Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang says No Thanks

Cam­paign­ers in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang are en­cour­aged by the strong sup­port they have been re­ceiv­ing on doorsteps, public meet­ings and street stalls the length and breadth of the lo­cal area.

A spokesman said: “We can achieve more to­gether than we could alone is the mes­sage from lo­cal sup­port­ers of the UK in the forth­com­ing ref­er­en­dum.

“Lo­cal peo­ple have been show­ing their sup­port in large num­bers for the NO campaign. Cur­rency, pensions and jobs have been listed as the top is­sue to come up on the doorsteps with vot­ers fed up with the lack of straight­for­ward an­swers com­ing from Alex Sal­mond.”

Cam­paign­ers have been out and about in com­mu­ni­ties across the lo­cal area pro­mot­ing their mes­sage to res­i­dents that Scot­land has the best of both worlds with a par­lia­ment in Ed­in­burgh with power over health and ed­u­ca­tion, and the se­cu­rity and sta­bil­ity of be­ing part of one of the largest economies in the world.

The team cam­paign­ing for Scot­land to re­main a strong and in­te­gral part of the UK is made up of peo­ple from all par­ties and some from none at all.

The ded­i­cated team in Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang have promised to go full steam ahead right up till the day of the ref­er­en­dum and speak to as many peo­ple as pos­si­ble. Any­one want­ing to get in touch can email ruther­glen@ bet­terto­gether.net.

Lo­cal cam­paigner and Cam­bus­lang Coun­cil­lor Richard Tul­lett said: “The level of sup­port we have been pick­ing up in the lo­cal area for Scot­land re­main­ing in the United King­dom has been fan­tas­tic how­ever we are not com­pla­cent and will be fight­ing hard to get our pos­i­tive mes­sage out to peo­ple right across Ruther­glen and Cam­bus­lang.

“There are too many uncer­tain­ties and risks fac­ing us with the prospect of sep­a­ra­tion which lo­cal peo­ple recog­nise and which I hope will lead peo­ple to say to Mr Sal­mond on Septem­ber 18th – No thanks.”

Simeone Smith of Spit­tal said: “We have spo­ken to thou­sands of lo­cal peo­ple who are very con­cerned what sep­a­ra­tion means for their fam­ily, with things like how sep­a­ra­tion will af­fect things like our en­ergy bills and the cost of the weekly shop.

“Cur­rency and pensions are top on the list of con­cerns for folk in the area. Peo­ple rightly want to know what will hap­pen to their pen­sion and what cur­rency we will be us­ing should the na­tion­al­ists suc­ceed in tear­ing apart the UK. There will be no let up and our team will be out cam­paign­ing hard for a suc­cess­ful No vote come Septem­ber.”
