VOTERS WILL NEVER “FORGIVE OR FORGET” TORIES FOR BREXIT CHAOS

A VOTE FOR THE SNP AT EUROPEAN ELECTIONS IS A VOTE TO SAY NO TO BREXIT

The SNP’s Europe spokesperson has warned that voters will never “forgive or forget” the Tories for putting their party interests ahead of the economic and social interests of Scotland and the UK amidst the Brexit chaos. 

Stephen Gethins MP added that Scotland's parliament and people had been repeatedly ignored and was paying the price for a Tory civil war that has exacerbated the Brexit process.

In a further sign of continued infighting and pitching for the Tory leadership, senior Brexit-backing Tory MPs – including former Cabinet ministers – have written to Theresa May pressing her to ditch cross-party talks and instead pursue a hard Brexit.

Ahead of the European Parliamentary elections next week, Stephen Gethins added that only a vote for the SNP is a vote to stop Brexit and send a clear message to Westminster that Scotland’s place is in Europe. 

Commenting, Stephen Gethins MP said:

“Since the EU referendum, Scotland’s people and parliament have been ignored time and time again and our interests have been side-lined.  

“The Brexit mess came about as the direct result of Tory leaders appeasing the right-wing of their party. More than three years on and the bitter infighting is still dragging Scotland and the UK down the road to economic harm.

“Voters will never forgive or forget the Tories for shamelessly putting the interests of the Conservative party ahead of the economic and social interests of Scotland and the UK. 

“The Brexit chaos must come to a long overdue end. Scotland must not be made to pay the price of a Tory driven Brexit that will be a disaster for jobs and people’s living standards.

“Only a vote for the SNP in the upcoming European elections is a vote to stop Brexit, and will send a clear message to Westminster that Scotland’s place is at the heart of Europe.”
