LABOUR AND TORIES DECIMATED IN RENFREWSHIRE
SCOTLAND SAYS NO TO BREXIT AS SNP SECURE HISTORIC WIN
Renfrewshire and Scotland have voted emphatically to reject Brexit – with the SNP making history by achieving the country’s biggest ever victory at a European election and securing 3 MEPs. The emphatic win means the SNP is on course to send Alyn Smith, Christian Allard and Aileen McLeod to the European Parliament. The result signals a clear rejection of Ruth Davidson’s anti-independence message – with her party matching their worst election result since 1965. It was also a disastrous night for the Labour party – who recorded their worst ever performance in an EU election securing less than 10% of the vote. Commenting, SNP MP for Paisley and Renfrewshire North Gavin Newlands, said: “The people of Scotland have made sure their voices have been heard – this is a resounding victory for the SNP and another emphatic rejection of Brexit. “This is the biggest European election win for any party ever seen in Scotland – to win 3 of 6 available seats in Scotland is simply phenomenal. “Throughout this campaign the SNP has offered a message of hope and ambition. Scotland wants to be part of an EU that allows us to travel, work and live freely across Europe. “Scotland deserves better than a Westminster system that isn’t working – it’s no wonder more and more people believe Scotland’s future should be as independent country within the EU.
