Statement to voters

Do the political parties say what you think? The Holyrood parties, from the Greens to the Conservatives, argue about independence, but they unite to endorse the dramatic cultural changes that are damaging our society.

Full statement

It doesn’t matter which Holyrood Party you vote for……

Kids are taught that they can choose whether to be a boy or a girl, while a flawed philosophy of education leads to a breakdown of discipline and, inevitably, declining academic standards. The state increasingly sees itself as the guardian of children, ensuring that parents are adhering to their narrow philosophy of child-rearing.

Differences between men and women are regarded as problems to eliminate rather than expressions of diversity to celebrate.

The state claims it wants to help families yet offers no help to couples where one parent wants to devote more of their time to their children.

Abortion continues unquestioned. No party opposes assisted suicide.

The breakdown of family structure is not recognised as the source of countless problems.

The value of marriage in producing stable families is dismissed as archaic.

Freedom of speech is constantly being restricted, and democracy is therefore undermined.

Have the mainstream parties learnt that they can ignore our opinions because we will keep voting for them as they trample our deepest principles? It’s time to stand up for what we believe in.

I would would challenge the cosy consensus in Holyrood, and rigorous argument would replace the monochrome virtue signalling that currently passes for political debate on many key issues.

The Scottish Family Party will stand strongly against the tide that is eroding the foundations of our society, and offer in its place a fresh, bold and positive vision of a better Scotland for all.

This statement was added by Richard Lucas, their team, or by a Democracy Club volunteer, based on information published by the candidate elsewhere.
