Be afraid of SNP leader

Salford Advertiser - - VIEWPOINTS -

VOT­ERS in Eng­land should be very afraid of the SNP. Ni­cola Stur­geon put up a ro­bust per­for­mance at the TV Leader’s De­bate – there’s lit­tle doubt she’s a con­vic­tion politi­cian.

And her only con­vic­tion is the de­struc­tion of the UK.

I have close fam­ily ties in Lan­cashire but have lived many years in Scot­land. I have wit­nessed first-hand the con­certed growth of the SNP as it divides and rules Scot­land.

The na­tion­al­ist party’s slick PR ma­chine con­sis­tently outsmarts Labour, the Tories and the Lib Dems.

Miss Stur­geon’s cur­rent tac­tic is to pre­tend she wants is to wrap us all up in a cosy cloak of Scot­tish so­cial jus­tice.

We in Scot­land know this to be far from the truth!

Her sole plan is to black­mail whichever party she hops into bed with so she can achieve creep­ing in­de­pen­dence for Scot­land, in ex­change for SNP sup­port in West­min­ster.

Hers is a sin­gle is­sue party – the SNP cares about noth­ing but in­de­pen­dence.

Miss Stur­geon and the SNP ruth­lessly fo­cus on the pol­i­tics of di­vi­sion.

At last year’s ref­er­en­dum the Scot­tish peo­ple stopped the SNP break­ing up the UK.

So, un­de­terred by democ­racy, this year the SNP in­tends to en­sure that West­min­ster does it in­stead. Martin Red­fern Via email
