Responding to Jeremy Corbyn’s comments on the prospect of a second independence referendum, Willie Rennie said:
“This is an extraordinary opinion from Jeremy Corbyn. So many people with moderate and progressive views will be horrified by this careless attitude towards the UK. Liberal Democrats are opposed to independence and opposed to another divisive independence referendum.
The case against independence is even stronger since the SNP’s Growth Commission admitted what we said about independence in 2014 was right. Brexit also shows that breaking up long standing unions is costly and hard to do.”
