Better Together

The campaign to keep our United Kingdom is the most important we could ever fight.

Better Together was an amazing group. The atmosphere at campaign HQ in Edinburgh was electrifying.

I've met so many lovely people and the sense of shared purpose was something I've never experienced before. I'll remember it for the rest of my life.

We all owe a huge thank-you to everyone who worked so hard for this great result.  In particular, I would like to thank our own Rob Manning who has been tireless in his support for the Union and led the way in supporting our Scottish friends.

Now we must continue to work together for a better Scotland and a stronger, happier UK.
