The 70/30 Campaign has hit its first major milestone, racking up 50 MP endorsements – and counting! Lisa Nandy MP for Wigan currently stands as our newest member at number 57, with more meetings on the horizon and plenty more politicians to persuade.

Our ever-expanding group stretches across political frontlines, containing Labour, Conservative and Liberal Democrat MPs, as well as our first SNP supporter in Stewart McDonald MP for Glasgow South.

Upon giving his backing to the campaign just last week following a meeting with local Glasgow Ambassador, Martha Abbasi, Stewart McDonald MP said: “I am very pleased to be the first Scottish MP to endorse this campaign, and I would urge as many others as possible to follow – which I am sure they will.” We have high hopes too, Stewart!

For all you tweeters out there, if your MP is one of our endorsers, support 70/30 by following them on Twitter and tweeting them directly, tagging @7030Campaign and using #towards7030
