In a little over two years Scotland will face a momentous decision. We will be asked to vote in a referendum that will either see Scotland leave the United Kingdom or renew our partnership with England, Wales and Northern Ireland.
The United Kingdom is partnership that has endured for three centuries and over the course of which we have shared in its benefits. As a nation, Scotland is stronger, safer and economically better off through partnership with England, Wales and Northern Ireland. We stand taller in the world for being part of a Union that is greater than its individual parts.
Together we have faced down shared dangers and stood shoulder to shoulder in defence of liberty and freedom. And we have been able to count upon each other through the good times, but - much more importantly - through the bad.
It is for these positive reasons I am supporting the Better Together Campaign.
You can find out more about the campaign at www.bettertogether.net.
I would also recommend that you show your support for Conservative Friends of the Union at www.conservativefriendsoftheunion.com. For the Scottish Conservatives there is no more important cause than fighting to defend Scotland’s place in the United Kingdom and I am determined to do all I can as your local MP to protect the best interests of Scotland. I am keen to hear your views and invite you to contact me via the details displayed elsewhere on this site.
