Quotes

"Alistair Carmichael's Conference on the New Scotland will be an opportunity to heal the divisions by bringing together everyone with an interest in moving our country forward. It is such a good opportunity as he is planning to hold that Conference within thirty days of a no vote."
"The news that overall student debt rose more sharply in Scotland than the rest of the UK will no doubt surprise many. We have previously warned that the SNP's decision to reduce grants and replace them with loans could have a particular effect on those who need grants most. This increase in student debt is light-years away from the SNPs manifesto promise to scrap student debt altogether."
"Liberal Democrats are the party of a stronger Scotland. Our local MPs and MSPs have always had a reputation for working tirelessly for the constituencies they serve. That is something they have done with great vigour throughout this referendum campaign, talking to people in their communities and setting out the facts in their road to the referendum events."
"This must be a difficult day for the doom-mongers. The steady economic recovery continues thanks to a combination of the hard work and ingenuity of the country and the economic plan delivered by this government."
