We are one of the richest countries in the world yet we have people, often those in work, surviving on supplies from food banks. One in five children live in poverty in Scotland and in some areas it is as high as one in three. Yet, our political leaders at Westminster want to spend £100bn (that's £100,000,000,000) on renewing Trident nuclear weapons.

Due to Westminster's lax financial regulation the banks got out of control and brought the economy to near collapse. Instead of making those responsible pay, the UK government targeted the most vulnerable by introducing their austerity programme and, in particular, the hated Bedroom Tax.

Is that really as good as it gets? Surely, we can do better.


There is a better way.

Come along to Caol Community Centre on Tuesday June 17th at 7pm and hear from John Finnie MSP and Colin Fox SSP Co-convenor and Yes Scotland Board member on how we could do things differently.

We would also welcome your questions and your points of view as we will set aside the majority of our time to an interactive session with the audience.

All are welcome and entry is free.
