Voters in Paisley should use the upcoming European election to send a message to Theresa May that “Scotland has had enough of being ignored”, SNP MSP George Adam has said.

The SNP launched their European campaign on Thursday 9th May as postal ballots arrived with 750,000 voters across Scotland.

May 9 is also Europe Day, which celebrates peace and unity in Europe.

Paisley’s MSP George Adam said:

“This is by far the most important European election in Scotland’s history.

“Renfrewshire voted to Remain in the EU by 65%, along with the rest of Scotland voting overwhelmingly to remain in the EU; yet we face being dragged out against our will with no clarity on what Brexit actually means. What we do know is; Brexit will be bad for Scotland – with fewer jobs, fewer opportunities, and households right here in Paisley left worse off.

“On May the 23rd by voting SNP, people in our town can send a clear and unequivocal message to Theresa May – Scotland will not stand for Brexit and we deserve better than a Westminster system that isn’t working.

“Scotland has had enough of being ignored. We have already proven ourselves as world leaders in many areas – minimum pricing for alcohol, ambitious and radical climate change goals, and progressive policies for social and ecomonic change to name but a few – so I want Scotland to continue this trend on the world stage.

“Scotland’s future lies in Europe. A vote for the SNP is a vote to make clear Scotland says No to Brexit.”
