From SNP Media:
The SNP today said that the final days of the election campaign showed that Labour and the Tories remain “as thick as thieves” after the leaders of both parties refused to acknowledge that the people of Scotland have a right to determine their future.
After interviews on BBC Andrew Marr and Radio Clyde, in which Douglas Ross and Anas Sarwar both struggled to defend their anti-democratic position, SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:
“As ever Labour and the Tories are thick as thieves when it comes to blocking the kind of progress for Scotland that people want to see.
“The failure of Labour to change their ways as they cling to the same anti-democratic stance as the Tories will be deeply disappointing for many – and shows they have learned no lessons from their past as they do Boris Johnson’s bidding.
“The SNP is entirely focussed on getting Scotland through and out of the pandemic and into recovery, in contrast Labour and the Tories seem entirely focussed on stopping the people of Scotland making a choice about their future, if that is what they voted for.
“It’s same old Tory and Labour pact, all over again.
“For experienced leadership, a real focus on recovery and the chance to choose a better future, when the time is right, it has to be both votes SNP this Thursday.”
