Toxic Tory Election Antics Boost SNP Membership

By Reporter, The HighLand Times, Wednesday April 19 2017

SNP will stand up for Scotland.

SNP membership figures have received an additional boost as a result of the Tories political opportunism by calling a snap election.

People across Scotland have responded to the news by placing their trust in the SNP, who will always stand up for Scotland against an increasingly right-wing and toxic Tory government.

A further 573 members joined the SNP overnight on Tuesday.

Commenting, SNP MSP Mairi Evans said:

“These latest membership figures show once again that people across Scotland know that only the SNP will stand up for their interests in the face of an increasingly right-wing Tory party and ineffective and hapless Labour party.

“I’d encourage anyone who’s sick of toxic Tory governments thinking they can do what they want to Scotland and get away with it to join the SNP and to campaign to elect as many councillors and MPs as possible.

“SNP representatives will stand up for the interests of their communities at every turn.

“With two crucial elections in the next few weeks it is clear that every vote for the SNP is a vote against Tory austerity - propped up by Labour - and a vote to protect communities across Scotland.”
