Continuing to press the UK Government to provide new financial help for WASPI women affected by State Pension age changes
WASPI women have suffered a litany of failures at the hands of the UK Government. The Tories must come clean on their failure and offer proper transitional protection in the future, and compensate the WASPI generation both promptly and fairly.

That this injustice is happening in parallel with the current increase in pensioner poverty in the UK makes it abundantly clear that the Conservative Government are failing the over-60s.
I readily confirm my steadfast support for the campaign to ensure the UK Government takes the necessary action to correct this dreadful injustice.

which confirms that there are international legal routes through which Scotland can secure independence.
“The legal opinion we are publishing today reinforces and supports equitable access to
the right to self-determination of all peoples within the current Union.
They also offer robust challenge to the legally flawed judgement of the UK Supreme Court.”

Trident: Radiation Leaks
The Ministry of Defence has revealed that there have been 58 radiation leaks at Trident facilities
in Scotland so far this year.
“It seems that getting answers out of the Ministry of Defence is like trying to get blood out of a stone. When it comes to weapons of mass destruction in Scotland, it is clear that the UK Government will tell us as much as they have to and as little as they want to...."
