This week marks a decade since the financial crisis of 2008, where UK taxpayers were forced to pay billions to bail out the banks – after their reckless profiteering left the financial system on the verge of collapse. Ten years might have gone by but millions of families across the UK are still being made to pay a heavy price as a result of Tory and Labour austerity cuts.
My first recollection of door knocking for the SNP was during a wintry Council by election in Broughty Ferry in the mid 80s. While the SNP won, support for independence was a long way behind support for our candidate, Ken Guild. Indeed, at 11-12%, it is interesting that now support for independence regularly exceeds four times that level. Perseverance pays!
