SNP General Election Result 2015
I am writing to congratulate the Scottish National Party on the momentous and historic achievement of the Westminster general election result.
I have been following the campaign in Scotland avidly and have witnessed from afar the positive and progressive rhetoric from the SNP, which has resulted in the success that has been produced in this election by your Party. The election result demonstrates the political shift in mindset of the electorate in Scotland, which I experienced first hand from talking to people when I visited your country last September during the referendum campaign.
I hope that the success of the SNP in this election can be emulated next year during the Scottish elections and will encourage you to plan for a further referendum on independence in the next few years. I know that many of our members in the other Celtic countries and beyond have been looking to the political developments in Scotland over the past few years with interest and I know that some of the SNP successes have provided a source of motivation and inspiration for people.
I wish you every success in your continued leadership of the Party and congratulations on the result once again.
Yn lel/Yours sincerely
