VIDEO: MP puts ‘No Thanks’ case at Rothesay public meeting

Argyll and Bute’s Liberal Democrat MP Alan Reid put the case for a No vote in next week’s referendum at a public meeting in Rothesay on Wednesday night.

Mr Reid outlined his reasons for backing the case for Scotland remaining within the Union before taking questions from members of the audience at the Rothesay Pavilion cafe.

Those questions from the audience of around 30 people - most of them confirmed No voters, but with a small but vocal Yes presence and one or two undecideds too - covered the Better Together campaign’s tactics, the visits to Scotland by the three UK party leaders, the implications of a No vote for island communities such as Bute, defence, pensions and benefits and more.
