Britain's Donald Trump, Boris Johnston Had a Few Words to Say Today
In response to his speech today, Stephen Gethins MP had a few words to say in reply.
The SNP’s Europe spokesperson, Stephen Gethins MP, commented:
“Boris Johnson (pictured) is literally the last person who the Tories should wheel out to try and reassure worried Remain voters about Brexit.
“Instead of peddling his embarrassing hard Brexit fantasy he should be apologising for the notorious £350m-a-week-for-the-NHS deception for which he was responsible.
“The UK Government’s own analysis shows a hard Brexit would be a disaster for Scotland’s economy and yet he made clear today the Tories will plough on, no matter the cost.
“The Tories now think they can do anything to Scotland and get away with it.
“Anyone hoping for answers and reassurance from the gaffe-prone Foreign Secretary today would have been sorely disappointed.
“Indeed, we heard more about vacuum cleaners, skiing lessons and the lost island of Doggerland than we did about how the Tories plan to replace the enormous amount of lost trade with the EU that will result of a hard Brexit.
“The SNP believes that Scotland should remain part of the Single Market and the Customs Union, and we will continue to make the case for Scotland’s continued membership – it’s time the Tories did the same and put jobs and living standards ahead of failed Tory dogma.”
