Ian Blackford MP has challenged Theresa May on Tory plans to bring back her three-times defeated Brexit deal for yet another vote in June - questioning whether she has done a secret backroom deal with Jeremy Corbyn to force it through.

Speaking at Prime Ministers Questions, the SNP Westminster Leader said Scotland had been shut out of the Tory-Labour talks - and urged voters to back the SNP at the European elections to stop Brexit and send a clear message that Scotland will not be ignored any more.

Commenting after the exchange, Ian Blackford MP said: 

"Theresa May's plan to bring her damaging Brexit deal back from the dead for a fourth time, and force it through in a shoddy backroom deal with Labour, is completely unacceptable. 

"Scotland did not vote for Brexit and we should not be dragged out of the EU against our will. Any form of Brexit would be devastating for Scotland - costing thousands of jobs, and inflicting lasting harm on living standards, public services and the economy.

"At the European elections next Thursday, the people of Scotland will make their voices heard – whether Westminster likes it or not. A vote for the SNP is a vote to stop Brexit and send a clear message that Scotland will not be ignored any more."
