Rennie slams SNP for stoking up grievances

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has attacked the high degree of arrogance and conceit of SNP claims that they speak for all of Scotland - before people have even cast their vote.

In a speech this evening, Nicola Sturgeon will claim to have created a new "test of legitimacy" of any government in a bid to stoke up more division and put forward a second referendum.

Commenting, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:

"This shows a high degree of arrogance and conceit that the SNP believe they have won the election already before the polls have even opened. They wrongly argue that SNP is for all Scotland and all of Scotland is SNP.

"The Liberal Democrats have done more for Scotland than the SNP, delivering powers for Scotland, tax cuts, pension rises and more jobs so people have to decide who they believe will be a more positive influence in any UK government.

"In each of our eleven held seats, voters face a clear choice between the Liberal Democrats, who offer stability, unity and decency. Or the SNP, whose MPs will spend all of their time seeking grievances and divisions to put forward a second referendum. In each of our eleven held seats, the race tight but the choice is clear - people must back the Lib Dems if they want to stop the chaos and the uncertainty of the SNP."
