Food prices soar as Tory cost of living bites

Independence is the only way to protect Scotland from the ongoing Tory-made cost of living crisis, as food prices continue to soar across the UK.

Food inflation jumped to 15.7% last month compared with April 2022 - an increase of 15% on March 2022.

Commenting, David Linden MP said:

"Households across the UK continue to suffer from the ongoing Tory-made cost of living crisis.

"As a result of Westminster rule, Scotland has been forced to watch on as the Tories crashed the economy, allowed energy bills to skyrocket, and imposed a hard Brexit on us against our will.

"And with a Pro-Brexit Labour Party cheering them on every step of the way, there are no clear signs of a revival.

"However, for Scotland, there is an alternative. By taking control of our own affairs, we could mitigate the damage imposed on us by Westminster and finally forge our own path.

"At the next general election, voting SNP is the best way to beat the Tories in Scotland and deliver a strong team of SNP MPs that will get the best deal for Scotland.

"However, there can be no doubt that independence is the only way to protect Scotland from the ongoing Tory-made cost of living crisis - and rid ourselves of Westminster rule for good."
