A lot has changed in the world since 2014, but one thing that has stayed the same is the Unionist Project Fear.

Let's take a look back at some of their best moments from #IndyRef1👇
In 2014 Scottish Labour argued that independence could lead to a 30% increase in your weekly shop.

Today as part of the UK, Scots face rises of up to 344%

Better Together claimed that independence could lead to an increase in household bills by £189 a year.

Today as part of the UK, Scots face rises of £1,300 a year.

In 2014, the Unionist camp argued that Scottish oil would run out.

Today as part of the UK, Scottish oil and gas producers are making 'extraordinary profits' and are expanding production.

£5 billion could reduce every household bill in Scotland by £1,992 ⤵️
In 2014, Better Together warned independence could lead to 'an economic minefield where problems could implode at any time'.

It turns out that was a perfect description of the Union of 2022.

It's time to put Scotland's future in Scotland's hands #Indyref2023 🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿
The Tories in 2014 recognised and respected Scottish democracy.

Today, they see the Scottish people as something to be ignored.

🏴󠁧󠁢󠁳󠁣󠁴󠁿 #ScottishIndependence is an overwhelming and immediate priority for the people.

The failure of the Scottish Government to implement successive electoral mandates from the people to progress this aim has been deeply damaging to both the Indy cause and the welfare of the people of #Scotland.

📝We're all equal in ALBA.

ALBA Women & Equalities Policy ⬇️

"The ALBA party recognises that by dint of birth and happenstance, we are not all created nor do we live our lives as equals.
📝 "Scotland’s history involves multiple injustices where chance or privilege have dictated outcomes. Those days should by now be past. This modern world we inhabit can surely arrange to cater for all without loss to any.
📝 "The Scotland ALBA strives to create, envisions a level playing field where we can become truly equal to each other and where everyone’s rights are respected and protected, but, vitally, not at the cost of others.
