STRONG SNP MPs NEEDED TO FIGHT AGAINST WESTMINSTER AUSTERITY

Angus MacDonaldSNP MSP for Falkirk East, Angus MacDonald is today welcoming a new poll showing strong support for the SNP across the area – while Labour’s position in the polls continues to suffer.

The Survation poll shows support for the SNP standing at 51per cent in the Central Belt – while support for the Labour Party has plummeted to just 25.1per cent.

The General Election in May offers communities across Falkirk district the chance to elect an SNP MP who’ll always put Scotland’s interests first and fight against Westminster imposed austerity.

Commenting, Mr MacDonald:

“While we are taking nothing for granted and will be working hard for every vote, this is another very encouraging poll showing the SNP enjoying strong support across the Central Belt – while Labour is clearly paying the price for their toxic alliance with the Tories over the Independence Referendum.

“It’s also clear that there is widespread support for the greatest possible devolution of powers to Holyrood. But the Westminster government simply isn’t willing to give Scotland the powers we need to build a more equal society and more competitive economy – and that is why we need a strong team of SNP MPs elected next May to hold them to account, and ensure that they finally deliver on their Vow to Scotland.

“Left to their own devices, Labour would continue with austerity. With a strong group of SNP MPs holding the balance of power at Westminster, we can ensure that Scotland’s voice is heard and use our influence positively to end austerity economics, free Scotland of Trident nuclear weapons, and secure the powers we need to build a fairer, more prosperous country.”
