Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP has today said that the SNP is in disarray as the First Minister has tried to decouple the upcoming general election from independence.
Commenting Mr Rennie said:
"Nicola Sturgeon has lost the plot. For months she has been having a tantrum - demanding that Scots have another independence referendum so we could stay in Europe. When support dropped she got cold feet. First she watered down her EU policy to keep Brexit supporters on board. Now she is backing off independence to stop her party shedding votes in the general election. This is a party in disarray.
"Nicola Sturgeon should not take voters for fools. She'll tell them now that the general election is not about independence but will be straight back onto the independence agenda once the election is over.
"A vote for the Liberal Democrats in the general election is a vote against yet another divisive independence referendum."
