Too many uncertainties and risks facing people
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.”
