Tory Brexit Minister Dominic Raab has sensationally claimed that struggling British businesses are choosing to blame Brexit, rather than taking responsibility for their own loss in profits.

He told the BBC Today programme: "It is rather easy for a business to blame Brexit and politicians rather than to take responsibility for their own situation."
The SNP has condemned the Secretary of State for these flippant remarks as another example of the Tories failing to get a grip of the chaos of Brexit and the likely damage to our economy.,  
Stephen Gethins MP, SNP Spokesperson on International Affairs and Europe at Westminster, said:
“This is yet another example of the Tories trying to making excuses for a Brexit mess of their own making.
“They think they can inflict serious damage on our economy with impunity – and then try to shift the blame onto others.  
“Dominic Raab should apologise for his crass comments  - for him to claim that legitimate concerns about Brexit raised by major UK employers are just an excuse is nothing short of a disgrace.
“Dominic Raab and the Tories have once again missed the point. They continue to prove their absolute arrogance, and demonstrate that they are not fit to run the country.”
