Responding to comments from Jeremy Corbyn’s spokesman in which they once again refused to rule out the prospect of another independence referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“Labour have shown a total lack of leadership on both Brexit and independence.
“Jeremy Corbyn’s casual attitude to independence and Brexit shows he cannot be trusted with the future of our country. He will happily cut a deal with the SNP that puts Scotland at risk.
“The Liberal Democrats are the only party going into the next election promising to keep Scotland in the UK and the UK in the EU.”
