A VOTE FOR THE TORIES IS A VOTE FOR BORIS JOHNSON'S CATASTROPHIC NO-DEAL BREXIT

ONLY THE SNP CAN STOP THE TORIES IN SCOTLAND AND ESCAPE BREXIT DAMAGE 

The SNP has warned that a vote for the Scottish Tories at this election is a vote to impose a catastrophic No-Deal Brexit on Scotland – after the party repeatedly refused to rule out plans to crash out of the EU without a deal at the end of next year, if they get back into power.

Speaking ahead of a visit to East Renfrewshire, SNP Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said that with the SNP as the main challenger to every Tory-held seat in Scotland, only a vote for the SNP is a vote to lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street, escape Brexit and to put Scotland’s future in Scotland’s hands.

Despite previous commitments that the Scottish Tories “won’t support” a No-Deal Brexit, interim Scottish Tory leader Jackson Carlaw has now fallen into line behind his boss, saying he would back plans to leave the EU even if there was no deal agreed with Brussels – a move which would cost thousands of jobs in Scotland and harm people’s livelihoods.

Commenting, Finance Secretary Derek Mackay said: 

“At this election, a vote for the SNP is a vote to lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street and provide an escape route from a catastrophic No-Deal Brexit - which the Tories have repeatedly refused to rule out. 

“The Scottish Tories’ backing of a No-Deal Brexit is utterly galling, and it's absolutely clear that voting for the Tories is a vote to hit the economy, cost thousands of jobs, and harm people’s livelihoods.

“Rather than standing up for Scotland's interests, Jackson Carlaw is now quite happy to fall in line and fully sign up to Boris Johnson’s economically catastrophic No-Deal plans – putting our valuable public services at risk and pushing our economy into recession. 

“Quite simply, the Tories cannot be trusted with Scotland’s future. 

“And, with the SNP as the main challengers in every Tory held seat – only SNP MPs can deprive Boris Johnson of a majority and stop the Tories’ disastrous plans to crash out of the EU without a deal."
