SNP obsession with breaking up the UK is the problem

Speaking ahead of Nicola Sturgeon’s statement to the Scottish Parliament on Tuesday, setting out her plans for another referendum to break up the UK, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Alex Cole-Hamilton said:  

“Nicola Sturgeon’s desire to break up the UK is out of touch, obsessive and desperate.

“Nicola Sturgeon is neglecting everyone who is worried about paying the bills or the sharp spike in Covid infections. It’s a kick in the teeth for health staff, the hundreds of thousands of people on NHS waiting lists and anyone who believed the First Minister when she said education was the top priority.

“Breaking up the UK is not the solution to these problems. Her obsession with breaking up the UK is big part of the problem.” 

Responding to reports that 20 civil servants are working on Nicola Sturgeon’s independence proposals, at a cost of up to £1.2 million, Mr Cole-Hamilton added:

“This money and these civil servants could be used to tackle the cost-of-living emergency, cut Covid rates or reduce waiting times. At the hands of the SNP, they are being used for the very opposite.

“The SNP are frittering away money on a reckless fantasy to divide the UK.”
