🚨 FM Nicola Sturgeon will convene an emergency summit in the face of rising costs.

There are going to be so many peoples mental health hitting the peak, and old people will be either eat or heat , its a disgrace 😑😑😑

What happened to the nit for profit energy company, is it to late to implement before winter? Yet Another hammering of folk by Westminster brutal policies. Well past time for indyref2

In 2017 the Scottish government pledged to set up a publicly-owned, not-for-profit company to sell gas and electricity to customers at low prices by 2021. Why has this plan not come to fruition?

What is also going to happen is a rise in house fires, deaths from CO, and from freezing to death. If we get a winter like 2010/11, can you imagine?People won’t put the lights on and go back to candles. Dodgy heaters are going to be used As so many houses don’t have fires/wood burners, crazy behaviour will happen when it gets cold. People are going to die.All for profit for the Tory party pals.

Again David I didn't see a reply toy comment from you yesterday ? The snp promised to create a national energy co that was public owned for zero profit . What happened ?

So 10 grants of £500 to fight poverty? Doesn’t seem like enough to me. When will we start seeing jobs from the companies set to make the most profit from this project? Or will everything be manufactured abroad and maintained by vessels from other parts of the country. More local jobs and industry please.

Stewart Anderson Can you please action, Friockheim Park

Gee me the £500 to tackle my poverty!

❌ Both Tory leadership hopefuls have demonstrated their contempt for Scottish democracy.

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 While on their flying visit, they should reflect and accept the wishes of the people of Scotland - for an independence referendum.

The Union is a figment of Tories imagination......300 year old myth......the Tories think the Union is going to be the glue that holds everything together, they have no clue not one IOTA.......the Tories, BOJO and Thatcher etc etc have done so much damage to Scotland, unbelievable the arrogance and ignorance of Sunak and Truss........the Tories think that Scottish people are to be ignored......happy to spread lies to the people down south, The English subsidise the Scottish people .....this is a favourite to be banded about, not a grain of truth, we will be a million times better off away from the constraints of Westmonster CARPE DIEM..........

A few friend are going to welcome them tonight

🏴󠁧󠁒󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 The Scottish National Party (SNP) Scottish Government is spending £3 billion this year to help reduce the cost of living for families - and will do as much as it can to support people.

πŸ’· Until independence, the key levers over energy and finance lie with Westminster - it's time for them to take real action.

Overall a good story. Would have been more complete had you stated from which budget the £2 billion was vired and what will be the consequences. Would be good if you could state that here.

Yes and if you find the missing 1000s the police are investigating they can get a lot more...🀬🀬🀬🀬🀬

Youll have your pretendy referendum only Mr.Doogan.When are you going to make a start to improving Scotland instead of failing Scotland.

You can stick your yes posters up your rear end.

πŸ‘‡ The Scottish National Party (SNP) is clear what action should be taken to help families with rising bills:

❌ Cut VAT on fuel
⚑️ Cancel the energy price rise
πŸ’· More money to those who need it

πŸ₯€ Better late than never from the Labour Leader. Westminster must act now.

What happened to the plan for a Scottish not-for-profit energy company? This was voted on at SNP Conference and promised by NS. Where is it?We understand that this isn't easy to do, but Scotland has a nationalised water company and has recently nationalised rail services. Scotland has a National Investment Bank, so a lot of things which are hard to do have been done. Why has the SNP failed to deliver the promised energy company? Why is this not even being discussed publicly anymore?Anything that gives money to shareholders, even indirectly, with no compensation to the state for that money, is simply throwing good money after bad.

Is the SNP going to fund the thousands of people that have loved ones needing electricity 24 7 7 days a week just to stay alive....I wonder

VAT should be reduced on everything and removed completely from some things, like clothes, for example…

How Dave , whilst a great supporter of yes Scotland and Scottish govt , aren't you just a little bit ashamed to post this quote considering your party promised to create a public energy supplier for the people of Scotland? A nationalised energy non profit company that would half energy bills overnight? That was in 2017 yet I've heard no more of it and you've been in power quite some time now ?

VAT should have been scrapped on everything when we left the EU because it was an EU tax which we didn't pay before we joined. I believe in the EU and voted to Remain but why would I continue to pay membership of a golf club six years after my fellow golfers had decided to leave and I couldn't play there.

Standing charges should be removed immediately on pre-paid metres.
