Liberals not wooing anyone

"For every 100 pounds spent by Scottish councils under the Tories, only 96 has been spent by Labour. That is a disgrace."

They also accused the SNP of narrow mindedness and said "Narrow nationalism is not our way: the little England of the Tories, or the little Scotland of the SNP. But nor is it the stultifying centralism that runs through the veins of Labour, Old and New."
