Responding to Richard Leonard’s speech to Labour conference, Scottish Liberal Democrat general election chair Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“Until Richard Leonard manages to convince his Labour colleagues to back Scotland in the UK and the UK in Europe, he will have absolutely no chance of wining back the hundreds of thousands of voters who have abandoned his party.
“Richard Leonard thinks that “a media war on Labour” is to blame for his poor poll ratings. The reality is that the public are completely baffled by Labour’s positioning on Brexit and independence.
“Under Jo Swinson, the Liberal Democrats are committed to stopping Brexit and putting a stop to the SNP’s obsessive pursuit of independence.”
