Brown helps launch Lib Dems’ Glas­gow cam­paign

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen Lib­eral Demo­crat can­di­date Robert Brown helped launch his party’s Glas­gow cam­paign last week.

Coun­cil­lor Brown, who is also lead can­di­date on the Glas­gow list, spoke at an event along­side for­mer deputy first min­is­ter Lord Wal­lace of Tanker­ness.

The event also marked the 10th an­niver­sary of Bailie Mar­got Clark’s coun­cil by-elec­tion win in King’s Park.

Mr Brown said Scot­land is in need of a lib­eral voice at Holy­rood:“I have a strong sense that the tide is turn­ing in our favour.

“Our job is to strengthen the lib­eral voice by win­ning back a seat in Glas­gow re­gion. This is a bat­tle of ideas, based on op­por­tu­nity for all our peo­ple, the power of education and rea­soned de­bate.

“As for the SNP, re­al­ity is not re­ally their strong point.

“There would be a £15bil­lion black hole in the pub­lic fi­nances – half the cur­rent Scot­tish bud­get. Dr Stur­geon’s in­de­pen­dence brew will cure all.

“Scot­land voted to stay in the United King­dom. The SNP ap­proach is that we got it wrong so we’ll have an­other ref­er­en­dum and do it again prop­erly.

“It is time to move on from the ref­er­en­dum and get Scot­land fit for the fu­ture.”
