THE leader of the Scottish Conservative Party has outlined his plan to stop Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP becoming Scotland's biggest party at the 2021 Scottish election.

Jackson Carlaw told Express.co.uk that the Scottish Conservative Party will replace previous policies as they shift their focus to encouraging and rewarding entrepreneurship in Scotland. Mr Carlaw outlined his desire to offer the Scottish people a credible alternative option to Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP.  

Mr Carlaw said: "On the domestic agenda of Scotland, I am there to stop Nicola Sturgeon to become the largest party and to offer Scotland an alternative as Scotland’s largest minority party and a party of Government.

"I have made clear that we are not there yet.

"We have got a lot of work to do.

"In some cases to lose some policies from the past which were appropriate when we were facing the recession of a decade ago but actually don’t encourage entrepreneurship and reward it in 2020."

He continued: "So we need to get our policy offering in order.

"I am confident that when we do we will be able to give the people of Scotland something different to vote for.

"That will be our whole campaign, a campaign on the well-being and the future of Scotland.

"Not a campaign about more constitutional division."  

During the same interview with Express.co.uk, which took place before the coronavirus pandemic, Mr Carlaw slammed Nicola Sturgeon for applying a "one size fits all" approach to Scotland's domestic policies.

Mr Carlaw stated that the SNP has used old fashioned socialist concepts during the last seven years the party has been in power, which he believes have failed the country. 

The leader of the Scottish Conservative Party said: "The SNP will have been in power for 14 years by next May.

"7 of them under her predecessor Alex Salmond, 7 of them under Nicola Sturgeon.

"Those first 7 years were a pro-business friendly Government and a degree of working across the Parliament.

"Particularly in the first term of office they were in during 2007-2011.

"You contrast that now with a far less imaginative, one size fits all, old fashioned west of Scotland socialist approach to everything.

"It is failing!"
