Responding to Nicola Sturgeon’s comments on Brexit and a second independence referendum, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie said:
“Nicola Sturgeon has abandoned Remain voters across the UK.
“For people across the UK campaigning to Remain in the European Union, this will be hugely disappointing.
“If you are a Remainer in Scotland, you should know that the SNP will twist every vote into an endorsement of independence.”
“Her party will always put independence ahead of anything else. Under the leadership of Jo Swinson, Liberal Democrats are committed to stopping Brexit and building a brighter future.”
