SNP Will Work to Rebuild Trust as Tories Face Wipeout

Following the result of the Rutherglen and Hamilton West by-election, SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:

“The SNP has run a positive, energetic and engaging campaign – but sadly we were not able to deliver the result we hoped for.

“As the Tories face the prospect of losing all their seats in Scotland, with a devastating result that saw them lose their deposit, it’s Sir Keir Starmer’s pro-Brexit Labour Party that benefitted from support from Tory voters.

”It’s undeniable that the Westminster cost of living crisis was the top issue for people on the doorsteps and it’s now imperative that the UK government finally wakes up to deliver meaningful support ahead of another potentially crippling winter.

“I’d like to pay tribute to Katy Loudon, who has been a superb candidate who brought the positive SNP message to doorsteps every day, and to her campaign team who have engaged with thousands of people over the course of the campaign.

“The SNP will work hard to ensure we are earning, and re-earning, the trust of the people of Scotland in this seat that has switched between the SNP and Labour at every election since 2010, and across the country.”
