JOHNSON "MUST ACCEPT DEFEAT" AND TAKE EXTREME BREXIT OFF THE TABLE

SNP WILL BACK EARLY ELECTION ONCE TORY NO-DEAL THREAT REMOVED

The SNP has said Boris Johnson must accept defeat, and take his threats of an extreme Brexit off the table - after the Tory Prime Minister was defeated in Parliament for the seventh time.

Commenting, SNP Westminster Leader Ian Blackford MP said:

"Boris Johnson has lost every single vote since he became Prime Minister. He must finally accept defeat and take his threat to impose a catastrophic no-deal Brexit off the table. 

"The SNP want an election as soon as possible when the threat of an extreme Brexit is removed. The Tory leader must now obey the law in letter and spirit, and respect the will of parliament and the people.

"It is an absolute disgrace that the Tories have shut down Parliament to avoid scrutiny in the middle of a constitutional crisis - the SNP will do everything we can to prevent Mr Johnson subverting the law and forcing through his damaging plans.

"Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU. All the evidence shows any form of Brexit would be devastating - threatening to cause a deep recession, destroy 100,000 Scottish jobs, and cause lasting harm to living standards, public services and the economy. 

"Once the threat of No-deal is off the table, we will move for an early election. The SNP will put Scotland's opposition to Brexit and our right to choose our own future as an independent nation at the heart of that contest."
