Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron MP has today said that Liberal Democrats are winning elections up and down the UK as he visits Edinburgh and joins local MSP Alex Cole-Hamilton and council candidates to campaign in the upcoming council election
Mr Farron said:
“Up and down the UK, Liberal Democrats have been winning by-election after by-election in council seats as people flock towards us in building a more tolerant and united country.
“This year we are competing in more wards than ever before in Scotland and are looking to win more seats than ever before.
“The campaign this May builds on the party’s record-breaking wins in council by-elections across the country since the last general election, gaining more than 30 seats across the UK, including against the SNP in Scotland.
"People are fed up of a failing Labour party, an increasingly right wing Tory Government and a constitutionally obsessed SNP and are now choosing Liberal Democrats to stand up for them and put their needs first before anything else.”
