SNP should stand aside for Labour if they cannot handle crises, says former PM

If the SNP could not solve problems in Scotland over the past 14 years, they should stand aside for the Labour Party, former prime minister Gordon Brown has said.Speaking at a drive-in rally of supporters in Glasgow, Mr Brown talked up new Labour leader Anas Sarwar while urging voters to turn out for the party on Thursday.The former prime minister pointed to what he described as failings of the Scottish Government in employment, healthcare and education as reasons to vote for Scottish Labour, whom polls predict will still be in third place come next week.

Who is Greta Thunberg? [Video]

Who is Greta Thunberg?

Greta Thunberg is a Swedish environmental activist, who has been campaigning since the age of 15.She is well known for challenging world leaders on their approaches to the climate crisis, famously telling them at the 2019 UN Climate Action Summit, “How dare you!” over not taking strong enough action to tackle climate change.Most recently, she has turned her attention to the COP26 UN climate conference to be held in Glasgow this November. Thunberg has said she does not believe Scotland is a world leader on the climate crisis. Scotland’s Climate Change Act 2019 states a desire to reach net-zero emissions of all greenhouse gases by 2045, but also has existing plans to drill for fossil fuels in the North Sea.Thunberg says: “I think that maybe summarises the whole situation we are in - the fact that these kind of countries who are actually hosting [COP26] is planning to actually expand fossil fuel infrastructure, to open up new oil fields, and so on.”Other young climate activists have risen to continue shining light on the issue. Sixteen-year-old Holly Gillibrand leads Fridays for Future in Scotland, and 18-year old Isra Hirsi, the daughter of US congresswoman Ilhan Omar, is one of the co-founders of the US Youth Climate Strike.
