Liberal Democrat Scottish Affairs spokesperson Christine Jardine has today said that the eeyorish Chancellor's spring statement ignores the Heffalump in the room as she warned that Brexit will leave every region of the country poorer.
Ms Jardine said:
"While Conservatives debate whether the Chancellor is Eeyore or Tigger, they are all ignoring the Heffalump in the room. The disastrous hard Brexit the Conservatives are dragging the country towards will make every region of the country poorer.
"This will mean a shortage of cash to properly fund our NHS and social care services, and a lack of investment in crucial housing and infrastructure projects.
"We need an honest approach to tax that recognises our public services cannot run for nothing, not tax cuts for the wealthiest."
