Speaking ahead of the publication of the Scottish Government’s bill on another independence referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“People who backed the SNP to stop Brexit last week after Nicola Sturgeon promised the election was not about independence will feel let down. The SNP have misused their support to advance independence.
“Nicola Sturgeon wants to pile the chaos of independence on top of the chaos of Brexit.
“Not one patient will be seen quicker nor one school child get a better education as a result of Nicola Sturgeon’s independence obsession. All it will do is damage our economy and hurt our public services.
“Scottish Liberal Democrats have consistently made the case for Scotland at the heart of the UK and the UK at the heart of Europe.”
