Darling at Tory conference to get his instructions

Commenting on reports that the leader of the No campaign, Alistair Darling, will be at the Scottish Tory party conference which Prime Minister David Cameron is also attending, Welfare Reform committee member SNP MSP Annabelle Ewing said:

"This is bad news for the No campaign. Many Labour voters will be appalled at the prospect of Alistair Darling going along to the Tory conference to get his instructions.

"The reality is that the No campaign is led by the Tory government at Westminster, which the people of Scotland didn't vote for and is inflicting cruel cuts on working families and vulnerable people.

"In attending the Tory conference, Mr Darling is proving that the No campaign prefers bad government from Westminster to good government with independence.

"Only by voting Yes can the people of Scotland get the government we vote for, every time."
