The SNP has branded a partnership between duo Anas Sarwar and Douglas Ross “less surprising than being handed a festival flyer on the Royal Mile” ahead of their appearance in an Edinburgh festival show tomorrow (Friday).
The “inseparable” Scottish Labour and Tory leaders are due to take to the stage in Iain Dale’s All Talk Show today (Friday) – with the SNP branding it a “partnership that people across Scotland are sadly all too familiar with.”
The comments come following Labour’s support for Brexit, their support for Westminster control and the constant undermining of devolution, their Trump-like denial of democracy in Scotland, and dodgy council deals with the Tories.
Commenting SNP MSP Rona Mackay said:
“The Scottish Labour and Tory leaders making their Fringe debut together is less surprising than being handed a festival flyer on the Royal Mile – the dire duo seem to be inseparable.
“Ross and Sarwar already have form for teaming up – whether it be in councils across Scotland, in their support for damaging policies Scotland hasn’t voted for or for attempting to block the Scottish people from democratically choosing their own future.
“Unfortunately, theirs is a partnership that people across Scotland are sadly all too familiar with – and whilst the pair sit side by side on stage, people across Scotland will be thinking about just how indistinguishable Labour and the Tories in Scotland have become.
“The only way for Scotland to escape these damaging Westminster parties is to become a normal independent country.”
