Chris Kane says,

IMGP9304 (1)“Stirling deserves better than an SNP candidate obsessed by a second independence referendum.  A candidate whose two years at Westminster have been completely underwhelming.  Stirling deserves better than a Tory Government hell bent on more austerity and increasingly right wing policies.  The first thing I’ll be obsessing about is creating a world where food banks are unnecessary.  It should shame the SNP and the Tories that there are working families that can’t afford to feed themselves.  This General Election can be the chance for a fresh start under a Labour Government. Labour will stand up for you.  Labour will deliver a better, fairer country where everybody is rewarded properly for a hard day’s work and where a home to rent or buy is affordable. Stirling deserves a local champion who will fight for the many, not the few.  If elected, I’ll always put you first and I will work tirelessly to make you proud.  Stirling deserves nothing less.”
