Responding to comments from SNP backbencher Angus MacNeil MP and former deputy leadership contender Chris McEleny demanding a second independence referendum this year, Scottish Liberal Democrat constitutional affairs spokesperson Wendy Chamberlain said:
“Brexit or no Brexit, SNP fundamentalists will always put independence first.
“The SNP seem to have learned nothing from the past three years. Breaking up brings chaos and confusion.
"What the Scottish public want is a government that is focused on improving public services, not barely controlled Twitter arguments between different wings of the SNP."
