SNP wanting to flood Scotland with immigrants is a false economy. The ordinary Scot will lose out and have their wages compressed. Worst yet, Sturgeon wants to bribe migrates to come to Scotland. This money doesn’t belong to the SNP or the Scottish Government.
It comes out of the pockets of hard-working Scots and should be spent delivering services for them. Not giving immigrates a ‘Golden Hello’. If we are to have a sustainable Scottish economy, we should be encouraging talented Scots to stay in Scotland. Not importing labour from abroad. For centuries, ambitious Scots have sought their fortune in London or abroad. Now we need them to stay in Scotland and build their businesses.
For this, we need an inviting entrepreneurial economy. Scotland falls far short of this with a Scottish Government that only believes in creating a socialist republic in the north of Britain. Fortunately, the SNP’s independence ‘take 2’ white paper is unlikely to convince proud unionist Scots that independence is credible, but it is preparing the ground for another campaign. The continuous abuse of the Scottish Government and Parliament, by the SNP, as tools for independence is turning more and more Unionist Scots off devolution. 20 years after the opening of the Scottish Parliament there are growing calls to close it down.
