Lib Dems: tide is turn­ing against SNP

Rutherglen Reformer - - Election Special -

The Lib­eral Democrats hit the cam­paign trail at the week­end with a mass leaflet­ting and door knock.

They were out in Fern­hill and Spring­hall, as well as the Gal­lowflat area try­ing to drum up sup­port.

Can­di­date Robert Brown said: “Peo­ple are be­gin­ning to look crit­i­cally at the SNP’s per­for­mance.

“Lib­eral Democrats have been cam­paign­ing steadily for months but, in re­cent weeks, we have no­ticed a dif­fer­ence. Quite a few peo­ple who voted in the ref­er­en­dum for in­de­pen­dence are telling us they have changed their mind.

“And quite a few peo­ple who voted SNP have told us they won’t do so again be­cause they don’t think the SNP have per­formed well as a gov­ern­ment.

“Peo­ple just don’t un­der­stand why the SNP made such a fuss about hav­ing more pow­ers for the Scot­tish Par­lia­ment but now seem wholly re­luc­tant to use the new pow­ers.”
