This election will decide the future of our country.

0:00:020:00:04

We are voting not just for ourselves,

0:00:040:00:05

but for future generations.

0:00:050:00:07

Nicola Sturgeon offers the same old answer for everything -

0:00:070:00:11

another referendum.

0:00:110:00:13

She's playing a broken record.

0:00:130:00:16

After ten years of the SNP in charge,

0:00:160:00:18

people want answers on the issues that matter.

0:00:180:00:22

But the uncomfortable truth

0:00:220:00:23

is that while Nicola Sturgeon promised

0:00:230:00:25

the 2014 independence referendum

0:00:250:00:28

would be a once-in-a-generation opportunity,

0:00:280:00:31

for her, it has become an obsession.

0:00:310:00:34

In our NHS, more than 90,000 patients

0:00:350:00:37

had to wait longer than four hours at A&E in 2016.

0:00:370:00:41

How will we cut waiting times?

0:00:410:00:43

Nicola Sturgeon's answer is another referendum.

0:00:430:00:47

Nurses' pay hasn't risen in seven years,

0:00:470:00:50

leaving many struggling to make ends meet.

0:00:500:00:53

How will nurses get a better deal?

0:00:530:00:55

Nicola Sturgeon has no answer, apart from another referendum.

0:00:550:01:00

In our schools, parents are being asked to fill in for teachers

0:01:000:01:03

because of staff shortages.

0:01:030:01:05

While our children's education suffers,

0:01:050:01:08

what has Nicola Sturgeon got to say?

0:01:080:01:10

You guessed it - another referendum.

0:01:100:01:13

We have 4,000 fewer teachers,

0:01:130:01:16

a gap between the richest and poorest pupils

0:01:160:01:18

that hasn't got any smaller,

0:01:180:01:20

bigger class sizes, and declining results.

0:01:200:01:23

Nicola Sturgeon's answer?

0:01:230:01:25

Another referendum.

0:01:250:01:27

Local services like care for the elderly and schools

0:01:270:01:30

will be hit with cuts of £170 million this year alone.

0:01:300:01:34

What answer does Nicola Sturgeon have

0:01:340:01:36

for our elderly and for our young?

0:01:360:01:38

Another referendum.

0:01:380:01:41

Under the SNP, the number of Scots paid less than the real living wage

0:01:410:01:44

stands at nearly half a million people.

0:01:440:01:46

How will we tackle this crisis for workers and families?

0:01:470:01:51

Let's ask Nicola Sturgeon.

0:01:510:01:53

Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP think only about another referendum,

0:01:530:01:57

when the focus should be on our schools and hospitals.

0:01:570:02:01

And if Nicola Sturgeon wins this election,

0:02:010:02:04

she'll use it to push for another referendum.

0:02:040:02:07

The only way to stop the SNP is to vote Labour on June the 8th.

0:02:070:02:11

Don't risk letting SNP MPs back in by voting for the Tories.

0:02:110:02:15

Scottish Labour offers real answers which will bring real change

0:02:170:02:20

to the country, and increase Scotland's budget by billions

0:02:200:02:24

to improve our schools and hospitals.

0:02:240:02:27

Nicola Sturgeon offers the same old answer for everything.

0:02:270:02:30

She's playing a broken record.
