This weekend the nationalist campaign is organising a mass "takeover" of Glasgow delivering leaflets claiming that extra welfare spending would be guaranteed. This is despite the White Paper not committing to one penny more on welfare and their expert group pledging to reintroduce sanctions, universal credit and work programme.
Commenting, Mr Rennie said:
"In public the nationalists make grandiose promises to spend more on welfare and make big changes to the welfare system. Yet behind the scenes their expert group on welfare and their white paper proposes no extra money and the reintroduction of measures they publicly condemn.
"The Institute for Fiscal Studies has been clear than an independent Scotland would need to raise taxes and cut public spending to the tune of £6 billion. Experts know that the Nationalists' sums don't add up, but this doesn't stop them promising the earth to those who would be hardest hit by the cuts which would come.
"We know what the Nationalists don't like but what is still unclear is how anything would change in the event of Scotland leaving the UK; how any changes would be paid for, or in what currency.
"Changing the name of policies to pretend that something radically different is being proposed is disingenuous, dishonest and it will not wash.
