Sturgeon pointed out that “independence is the responsibility for your own decisions, and not for decisions like Brexit to be forced on you.”
During the election campaign in Britain, the head of Scotland has already stated that Truss could be a disaster for the country if he wins in the last round. At the time, Sturgeon accused Truss of campaigning around the priorities of individual members of the Conservative Party. Later, the head of Scotland criticized the new government’s plan to support the UK economy .
A few weeks ago, the new head of the British Treasury, Kwazi Kwarteng, presented in Parliament a “support plan” for the country’s economy, which implies a large-scale tax cut. He announced the cancellation of the planned increase in corporate income tax to 25 percent from the previous 19 percent. After that, the yield of five-year government bonds in the UK rose to the highest level since 2008 of 4.6 percent, which means a decrease in demand for British debt securities. The Truss government faced a flurry of criticism.
