SNP COMMENT ON BREXIT SECRETARY'S RESIGNATION

Commenting on the resignation of the Brexit Secretary, the SNP's Westminster leader Ian Blackford MP said:

“The resignation of David Davis is a far cry from the repeated ‘strong and stable’ rhetoric from Theresa May. This isn’t so much ‘strong and stable’ as it is chaotic and crumbling.

“It has taken the Tory government more than two years since the EU referendum to formulate some sort of a Brexit proposal, and it has taken a mere two days for it to all fall apart. 

“The question now for Theresa May is whether or not she will fall in line with the demands of her party’s extreme Brexiteers, or instead recognise the clear majority in parliament for the urgent need to keep the UK in the single market and customs union, to protect the economy, jobs and living standards of families across the UK.

“Theresa May will have an opportunity in parliament today to choose her government’s path. I call on the Prime Minister to see sense and bring forward a plan that heeds the mounting evidence against a hard Brexit raised by opposition parties, the business community and the devolved administrations."
