Independence paralysis leaves Scotland adrift

Commenting on today's Programme for Government, Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:

"I am tired of this First Minister and her government misappropriating my vote to remain as justification for another divisive independence referendum.

"The choice between two unions has always been a false one and it has led to a paralysis of government which has starved all other policy considerations of oxygen.

"The number of children waiting more than a year for first line mental health support has trebled, drug related deaths in Scotland are the worst in the whole of Europe, passengers in my constituency still can't get to work because of cancelled or overcrowded trains.

"If the First Minister and her party continue to present just one answer, wholly unsuitable to all the public policy challenges we face, then her government deserves to fall."
