The Scottish Conservatives have accused Nicola Sturgeon of using Brexit, once again, to push for another referendum on independence.
Commenting on the launch of the SNP’s campaign for the European Parliamentary elections, Jackson Carlaw, Scottish Conservative deputy leader, accused the First Minister of failing to come up with a plan to deliver Brexit and instead, “pushing her only priority, another referendum on independence.”
Scottish Conservative deputy leader Jackson Carlaw said:
“Nicola Sturgeon’s grievance-laden speech is yet further evidence of her real priority – not to come up with a sensible plan to deliver Brexit, but to use Brexit to push her only priority, another referendum on independence.
“These elections on May 23rd are our chance to say no to Nicola Sturgeon and no to any more referendums – whether on independence or the European Union.
“The choice is clear: Nicola Sturgeon has never met a referendum result she accepts.
“Our position is to respect the results of the referendum and get on with delivering a deal that backs our fishermen and our businesses, so we can all move on.”
