Let’s learn the lessons of Brexit, not repeat them with independence

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today used a visit to an archery centre in Edinburgh to ask whether Nicola Sturgeon has learned anything at all from the last three years, as he warned that we should "learn the lessons of Brexit, not repeat them with independence".

Mr Rennie said:

"Sometimes it seems like Nicola Sturgeon has learned nothing from the last three years. Breaking up a successful political and economic union means uncertainty and chaos. We need to learn the lessons of Brexit, not repeat them with independence.

"The Liberal Democrats are targeting gains at this election because we want to make the constitutional chaos stop. Scotland faces many challenges with the NHS, education and the environment but the answer to these is not more constitutional division and upheaval with independence. All of these issues are being neglected because the Conservatives and the SNP are stuck on repeat.

"We can only build a brighter future for Scotland by stopping Brexit and stopping independence so that we can tackle the climate emergency, improve mental health services and expand childcare."
