My Scotland (a response to the Scottish Sun)

My Scotland will be an independent Scotland where people succeed not on who their families are or which family they were born into but on their ability.

My Scotland will be a democratic Scotland where every vote counts, where there is no unelected second chamber or unelected head of state.

My Scotland is a Scotland where people don’t rely on food banks to feed their family and being foreign is not a crime.

My Scotland is a Scotland where the ability to learn is not based on the ability to pay.

My Scotland is a Scotland where social justice and fairness are at the heart not the bottom.

My Scotland is a Scotland where freedom of expression is encouraged.

My Scotland is a Scotland where the media are honest and trustworthy and not propaganda arms of the government.

My Scotland is a Scotland where young men and women are not sent into illegal wars.

My Scotland is a Scotland where everyone is valued.

My Scotland is a Scotland where politicians represent the people , not themselves or the party.

In my Scotland my children will have the same life chances as all other children regardless of colour, of ethnicity, of wealth, of education.

My Scotland will be a Scotland which is an example to the world of tolerance, of religious and sexual freedom, of truth and justice and of hope.

My Scotland.
