Pro-Union voters should ‘come together’ and back the Scottish Conservative on Thursday to avoid referendums on the EU and the UK next year, Banff and Buchan candidate David Duguid said today.
Mr Duguid echoed a call from party leader Jackson Carlaw urging those who want to preserve the United Kingdom to join forces against Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP.
The call comes as party activists on all sides embark on the last stages of campaigning before voters go to the polls on Thursday.
Mr Duguid said 2020 can be a year of re-runs of votes on EU membership and Scottish independence – or it can be a year of ‘getting Brexit sorted and focusing on the things that matter’.
Voters in Banff and Buchan have a clear choice on Thursday.
A vote for the SNP means more division and another two referendums next year.
A vote for the Scottish Conservatives means we can get Brexit sorted and move on.
Nicola Sturgeon is prepared to put Jeremy Corbyn in Number 10 – despite believing he is unfit to be Prime Minister.
The SNP leader has also made clear she will demand another referendum as early as Friday.
I think the majority of people in Banff and Buchan want to see both our governments focus on the things that matter – on raising standards in education, investing in our NHS, improving transport links and tackling crime.
We have a chance this week to end the division on Brexit and move forward. We can also stop Nicola Sturgeon and her obsession with breaking up the UK.
I would urge all pro-Union voters to come together and back the Scottish Conservatives at this election – no other party is strong enough to stand up to the SNP.
This is a 2019 General Election Campaign press release.
