Willie’s morning runs – Friday and Saturday

Here are Willie Rennie’s videos from his last two morning runs, posted at a more civilised hour.

On Friday, he talked about the campaign launched – and talked about how the Lib Dems are the alternative to the toxic battle between the SNP and the Conservatives.

Today, it’s less blustery and he contrasts how the Lib Dems offer changing people’s lives for the better, investing in education and the NHS, tackling climate change and unemployment People will be alarmed at the prospect of the election and beyond.

    Difficult to see how the Liberal Democrats are going to be able to make any gains with the significant extra competition for List Seats posed by Alex Salmond’s pro-independence Party standing on the Lists to provide an opportunity for SNP voters to not waste their list votes voting SNP. Of course it may also make it more difficult for the pro-independence Green Party to get elected so the Liberal Democrats may manage to hang on to being 5th largest party even if the Alba Party gain more MSPs than they do. Willie is going to have a difficult task getting a distinct Liberal Demo rat message across as the leader of the smallest Unionist Party in the Parliament in an election dominated by arguments about Independence versus continued Union.

  • Well done Willie,
    Show the positives of complete devolution and equal union. Also start communication on reducing the nationalist v unionist tensions. My cousin said your flyer has come through and it was refreshing as it highlighted everything you will do first then about yourself second. Keep it up and campaign hard

  • So I understand, the idea is parity between the nations ? So that if, for example, it was the will of Scots not to have nuclear weapons or generators on their soil, or to be dragged out of international organisations against their express will – that would all be okay under the LD vision?

    Good call in not going into electoral coalition with the Tories, I could just imagine candidates saying support the union, vote for the Tories …

    Please ease off on the superman image, Mr Rennie. You’re making me feel REALLY OLD!

    More defections from SNP to Alba. Out of the jaws of victory?

  • Another own goal just now by Wee Eck !!

    “Thousands of people have had their data leaked by Alex Salmond’s new party just hours after it launched – which could cost them as much as ÂŁ17 million”. Glasgow Herald.

  • I’m really enjoying Willie’s daily updates with policy announcements, even if they are making me feel lazy. It’s a great idea and more importantly, I’m very happy with the actual messages.

    And I know it’s another one of those easier said than done things, but is there any way of adding subtitles? It means a lot to the hard of hearing community, especially if the sound quality is interrupted by the wind. It’s also very handy for anyone watching on a muted device.

    I’m sure there are many advantages to publishing them immediately, timing them for the morning social media browse, but perhaps they can be reposted later in the day with the captions?
