Today will see new representatives elected to both the Scottish and Westminster Parliaments, to represent Glasgow Anniesland Constituency. The Scottish National Party believes it is time for Scotland to become a normal sovereign state, with equal status to others. The British State has been a failure for the Scottish people, and has resulted in us being separated from playing our part in Europe and the world. We hope you will support us in our campaign for Scottish Independence.
The best Government for Scotland can only come from Self-Government for Scotland.
|The SNP is a democratic left-of-centre political party committed to Scottish Independence. It aims to create a just, caring society in the mainstream of modern Europe by releasing Scotland's full potential as an Independent Nation.|

The SNP have challenged Labours candidates in Anniesland to state clearly and unequivocally where they stand on air traffic privatisation. Shadow Transport & Environment Minister Mr Bruce Crawford MSP said:
The Anniesland constituency lies under the Glasgow Airport flight path, which makes London Labours foolhardy plans to sell off the National Air Traffic Services (NATS) - effectively privatising the system - an important by-election issue. The UK would be the only country in the world to operate a privatised air traffic control system."

New Labour Fails Scotland
Standing up for Scotland. That's what the SNP do best, and why more and more of us are choosing to vote SNP. New Labour promised us the earth, but failed to deliver. The SNP has always delivered for Scotland. We will deliver for Anniesland too. Grant Thoms and Tom Chalmers make a great team. They'll put Scotland first and make your voice heard.
