Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today declared that the Liberal Democrats are the progressive alternative in this election. The comments come as Theresa May is set to visit Aberdeenshire today.
Commenting Mr Rennie said:
"This upcoming election is a chance to change the direction of this country.
"If voters are left with a choice between the divisive nationalist SNP and the equally damaging hard Brexit Conservatives its no wonder people are feeling dismayed at the current state of politics. These two options are as bad as each other. But there is another option and Liberal Democrats offer a progressive alternative future. A future that would keep Scotland at the heart of the UK and the UK at the heart of Europe.
"The SNP are seeking to tear us out of our UK family while the Conservatives are seeking a hard Brexit which will paralyse our economy and leave us disconnected from our family in Europe. It is the Liberal Democrats that are speaking for the majority.
"Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote against a hard Conservative Brexit and a divisive second independence referendum and is a vote for a more open, tolerant and united Britain."
