Commenting in response to Ruth Davidson’s speech this evening, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said
“The Conservative Party is not breaking down trade barriers, it is building them higher. Ruth Davidson's party has turned its back on our neighbours in Europe to hold hand's with Donald Trump.
“The Tories plan for a hard Brexit will damage our economy just like plans for a hard break-up of the UK. Ruth Davidson is a cheerleader for Brexit irrespective of the damage - just like the SNP are on independence.”
