Responding to reported remarks by German Chancellor Angela Merkel that a Brexit deal based on the UK Government’s latest proposals is “overwhelmingly unlikely”, following a call with Boris Johnson, the SNP’s Europe and Foreign Affairs spokesperson Stephen Gethins MP said:

“The reported comments by Angela Merkel confirm what we already knew to be true – Boris Johnson’s unworkable deal was designed to fail from the start in order to push Scotland and the UK closer towards a devastating no-deal crash out.

“This is the latest deceitful move by Boris Johnson to shift the blame to European partners – and it will not work. His ‘take it or leave it’ approach is threatening our economy, public services and risking 100,000 Scottish jobs.

“With time running out and his deal as it stands rejected by the EU, Boris Johnson must seek an extension to the October Brexit deadline as the law requires him to do so.

“In Westminster, it is vital that opposition parties move to swiftly bring this Tory government down, secure an extension and call an election. They must put their party interests to the side and act in the national interest."
