The Better Together campaign to keep Scotland part of the United Kingdom set out its stall in Corby.

Members of the cross party campaign were in the town centre yesterday (Monday, November 12), handing out leaflets and talking to residents.

Ross Macrae, a member of Better Together, said: “Many people in Corby have family and friends in Scotland and the town is known as Little Scotland. We believe everyone deserves a say and our aim is to get everyone involved in the debate.

“Among the people we have been talking to there has been very little support for an independent Scotland. We want people in Corby to get involved and talk to their family and friends, join the debate and help keep Scotland a part of the United Kingdom.”

Christine Emmett, the Conservative Party’s candidate in Thursday’s Corby and East Northants by-election, turned out to support Better Together.

She said: “Corby has a rich Scottish heritage, of which the town is rightly proud, but the United Kingdom will stay stronger by staying together.”

Andy Sawford, Labour’s candidate and Jill Hope for the Liberal Democrats, were also expected to join Better Together campaigners.
