Scotland Needs Champions – SNP Launch Election Campaign

Scotland needs championsThe people of Scotland want more than just a politician they want local and national champions.

Unveiling key themes in the SNP General Election campaign at an event in Edinburgh East – one of the SNP’s key constituencies – SNP Leader and Scotland’s First Minister Alex Salmond said that SNP MPs will be local champions working for people across Scotland as he told voters more nats means less cuts.

In a speech which addressed the dissatisfaction across Scotland with Westminster politics and Scotland’s role in a hung parliament and warned the London based parties over their plans to cut Scottish jobs and services, Mr Salmond put Scotland’s communities at the heart of the SNP campaign.

Mr Salmond said:

“At this election, more than ever before, Scotland needs champions. “And so on polling day, we are not just choosing MPs in the House of Commons. We are choosing national champions to stand up for the people of Scotland.

“National champions and LOCAL champions, who will offer communities across our nation the voices that they need. “The London parties talk about cuts as though it was all about numbers on a balance sheet. But we know different. Behind those cuts will be real
people, real services, real jobs.  “At this election, the choice is clear. We must do all we can to protect those people, those services and those jobs.

“Thus Scotland needs champions. Now more than ever.

“The more SNP MPs elected the stronger Scotland’s position will be.

“Because at this election the message is simple.
