Scots Tories pushing hard right Brexit agenda

Scots Tories who signed hard-right list of Brexit demands are showing contempt for their constituents economic well-being, according to Lib Dem Scottish Affairs spokesperson Christine Jardine MP.

The Edinburgh West MP’s comments follow news that three Scottish Conservative MPs have signed the European Research Group’s list of demands.

Ms Jardine said:

"This shows how ridiculously supine the Scottish Tories are, marching through the voting lobbies in pursuit of Theresa May's hard Brexit and putting their names to a letter which, if enacted, would wreck the British economy.

"That three MPs would so nakedly put a hard right agenda ahead of the interests of their own constituents, makes a mockery of Ruth Davidson's claim that her MPs would "forcefully" make Scotland's case to the Prime Minister."
