"SPINELESS” SCOTTISH TORIES MUST RULE OUT NO-DEAL

ONLY THE SNP CAN BEAT THE TORIES AND LET SCOTLAND CHOOSE IT’S OWN FUTURE 

The SNP has branded the Scottish Tories "spineless" - after their interim leader repeatedly refused to rule out plans to leave the EU without a deal at the end of next year and said he would now back Brexit, falling into line with Boris Johnson instead of standing up for people in Scotland.

In an interview with BBC Good Morning Scotland, Jackson Carlaw repeatedly refused to say that the Scottish Tories would not support a No-Deal Brexit at the end of the transition period - which threatens to cause a recession, destroy 100,000 Scottish jobs, and cost every person in the country £2,300 a year.

Despite previously saying the party "won't support" a No-Deal Brexit, the Scottish Tories have U-turned once again on previous commitments. 

Mr Carlaw also admitted that he is now a fully signed up Brexiteer and would not campaign for Remain in another EU referendum, saying: ”I would campaign to leave."

SNP Europe spokesperson Stephen Gethins said: 

“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. 

“It’s time for Jackson Carlaw’s spineless Tories to find a backbone and join the SNP in meaningfully opposing Boris Johnson’s disastrous Brexit plans - instead of always rolling over. 

“The Scottish Tories must give a cast iron guarantee that they will vote against a catastrophic No-Deal Brexit, which threatens to cause a recession, destroy 100,000 Scottish jobs, and cost every person in the country £2,300 a year.

“If not - it’s clear that they are still taking their orders from Westminster and lining up behind Boris Johnson. The people of Scotland will see straight through Jackson Carlaw’s feeble and cowardly attempts to justify the completely undemocratic actions of his boss.

“Only a vote for the SNP on December 12 will allow us to escape Brexit, lock Boris Johnson out of Downing Street, and put Scotland’s future into Scotland’s hands - not Westminster’s.”
