It's Time For Reform

“2021 marks the beginning of a new chapter, not just in my life but in the political debate. We can’t be stuck looking backwards, managing decline and hoping something will change.

Scotland has a rich history of entrepreneurs, inventors and thinkers. We have the collective strength and endeavour of the Union and the freedom of devolution to deliver a prosperous and exciting future for everyone in Scotland.

We have been divided and struggling for too long. The future begins now, a fresh vision that will reform and unite Scotland, a vision that will deliver for the people.”

Michelle Ballantyne
Leader Reform UK Scotland

Why Reform Scotland?

Politics in Scotland desperately needs Reform. We will demonstrate the critical role Scotland plays in Britain as well as the benefits to Scotland of the Union. This is the best of both worlds. We will steadfastly defend the right of free speech; that basic right to respectfully disagree and support the individual and family.

We will offer a positive, safe and tolerant alternative to lockdown, closed schools and closed minds. We will grow the economy faster, promote the self employed and small business owners. We guarantee taxes would be no higher than any other part of the UK and offer opportunity and security for Scotland. We promise to trust the people to live their lives as best they can.

The SNP’s agenda is increasingly unchallenged in Scotland. This lack of challenge is stifling creativity. The Conservatives, Labour and Liberal’s in Scotland have all failed to halt the SNP’s grip on the country. We will offer a genuine Reforming challenge to the divisive Nationalists who increasingly control lives. It is time for Reform.

What do we stand for?

We are Pro UK

The Reform Scotland Party is a pro-UK party. Britain is much stronger united together; financially, culturally, militarily and overall security. We believe that the reasons for uniting Britain in 1707 are as relevant today as they were then. We will make the positive case for the Union but we will also reach out to SNP supporters who are worried by the direction of Scotland and want to challenge the consensus. We are pro Scotland and pro Britain.

WE ARE PRO FREEDOM

It was said until very recently ‘we are a free country.’ Now increasingly that is under question. The basic right of freedom of thought and worship is fundamental. We will challenge the SNP’s proposed ‘hate crime’ bill. The right to disagree in a reasoned and respectful manner is fundamental and not negotiable in a free society.

We will champion personal choice, community response and local networks. We believe individual’s families know what is best for them and we seek to increase that choice and minimise regulation and red tape.

We will examine safe and responsible ways of ending the lockdown that are evidence based. Those who are vulnerable and feel unsafe should shelter, those who are less at risk; children, students and the young should go out respectfully and reasonably if they wish. Society must get back to normal and our basic freedoms renewed. The cost to the economy, children’s education, the opportunity of the young, on health and mental health of the population and the choice of the many is simply too great. We will offer a plan that challenges the consensus of all the other main parties.

We will offer a positive, safe and tolerant alternative to lockdown, closed schools and closed minds. We will grow the economy faster, promote the self employed and small business owners. We guarantee taxes would be no higher than any other part of the UK and offer opportunity and security for Scotland. We promise to trust the people to live their lives as best they can.

The SNP’s agenda is increasingly unchallenged in Scotland. This lack of challenge is stifling creativity. The Conservatives, Labour and Liberal’s in Scotland have all failed to halt the SNP’s grip on the country. We will offer a genuine Reforming challenge to the divisive Nationalists who increasingly control lives. It is time for Reform.

WE ARE PRO REFORM

Reform is needed in Scotland across the board

Tax and the Economy

We guarantee taxes will be no higher than the rest of the UK

We will forensically review public spending. The bang for the buck is simply not there despite much higher spending than England Scotland slips down the education and health league tables. Services are expensive and not good enough.

We will raise standards and outcomes

Health

We need much better outcomes. It is unacceptable that the NHS has cancelled so many operations, large and small over the lockdown. We will use technology to ensure better and quicker access to GP and test results. We will prioritise shifting the lockdown backlog and we shall examine procurement, waste and insist on best practice to drive better outcomes for you the patient.

Education

Scotland a generation ago had one of the finest education systems in the world. No more- this has been an area of abject failure by the Scottish Government and will be one of our urgent priorities. We will focus on community choice, traditional approaches to teaching, competitive sport, respect, discipline and excellence. Schools must re-open. The damage to our young is immeasurable in terms of friendships, learning, life chances and also the strain on families coping at home

Amidst claims of malicious prosecutions; abuse of state power; misuse of public funds; corruption at the heart of government and a parliament so broken it doesn’t even know when it is being lied to, we have school failings pushing Scottish public service ratings to a ten-year low and our economy shrinking by -19.4%. Surely it's time for Reform!
