Tony Miklinski told Express.co.uk that he hoped Labour could come back to being considered a credible party in Scotland. The Scottish Conservative added that it is only his party that are capable of stopping the SNP from securing a majority in Holyrood.
Mr Miklinski said: “The Labour Party, I wish them well in coming back to being a credible party but right now they represent no option, no alternative to the SNP.
“The only party that offers that are the Conservatives.
“We are the only ones capable of stopping them from getting a majority and resisting what would be a disastrous second independence referendum.”
Earlier this month, Survation’s poll for the Daily Record found the SNP would currently win 67 seats during the May 2021 election.
The opinion poll put the other remaining parties on 62 seats, meaning Nicola Sturgeon’s party would secure a majority.
Mr Miklinski also told Express.co.uk that the Scottish Labour Party is in a ‘desperate position’ due to Keir Starmer’s unclear stance on Scottish independence.
The Scottish Conservative councillor added that without a clear policy on Scottish independence the Scottish Labour Party will suffer in the upcoming Holyrood election in May 2021.
Mr Miklinski said: “I don’t know as I sit here which of the statements from Keir Starmer or anybody else constitutes Labour’s position on independence.

“Are they for it? Are they against it? Is it up to the Scottish people if they want it? I have heard variations of that theme.
“Labour is in a desperate position, Labour will never be in power again in the UK if they cannot get back their power base in Scotland.
“How do they do that? Do they do it by pandering to the nationalists and being warm towards independence?
“Or do they oppose it and become part of the unionist movement?

“I don’t think they know, I think they are scratching around under Keir Starmer, I don’t think he has really thought through the implications of what he is trying to do with Scotland.”
He continued: “I expect Labour to suffer more so than they did at the last election.
“They really are a spent force, I see it on a daily basis, they are split.
“So unless Keir Starmer can exert some control and get a clear policy then I think they are destined to be wiped out.”
