The Courier & Advertiser (Perth and Perthshire Edition)
Two things we learned on the campaign trail today
1. Nicola Sturgeon accused Alex Salmond of putting independence at risk by trying to “bulldoze” his way to a Yes victory. In an interview with Sky News, she also insisted her key NHS spending pledge is only a “backstop” and funding could be even higher than proposed by the SNP.
2. The Scottish Conservatives launched their rural manifesto with a pledge to ensure communities were not left behind during the recovery from the coronavirus pandemic.
