MADAME ECOSSE ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL IN AUCHTERARDER
The Scottish National Party's Ms Annabelle Ewing, SNP General Election candidate was joined on the campaign trail on Wednesday (28/4/2010) by her mother: Winnie Ewing, retired Member of the Scottish, Westminster and European Parliaments.
Annabelle welcomed Winnie to Auchterarder, saying:
“My mother is probably the most effective street campaigner I have ever met so I am delighted to have her here in the Lang Toon giving me a hand today."
Dr Ewing said:
“I am really pleased to be in Auchterarder to do my bit for Annabelle and of course for Tom Gray as well. Being her mother doesn't stop me saying that Annabelle is far and away the best candidate in this contest. She has the experience, the ability and commitment to be the strong local champion that the people of Ochil & South Perthshire are going to need in the coming months and years.”
The SNP's Strathallan ward council by-election candidate Tom Gray added:
“Winnie Ewing has been a hugely important figure in Scottish politics for a very long time and it is always a privilege to meet her and attend one of Madame Ecosse's campaigning master classes.”
