Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today said that the Lib Dems are gaining ground in the Highlands with their campaign to end the constitutional division by stopping Brexit and stopping independence.
As he campaigned in Newtonmore and Fort William, Willie Rennie said the SNP are worried about the rise of the Liberal Democrats because the the party are offering a brighter future in contrast with the SNPs campaign for another divisive independence.
Mr Rennie said:
“The constitutional division over Brexit and independence that has dominated the political agenda for years has pushed so many important issues down the agenda.
“With the support of the Highlands we can make Brexit stop across the UK and stop independence too.
“It’s clear that the SNP are worried about the rise of the Liberal Democrats. That’s because we have a positive agenda to stop Brexit, stop independence, invest in education and mental health and to tackle the climate emergency. And we can build that brighter future with a dynamic leader Jo Swinson.
“That is in stark contrast with the SNPs campaign for another referendum which would divide our country again.
“Only by voting for the Liberal Democrats will we be able to end the constitutional division in our country.”
