Responding to the First Minister's comments following her meeting with the Prime Minister, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
"The First Minister is not the first person to find that Theresa May isn't listening. She's spent two years with her fingers in her ears.
"Nevertheless, this aggressive rhetoric from the First Minister seems to be conveniently timed to cover up the divisions in her own party.
"Scotland is sick and tired of the SNP's independence obsession."
