IF MAY WANTS TO DEBATE BREXIT PLAN, HERE’S ONE WE PREPARED EARLIER

KEITH BROWN: TORIES RUNNING SCARED OF DEBATING REAL ALTERNATIVE

Theresa May is “running scared” of debating the only party with a real alternative to her bad Brexit deal, the SNP has said. 

The Prime Minister has challenged Jeremy Corbyn to debate her Brexit plan, saying: “I am ready to debate it with Jeremy Corbyn. Because I have got a plan. He hasn't got a plan."

However, her deputy David Lidington this morning dismissed calls for Nicola Sturgeon to appear in the debate – despite the Scottish Government publishing a comprehensive plan for Brexit two years ago. 

Commenting, SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:

“If Theresa May wants to debate a Brexit plan, here’s one we prepared earlier. 

“If the UK is leaving the EU, it should remain in the single market and customs union – by far the least damaging option for jobs and household incomes. 

“The SNP are the only party with a comprehensive, alternative Brexit plan – and the people of Scotland can’t be left with the false choice between Theresa May’s deal or no deal at all. 

“Scotland voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU – but the Tories have done everything to shut our voice out from negotiations. It would be a democratic outrage for Scotland to be ignored once again.”
