LABOUR’S so-called General Election "campaigning bible" shows the party’s “indifference” towards Scottish voters, according to the SNP.

It comes after The National reported that the 24-page document – which has been sent to each of Labour’s election candidates – doesn’t mention Scotland once.

The glossy tome is full of campaign slogans and talking points readily packaged for activists, including several England and Wales-specific policies.

Tommy Sheppard said that Scotland’s omission shows the Labour Party’s “indifference” to Scottish voters and the issues that “matter most to them”.

"Whether it’s refusing to scrap the two-child limit and rape clause, to bin the Bedroom Tax, to strengthen workers’ rights, to invest in Scotland’s energy future, or to enhance devolution, it’s clear that Sir Keir Starmer offers Scottish voters nothing,” he said.

"It is only by voting SNP at the next General Election can Scots ensure that their priorities are represented in Westminster. the SNP is the only party standing up for Scotland's values and interests."

Scottish Labour previously confirmed to The National that they aren’t currently formulating their own “campaign bible” – and have been approached for a response to the SNP comments.

The National: Scottish Labour's Holyrood leader Anas Sarwar

In terms of election strategy north of the Border, Scottish Labour leader Anas Sarwar (above) claimed during a BBC interview on Sunday that his party will not use success at the General Election as an “endorsement for the Union”.

Sheppard previously argued that Scottish independence is off the table if the SNP lose at the next General Election.

BBC host Martin Geissler asked Sarwar if he thought he was right.

Sarwar replied: “I don’t think so because I think there is still a raging debate in the country around the constitution.

“But that is not what this General Election is going to be about, I've been really clear that I’m not going to turn my back, close my eyes or shut my ears to any voter in the country, whether they voted yes or no, or even if they voted for any other political party in the past.”

He added: “I’m not hiding it, to people that may not have voted Labour in the past, who may be sympathetic to independence, I don’t support independence, I don’t support a referendum, but I accept we need change right now.”
