Tommy Sheridan

Former MSP and co-convenor of the Solidarity Party, Tommy Sheridan is bringing his Hope Over Fear pro independence tour to Turriff this week.

Making the case for a Yes vote in the September 18 Referendum Tommy Sheridan will be joined at the event by Linda McDonald from the SNP & local businessman Ewan Smith.

Tommy will put the case forward that an independent Scotland should

  • Bring the energy companies and the banks into democratic public ownership
  • Tax the rich and big business so that they pay their share
  • Ensure the oil and gas sector are publicly owned  so that the profits made were invested back into jobs and services
  • Increase the minimum wage to a living wage
  • Scrap zero hour contracts and poverty pay
  • Create jobs and proper apprenticeships for our young people
  • End the anti union laws and protect workers’ rights
  • Scrap Trident
