Letter of 10 December from John Nicolson, SNP Candidate, Ochil and South Perthshire.
We have just two days to go now until the big day. Two days to stop Brexit, to protect our NHS and to lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street.
First and foremost, I want to thank you all for your continued commitment and relentless hard work. It’s been a mammoth effort so far by all involved.
Despite the wind and the rain, in the last week alone we’ve delivered our final leaflets across the whole constituency as well as a letter to our supporters encouraging them to turn out on Thursday and vote for the SNP.
Wherever I go in Ochil and South Perthshire the message from voters is loud and clear; we in Scotland must have the power to choose our own future, not Boris Johnson and his Dickensian cabinet of liars, spivs and charlatans.
Every day I speak to people from across the political spectrum who are in agreement with us; from lifelong Conservative voting farmers horrified by the dangers of a hard Brexit, to Labour voters desperate to put an end to a decade of punishing Tory austerity. The one thing they have in common is that they’ll be voting for the SNP come Thursday.
But it’s going to be close.
As you know, the key to winning here in Ochil and South Perthshire is ensuring we get OUR vote out on the day. If today’s weather is anything to go by then we’ll need to work hard, together, to do so. Every vote will count.
None of us want to wake up to Boris Johnson grinning smugly outside Number ten on Friday the 13th.
I ask each of you to consider the following three questions (and please reply either to this email or by calling the office on 01259 726663):
1. Are you voting on Thursday?
2. Do you need a lift to the polling station?
3. Are you able to help your local branch on the day? (transport, knock up, etc).
John Nicolson, SNP Candidate, Ochil and South Perthshire.
