FULL STORY: Scotland will lose out by almost £3bn under May’s grubby deal with DUP

In an attempt to cling onto power, Theresa May has made a backroom deal with the DUP that will see Northern Ireland gain an additional £1bn. Scotland will receive nothing when we should be receiving an additional £3bn. The UK Government’s priorities are not the people of Scotland. Their only priorities are self-interest.

Money can be found for bombing Syria, for grubby deals with the DUP, for Trident – but not for pensioners, not for the disabled, not for our public services. Certainly not for Scotland. They are making a mockery of their own claim that the UK is a nation of equals.

While 10 DUP MPs secured £1bn for NI, what have Davidson’s Duds secured for Scotland? Absolutely nothing! They are a London mouthpiece that are acting on their lowest instinct: self-interest.
