SIR Tom Farmer last night became the latest high-profile Scottish businessman to endorse the SNP campaign for a second term at Holyrood.
The founder of the Kwik-Fit car maintenance chain, who gave 100,000 to the SNP's 2007 election campaign, said he would be backing the SNP leader Alex Salmond and his team.
"Over the past few weeks, I've been asked many times who I support in this campaign," he said. "The answer is clear - I support the re-election of Alex Salmond and his SNP team. They have been in office during a difficult time, and they have done their very best for Scotland. I want them to have the opportunity to carry on their good work."
