Queen’s Speech Reaction

My reaction to the Queen’s Speech, which set out the UK Tory Government’s agenda for the year ahead. People in Stirling are struggling with the cost of living crisis, and want to see real action from the UK Government to address it, not just warm words. Scotland could do so much better as an independent state within the EU, part of a global A-Team of 500 million opposed to part of this dysfunctional and outdated Union.
