Rennie: IndyRef not the answer to a hard Brexit

Commenting on the announcement that the First Minister wants to build a coalition of politicians, businesses and universities to oppose a hard Brexit, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

“If the First Minister was serious about building a broad coalition then she would take independence off the table and not risk compounding the risk of Brexit with another divisive referendum. Independence is not the answer to avoiding a hard Brexit and until she realises this she is creating more uncertainty for businesses across Scotland. 

“To fight against a hard brexit she must remove any idea of another referendum and join the Liberal Democrats in our positive work to protect the UK as a whole within the European Union."
