Charles Kennedy stated, “Great to be out again in Bathgate with local activists” “Lots of people concerned that planned tax raises from Labour would just be the first of many should they be elected”. “People are asking why should Scotland be the highest payers of tax in the UK”. “Which by voting for anyone else but the Scottish Conservatives, will be the result”. “More people telling us tonight they will be voting Conservative for the first time”. “The country needs a strong opposition and voter understand only the Scottish Conservatives will provide this”.
