St Andrews day survey results
By Eleanor Campion
On St Andrews day over 20,000 Scottish members received a survey asking how they thought 38 Degrees is doing.
It’s great to know so many think it’s doing really well. There was lots of support for the campaign to trip up Trump,
“I’m glad you’ve been supporting tripping up trump
Thank heavens that someone is taking action on Dreadful Donald Trump.”
But many stressing there’s still lots more work to do!
Other popular issues were to stop changes that force people into homelessness. Standing up for the NHS and the environment are also what many of us are concerned about in Scotland. The first round of NHS offline events took place in England last week, all 11 of hosted by 38 Degrees members. The New Year holds in store hopefully lots more of these events and it’s great to know lots of us are keen to get involved and host similar events in Scotland.
Holding Scottish Politicians to account in the May election was very important. Many felt these issues should be on the economy, tax dodgers, electoral reform and the environment. Lots suggested wanting to see their politicians take action on Scottish National Heritage “Scotland’s Natural Heritage – our landscapes in particular – these need safeguarding from inappropriate development.”
