Angus MacNeil SNP candidate speaking just a week before the election said: “It has been enjoyable going through the Islands and hearing the views of voters from Barra to the Butt of Lewis. On the doorsteps people understand that the choice in this election is between choosing for ourselves what kind of country we want to live in or allowing others to make that choice for us.
“ The recent Ipsos MORI poll for STV shows support for the SNP at 44% with the Tories in second place 18% behind. Only by voting for the SNP can Scotland help deprive the Tories and Boris Johnson of the victory they so badly want.
“In Scotland the Scottish Government has spent billions mitigating the worst of the austerity imposed by the Tories and unchecked by a weakened Labour Party fighting among themselves rather than for the people they are supposed to represent.
“In Westminster, the SNP will continue to make the case for free TV Licenses for the over 75’s and to prevent a future Tory Government from further increasing the pension age. We will also argue for the UK Government to match the ambitious climate targets set by the Scottish Government and against any renewal of Trident.
“I would encourage everyone to vote on December 12th and only a vote for the SNP will ensure we get the fairer, more equal Scotland we want.”
