Responding to Jackson Carlaw's comments on Good Morning Scotland in which he said he would campaign to leave the EU if there was a second referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat general election campaign chair Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
"Jackson Carlaw's announcement that he would campaign to leave the EU if there is a People's Vote is arch political cowardice. He knows perfectly well that it will impoverish his constituents and make our country poorer but he goes along with it because Boris Johnson told him to.
"What's truly corrosive to our democracy is that politicians like Jackson Carlaw are putting their loyalty to the Conservative party, ahead of the people of this country.
"Scottish Liberal Democrats want to build a brighter future by investing in education and mental health and putting a stop to both independence and Brexit."
