£500 – that’s the cost of the Tories

£500 – that's the cost of the Tories.

The average household in Scotland is £500 worse off since the Tories came to power.

The average household income today stands at £24,336. Back in 2009/10 – the last year before the Tories came to power but in the immediate aftermath of the global financial crisis household income was £500 higher at   £24,846.

The Tory economy isn't  working for Scottish families.

Tory tax cuts  for wealthy individuals and big business have ensured that any economic gain has been focused in the hands of the priviliged few.



We would do things differently.

A Labour government would ensure those at the top pay their fair share, and create an economy that works for the many, not the few.
