The SNP has said Labour’s election campaign in Scotland is “on the verge of total collapse” as two candidates are sacked in one day and a former Labour MSP has backed the SNP.

SNP Deputy Westminster Leader Kirsty Blackman said it was now “beyond doubt” that only a vote for the SNP can beat the Tories, escape Brexit and put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands.

Tonight Labour was forced to sack their candidate for Gordon, Kate Ramsden, after having earlier sacked their candidate for Edinburgh South West, Frances Hoole. Last night,  Labour Deputy Leader Tom Watson became the latest Labour MP to resign. While last Friday, Labour’s election campaign suffered another blow when former Labour MSP and current Glasgow councillor Anne McTaggart quit to join the SNP. 

YouGov polling in Scotland has the SNP on 43%, the Tories in 20% and Labour and the Lib Dems trailing behind on 15% and 12%.

Commenting, Kirsty Blackman said:

“Labour’s shambolic election campaign in Scotland is in free fall - and on the verge of total collapse.

“After briefing their own supporters that Scotland is a lost cause - their candidates are now dropping like flies, while Labour MPs and supporters are quitting in their droves.

“It’s no wonder people in Scotland have absolutely no confidence in Labour, when they are willing to completely ignore Scotland and impose a devastating Brexit against our will - just like the Tories.

“It’s now beyond doubt that only a vote for the SNP in Scotland can beat the Tories, escape Brexit and put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands - not Boris Johnson’s.”

Re-elect Brendan O'Hara to represent Argyll & Bute



Re-elect Brendan O'Hara for Argyll & Bute on December 12th

In this General Election, we have the perfect opportunity to start shaping a new future for Scotland as an independent nation, within the European Union.

Like every other part of Scotland, Argyll & Bute voted overwhelmingly to remain in the European Union and that is a message I have delivered time and again to the Tories in Westminster. Yet despite the economic disaster that leaving the EU will mean for Argyll & Bute, Boris Johnson’s Tories are still determined to drag us out of Europe against our will.

An SNP victory here will tell Mr. Johnson that we reject his Tory hard-Brexit plan and that we are taking control of our own future.

Only with your financial help, however, can we ensure that every person behind every door in every town, in every village and on every island across this vast constituency gets to hear that positive SNP message of a new future for Scotland.

So please, give what you can. Any donation however small or large will make a real difference and help us secure a decisive win in Argyll & Bute and return Brendan to Westminster, to continue fighting for the people of Argyll & Bute and start building that new Scotland.

Thank you
