Ochil Campaigning

The SNP's Youth and Student wings descended on Ochil on Saturday for some campaigning. It went really well, and we got a lot of ground covered. According to Cllr. Keith Brown we also managed to run across no less than five Labour Councillors from the area - including the Clackmannanshire Provost Derek Stewart (pictured) - none of whom were out on the stump campaigning.

We finished off the day at the Tillicoutry Burns Supper, where we were entertained by a number of speakers and made very welcome.

Although the purpose of these workdays is to further the cause of independence and to boost the SNP's chances in the upcoming elections, I always relish the chance to meet new people and see new places. And, as I've explained to the incredulity of my family and friends, we don't get paid for it (or get travel expenses Dad!).

Some of the members of the YSI and FSN get ready to party after campaigning!
