Scottish Political Earthquake Possible in Islands

A win for independent Angus MacNeil – who has had an average lead of 46% to 31% over Labour at previous elections – at today’s General Election would be a ‘political earthquake’ for all main political parties. 

Commenting Mr MacNeil said:

“Islanders voting today could give the three major parties the jolt they need and cause a political earthquake in Na h-Eileanan an Iar from which the tremors would be felt across the whole of Scotland.”

Looking to continue his track-record lead over Labour, Mr MacNeil said:

“I have fought several elections with Labour always in second place, my average lead over them has been 15 points with 46 points to 31 points.

“I am optimistic for today as the two-horse race tightens.

“Labour do not need a vote in Scotland to win their huge majority.

“When they are in office, they have confirmed they will retain the two-child policy which keeps families poorer. 

“Labour, like Tories again, are also pro-Brexit which has been deeply damaging to the islands’ economy with the local authority predictions stating that in the decade after Brexit, £12.5 million will be lost to the islands’ economy. 

“Every vote Labour gets here will be counted as a thumbs up for Brexit.

“Electing me as an independent candidate to represent Na h-Eileanan an Iar will shake the leaderships of the main parties like the election of Dennis Canavan did to the Scottish Parliament many years ago.

“The islands can vote strongly today for an independent voice with backbone who will stand up to any political party or any politician from Lands End to John O’Groats for the interests of the islands.
