According to the Tory chairman Greg Hands, Scotland is set to be a crucial battlefield in the upcoming general election. He noted that voting for the Conservative party in Scotland could prevent Sir Keir Starmer from becoming the next Prime Minister. Mr. Hands mentioned that the SNP is currently in a weaker position due to the police investigation into its finances and this presents an opportunity for the Conservatives to gain more seats in the next UK election, likely to be held in the coming year. He further added that the SNP has displayed a commitment to incompetence and mismanagement in public services and finances, something that even the Labour Party would envy.
