Commenting on Boris Johnson's visit to Glasgow today, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson warned against the divisions proffered by the new PM and SNP Leader Nicola Sturgeon.
Jo Swinson said:
“The best way to strengthen the United Kingdom is to stop Brexit.
“Nicola Sturgeon and Boris Johnson have more in common than they realise. Both are failing to listen to Scotland with their respective ideological pursuits of independence and Brexit.
“When it comes to working with our closest neighbours, we have been clear: our future is best served with a strong Scotland in the UK and the UK within the EU.
“If we want to build a richer, greener and safer future, we need to work with others. That’s why the Liberal Democrats will continue to fight to stop Brexit and keep our country united.”
Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie added:
"I live in hope that Boris Johnson and Nicola Sturgeon might one day agree to stop trying to break things up. They are both as bad as each other with their obsessions of trashing the relationships with our long term neighbours and allies whether that be the European Union or the United Kingdom.”
