ANGER AS SCOTTISH LABOUR PREPARE TO ‘SELL-OUT’ SCOTLAND ON BREXIT

LEONARD LETTING DOWN PEOPLE OF SCOTLAND WITH REFUSAL TO OPPOSE BREXIT
 
The SNP have slammed Richard Leonard for his Brexit ‘incompetence’ and inability to confirm whether the Labour Party would support or oppose Brexit in a general election. 
 

In an interview with BBC's Good Morning Scotland, the Scottish Labour leader repeatedly failed to give a view on Brexit and whether he favoured EU membership.
 
This week, an opinion poll conducted for the People’s Vote campaign found that support for Richard Leonard’s party would plunge to just 15 per cent if Labour help deliver a Tory Brexit deal. 
 
Commenting, SNP Depute Leader Keith Brown said:
 
“Labour have proved that they are gearing up, once again, to sell-out the people of Scotland - this time on Brexit. Their members must be in despair.”
 
"Demanding a general election, without a position on the biggest political issue of the day, is the height of incompetence. In fact, it's laughable.
 
“Richard Leonard’s inability to give a straight answer simply suggests that at heart, like his boss at Westminster, he's a signed up Brexiteer.
 
“He has completely failed in his attempts to try and salvage the Labour Party in Scotland. The polls are clear - Labour will not be forgiven for siding with the Tories in their plans to devastate the Scottish economy through crashing out of the EU."
