Speaking ahead of her speech to the Scottish Liberal Democrat Conference in Hamilton on Friday 22nd February, Deputy Leader Jo Swinson MP said:
“Every day as the chaos unfolds, we see how hard leaving the European Union will be.
“Every form of Brexit will make us poorer, it will put jobs at risk and it will weaken us on the global stage.
“What was supposed to be the ‘easiest trade deal in human history’ has proved to be anything but.
“Nicola Sturgeon and the SNP have learnt nothing from watching Theresa May negotiate our way out of Europe.
"Breaking a union of 40 years is destroying our country, I dread to think what dismantling a union of more than 300 years would do."
"Instead of concentrating on improving our schools and investing in mental health support, the First Minister is more interested in how she can use Brexit to break up our United Kingdom.”
