Responding to Tony Blair’s speech to the pro-European campaign group, Open Britain, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“Tony Blair is right about Europe but wrong about independence.
“The Conservative’s hard Brexit is bad for Britain’s economy which is why the public need the final say on the deal.
“But Tony Blair is wrong about independence. The case for independence is weaker, not stronger, now especially with the £15 billion black hole in the Scottish public finances that would hit our NHS and schools.”
