Meet the newly appointed chief advisor to Boris Johnson…
Ruth Davidson knows how damaging a no-deal Brexit would be and claims to oppose it, but why won’t she tell her MPs to vote against it?
UK Gov’s own analysis shows no-deal Brexit will mean food shortages and will shrink the Scottish economy by 8%, yet Alister Jack is happy to support it.
Boris Johnson has been appointed Prime Minister, not by the UK electorate, nor by the people of Scotland, but by Tory Party members. He does not have a mandate to drag Scotland out of the EU, with or without a deal.
Boris Johnson’s attempts to deceive are a desperate deflection from the fact that he’s been made Prime Minister thanks solely to the votes of 0.2% of the UK’s population.
Tory MPs can try all they want, but Scotland will not be shouted down.
Boris Johnson has a record of dishonesty, of stoking division in communities and of explicitly racist language. He is not fit for office.

While the Tories laugh on the sidelines, we’re fighting to protect Scotland’s interests.
Theresa May’s vision is blinded by her hard-right Brexit ideology and is damaging Scotland’s education sector.
Richard Leonard was given the chance to call for welfare powers to be taken out of the hands of the Tories in Westminster, and put into the hands of the people of Scotland.
Once again, he refused.
Scotland has been silenced and sidelined in this Brexit fiasco.
Westminster is not working for Scotland – it’s the EU, not the UK, that has put our citizens first.
Stephen Gethins: “I want to live in a Scotland that is not beholden to the extremists currently calling the shots in Westminster. A country that welcomes the world and seeks to work on an equal basis with our neighbours.”
