The Liberal Democrats have been “knocked out the park” and are “effectively losing their deposit” in Scotland, the Prime Minister has said.
Speaking to journalists in Edinburgh this morning, David Cameron also emphasised that a vote for the Scottish Conservatives was the only option for those serious about keeping Scotland in the UK.
Recent polls have shown the Liberal Democrats falling to as low as two per cent, while figures yesterday suggested up to 85 per cent of their 2010 voters have deserted them.
And with Labour set to do a deal with the SNP to get Ed Miliband into Downing Street, he added a vote for the Scottish Conservatives was essential for the economy and the constitutional future of the UK.
Prime Minister David Cameron said:
“The Liberal Democrats have already been knocked out the park – they’re effectively losing their deposit across Scotland if you look at recent polls.
“We’ve got a very clear message.
“If you want a non-socialist alternative to the SNP there’s only one choice, and that’s the Conservatives led by Ruth Davidson.
“For all those people in Scotland who back enterprise, who back families and who want to keep the UK together, there is a very clear choice.”
