THE advertising van featuring Alex Salmond and Ed Miliband dressed as Laurel and Hardy has been dispatched by the Conservative Party.
The vehicle, which has the words “a fine mess” written across it, will visit the SNP conference in Glasgow.
Scottish Conservative deputy leader Jackson Carlaw said: “This ad-van makes clear the choice facing voters in Scotland this May.
“It is a choice between a chaotic mess under Ed Miliband being propped up by a power-hungry Alex Salmond, and a strong Conservative party looking after both the UK and the economy.
“Voting for either the SNP or Labour will achieve the same thing, and it will spell disaster not just for Scotland, but the whole UK.
“The SNP has made its feelings perfectly clear on sharing power with Labour, and Ed Miliband will need that if he’s to be prime minister.
“Anyone who passionately believes in the United Kingdom should vote for the Scottish Conservatives.”
