Why would any Scottish state pensioner even consider voting Conservative in the General Election ?  The Tories will remove the current protection for annual increases in state pensions and rob many Scots pensioners of their winter fuel payments. Given half a chance, they’ll also continue to cut the Scottish Parliament’s funding until we can no longer afford to provide free bus passes and free prescriptions. Don’t be like a turkey voting for Christmas – vote for the SNP and independence, not just for yourself but for your children and grandchildren.
