We will take Labour negativity head on

Speaking at a press conference in Glasgow following the result of the Glasgow North East by-election SNP Depute Leader and Deputy First Minister Nicola Sturgeon said:

“The SNP campaign did achieve our best Westminster result in Glasgow North East for 35 years, and David Kerr’s positive campaign made progress in Labour’s safest seat in Scotland. But we were clearly disappointed by the result, and one early lesson from this by-election is clear.

“We absolutely must now take Labour’s negative campaigning and misrepresentations head on.
