Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has used a visit to Dingwall to say the Liberal Democrats can beat the SNP’s Westminster leader and end the constitutional division in this country.
Visiting a Highland salmon processing plant, Mr Rennie said:
“The Liberal Democrats are giving it everything in the last few days of the campaign to win Ian Blackford’s seat from the SNP. It’s going to be a close contest with lots of people backing us to stop another independence referendum which Nicola Sturgeon wants to hold in a matter of months or even weeks.
“Traditional Conservative and Labour voters are backing the Lib Dems to win this time as they are determined to end the constitutional division in this country.
“A win in the Highlands would be a body blow to the SNP’s campaign especially as it would be a win from their Westminster leader. Craig Harrow has a great chance of winning and stopping another independence referendum.”
