Charles Kennedy and Jo Swinson – a winning team for East Dunbartonshire
Jo Swinson today welcomed Liberal Democrat leader Charles Kennedy to East Dunbartonshire.
Charles visited Milngavie as part of his UK tour of the most winnable seats for the Lib Dems.
Meeting a group of elderly ramblers, Charles highlighted the Liberal Democrat policies to ensure dignity and security in retirement – scrapping the unfair Council Tax, increasing pensions by £100 per month and providing better care for elderly people.
Local shoppers were surprised and pleased to see Charles in Milngavie precinct, as he met residents and schoolchildren – who insisted on using their mobile phone cameras to have a picture taken with Charles.
Charles conducted media interviews in local coffee shop Touch of Asia, where staff presented Charles with a sculpture as a present for new baby Donald James. Local Lib Dem Provost Pat Steel also gave Charles baby presents on behalf of the Council group.
