Rennie brands McDonnell’s independence comments “astonishingly irresponsible”

Responding to John McDonnell’s comments on independence at the Edinburgh fringe, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

“These comments are astonishingly irresponsible and not in interests of Scotland or the UK.

“It’s bad enough with Boris Johnson bungling on Brexit and independence but to have the Labour Party’s Chancellor piling in makes it a whole lot worse.

“It’s clear only the Liberal Democrats are robustly standing up for Scotland’s place in the UK and the EU.”
