Last week, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon announced to Holyrood that she wants to hold a second referendum on Scottish independence by 2021 if Brexit happens.
Responding to the news, Jo said:
“Instead of focusing on improving hospitals and schools, Nicola Sturgeon is showing once again that the SNP are only interested in independence. Once again, she is putting the SNP before Scotland.
“The Lib Dems have long been vocal about how poisonous Brexit will be for the UK. Independence would be disastrous for Scotland. Dissolving our 46-year union with the EU is excruciating, dissolving a 300-year union would clearly be much more painful.
“Nicola Sturgeon must not heap chaos on top of chaos.”
