It's hard to imagine a more turbulent time,

0:00:030:00:07

with the decision to split us from Europe, the threat of independence

0:00:070:00:12

and an education system and NHS struggling to cope.

0:00:120:00:16

But there is hope.

0:00:160:00:18

There is one political party that is standing up

0:00:180:00:21

for a fair, decent and tolerant Scotland -

0:00:210:00:25

the Scottish Liberal Democrats.

0:00:250:00:28

We stand firmly and proudly

0:00:280:00:31

for Scotland's place in the United Kingdom

0:00:310:00:34

and our place in the European Union too.

0:00:340:00:37

We must stand together with our neighbours to boost our economy,

0:00:370:00:41

maintain our security, and protect our environment.

0:00:410:00:46

So we oppose plans to break up the United Kingdom

0:00:460:00:50

and we believe the British people

0:00:500:00:52

should have the final say on Brexit in a referendum

0:00:520:00:56

so that we can choose to stay in the EU

0:00:560:00:59

if the Conservative Brexit deal is damaging to our country.

0:00:590:01:04

Whilst the SNP and Conservatives

0:01:040:01:06

divide us on independence and on Europe,

0:01:060:01:10

we are determined to make Scotland a fair, decent and tolerant country.

0:01:100:01:17

We will invest to transform our education system and our NHS.

0:01:170:01:24

We want change and investment,

0:01:240:01:26

to create opportunity for everyone no matter what their background.

0:01:260:01:31

Scotland used to have one of the best education systems in the world,

0:01:310:01:35

but it is now just average.

0:01:350:01:38

We want to invest in colleges, schools, and nurseries

0:01:380:01:42

to get it back up to the best again.

0:01:420:01:46

The NHS is under real pressure.

0:01:460:01:48

For instance, mental health services need a step change

0:01:480:01:52

so that the million people who experience mental health problems

0:01:520:01:56

can get the help that they need.

0:01:560:01:58

People want change.

0:01:580:02:00

After all the division on independence and on Europe,

0:02:000:02:04

the Liberal Democrats offer hope.

0:02:040:02:06

It's why Liberal Democrats are winning again.

0:02:060:02:09

It's why we won against the Conservatives in Richmond,

0:02:090:02:13

the SNP in Inverness,

0:02:130:02:16

and the Labour Party all across the country.

0:02:160:02:19

We are winning because we are standing up for Scotland in the UK,

0:02:190:02:25

the UK in Europe,

0:02:250:02:27

and for a fair, decent and tolerant Scotland.

0:02:270:02:31

The Liberal Democrats are back.
