Slogan already in use by NHS Scotland
The No campaign must scrap its plan to use the phrase 'Better Together' as it is already the name of an NHS Scotland programme, the SNP says.
Glasgow Cathcart SNP MSP James Dornan believes the people of Scotland deserve honesty on how the No camp sees a future Scotland - not hiding behind a phrase already in use because they have nothing new to offer.
The anti-independence parties want to use the slogan 'Better Together' but this is already the name of Scotland's patient experience programme, which supports NHS Boards, frontline staff and patients.
Mr Dornan said:
"The No Campaign, which says we are better together with a Tory Government, must scrap its plan to use that slogan as it is already in use by NHS Scotland.
"The anti-independence parties owe it to the people of this country to present them with a vision for Scotland's future - not copy slogans already used because they have nothing new to offer.
"Scotland deserves to know exactly what the No camp's vision is - not make comments about more powers short of independence, refusing to put something concrete on the table.
"The anti-independence parties' campaign is failing at the first hurdle, with U-turns about its name and wanting to use slogans already in use.
"The SNP has always had a clear, positive vision for this country. We truly believe the people of Scotland are best-placed to make the decisions that affect their lives.
"We are campaigning to get the powers this country deserves to enable us to build a Scotland that will be fairer and more prosperous than today."
