Responding to Ruth Davidson’s comments on the economy, chair of the Scottish general election campaign Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“Scottish independence poses a huge threat to the economy and jobs but no one will take Ruth Davidson seriously on the economy after her defection to support a hard Brexit that will shred jobs across the country.
“Scottish businesses that export to the EU will suffer under the Conservative plans. They have lost any right to call themselves the party of business.
“That's why people should back the Liberal Democrats to keep the single market across the whole UK and EU.”
