Corbyn to ‘get into bed with nationalists’ over Brexit

Jeremy Corbyn would “rather get into bed” with the nationalists than stand up to them, the Scottish Conservatives have said.

It follows revelations in The Times that the Labour leader has written to his SNP counterpart in Westminster Ian Blackford over Brexit.

He wants to “work together” with the SNP over the UK’s departure from the European Union.

However, the Scottish Conservatives have warned the obvious price for such a negotiation will be agreeing for the nationalists to hold a second referendum on independence.

Scottish Conservative constitution spokesman Adam Tomkins said:

“It’s no surprise to see Labour and the SNP reaching out to each other again.

“And Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t care a jot that the price of such an arrangement will be a second referendum on independence.

“It proves yet again that Labour would rather get into bed with the nationalists than stand up to them.

“Only the Scottish Conservatives are serious about honouring the view of the majority of Scots who voted No in 2014.”
