You will know that the campaign to keep Scotland strong in the United Kingdom, Better Together, was launched earlier today in Edinburgh.
I was there with campaign chairperson Alistair Darling, the former Chancellor, to hear 40 proud Scots, men and women, young and old, set out why they believe we should continue to work in partnership with our neighbours on these small islands. Those 40 people who helped launch Better Together represent the hopes and concerns of real Scots all over the country, and they put forward a strong case for the United Kingdom.
But I want to hear more of those voices, and I want to hear Labour voices. Better Together is a cross-party campaign but Labour is at its heart, and I believe it will be Labour voters who decide the future course of our country. In the coming weeks and months, you will see Scottish Labour make a distinctive, positive case about how social justice is best achieved by working together.
I am asking you today to sign up as a supporter on the Better Together website.
