Willie Rennie was there to meet Nick Harvey to put the case for keeping the Scottish RAF bases, which are vital to their local communities. He also met Vince Cable to add weight to the campaign for the Green Investment Bank to be located in Edinburgh.
“I am down in London today to meet with UK Liberal Democrat Ministerial colleagues on two specific issues.
“I am continuing the work that Tavish Scott and Michael Moore have started, pressing the case for keeping both RAF bases in Scotland open. The bases are both vital not just for Scotland and the communities they serve but to the safety of the UK.
“I am also here to campaign on bringing the Green Investment bank to Scotland. This will keep Scotland at the forefront of exciting new developments, capitalising on work already started here."I also heard a rumour that he was in our party HQ in Cowley Street. I'm hoping that, among other things, he was meeting people and putting the case for better and more relevant bulk e-mails. I note that we got one on the day he was elected leader which made no reference to that fact at all. I will let that one pass, because it did all happen quite quickly. However, I'd like to see something to members from Nick congratulating him.
