SCOTTISH Conservative leader Ruth Davidson has said that her party would speak up for people concerned about a ‘one party state’ in Scotland under the SNP.

Ms Davidson said her party will offer a genuine “Scottish alternative” to the SNP in next year’s Holyrood elections, as she delivered a keynote speech in Edinburgh today.

She said that her party would make a direct pitch to those concerned about the SNP’s dominance of Scottish politics in the speech marking 150 days until the Holyrood election on 5 May.

Ms Davidson said: “My message to them is this: in the Scottish Conservatives, there is an alternative voice which will stand up to the SNP’s plans for separation, and constant flirtation with a second referendum.

“Here’s my message 150 days out. Scotland isn’t a one party state.

“Not while I’m around it won’t be.

“Our party has the team, the commitment, the energy, the ideas and the vision for the fight ahead.”
