Any Brexit option cobbled together at the last minute by Labour and the Tories will make Scotland poorer. And it could potentially be unpicked by a future Tory PM – such as Boris Johnson.
Ian Blackford: “Another Tory Prime Minister is willing to ride off into the sunset and saddle us with a crisis in the UK, and an extreme right-wing Brexiteer coming into Downing Street.
Alyn Smith MEP’s moving speech to the European Parliament, warmly applauded by Donald Tusk and colleagues: “Leave a light on, so that we can find our way home”
Tory MPs told Ian Blackford to go home, exposing what the Tories truly think of Scotland.
“My message is for every EU national across the UK. You are welcome here and we want you to stay. What has been done to you by Brexiteer politicians is nothing short of disgraceful.”
“The frustration people feel right now at our country, Scotland’s future, being determined by the DUP and a cabal of right-wing Tories is understandable, and I share it.”
SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown MSP on BBC Scotland’s Debate Night.
“If Scotland is to be taken out of the EU against our will, there is a mandate in Scotland, won at two elections now, to give people the choice of independence.”
