Should government act honestly and fairly?

Our Values
Our values in government will be fairness, honesty and equality of opportunity.

Our duty will be to make our Parliament work by giving it the powers it needs to create a stronger economy with new jobs, to wipe out poverty, attack crime, and provide the world’s best education and health services.

Our decisions will be determined by fairness not cronyism, honesty not fiddled figures, and equality of opportunity not jobs for the boys.

We face big challenges but we will not shirk from them and we will not deviate from these principles. We will deliver good government by working with business, trade unions, the voluntary sector and, where appropriate, with other political parties in partnership for the national good.

Delivering for Scotland
We want to have better health standards and shorter waiting times, less crime and more police, smaller classes and more education.

We want to see our public sector staff valued and our school and hospital buildings in public hands. We want social justice and economic prosperity by getting our rich country to work for the people of Scotland. And what we want, we can deliver.

Scotland is one of the richest countries in the world. So, like every other normal country and nation, we want to use the money raised in our own country on the priorities of our own country. We want to see our economy grow and prosper for the benefit of the people.

We want more people to be in more jobs to increase the tax base and decrease reliance on benefits. Only with a fast growing economy can government raise more in taxes without increasing the burden on the individual. We want Scotland to work for economic success so that economic success works for Scotland.

We want more people to be in more jobs to increase the tax base and decrease reliance on benefits. Only with a fast growing economy can government raise more in taxes without increasing the burden on the individual.

We want Scotland to work for economic success so that economic success works for Scotland. We want to release our potential.
