Speaking in response to an interview on GMS with Stewart Hosie this morning, where the SNP Treasury spokesperson claimed that Scottish exports go mostly to the EU even though the vast majority of those are to the rest of the UK, the leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats Willie Rennie MSP said:
“The SNP’s shadow chancellor is properly confused.
“The SNP’s response to the closing of one open border is the closing of another one.
"The SNP are in such a state of confusion that their Treasury Spokesperson is deploying the trade arguments of the Leave campaign to defend his plans for independence.
“Only the Liberal Democrats want to see the UK as a whole stay in the EU and keep access to both markets, to get the most jobs for Scotland from both. We believe the people should have a say on the terms of Brexit and that is why we want a referendum on the final deal so that we can keep this process democratic.”
