Sneak Preview of new Party Political Broadcast: Scottish version #whyIamin

And here’s the Scottish version of the new broadcast, with a section featuring Willie Rennie arguing that Scotland needs to stay in the UK and the UK needs to stay in the EU.

He said in an email to members:

The European elections might be just round the corner but the Conservatives are flirting with exit from the EU. Labour won’t lift a finger to keep us in Europe and the SNP’s independence plans gamble with our EU membership and threaten jobs at home.

The message we are sending to Scots in this broadcast is clear. Only one party is protecting jobs by working to keep Scotland in Britain – and Britain in Europe. That party is the Liberal Democrats.

To secure the economic recovery and get more Scots into work we need strong Liberal Democrat voices at Holyrood, Westminster and in Brussels.

The broadcast is very good, I think, getting a simple, positive message across very effectively. As always, it could do with more women in it, just wanted to flag that up. I also find it incredibly amusing that both leaders are virtually identically dressed which I’m sure happened entirely by accident.  We’re not supposed to be into this uniformity thing and it is kind of funny that they look like twins. A lesson for the next time, perhaps?
