Following revelations that several of the latest raft of big-money donors to the No Campaign are also financial supporters of the Conservative Party, the SNP have said this highlights the Tory roots of the anti-independence campaign.
The donors include; a former spy, a Highland laird, a stockbroker involved in the Barings bank collapse and the chairman of an English Premier League club.
Commenting, Angus Robertson MP said:
“This list of donors to the No campaign is further proof that the anti-independence campaign is Tory to the core.
“It is led by a Tory Prime Minister and bankrolled by leading Tory party donors.
“No wonder traditional Labour supporters and grassroots members are turning their backs on the No camp which is simply a Tory front organisation funded by the same super-rich individuals who fund the Conservatives.
“Only a YES vote offers a better future with the opportunity to build a fairer and more prosperous nation.”
