SNP ‘have learned nothing’ from Brexit negotiations, Lib Dems say - AOL UK
The SNP have learned nothing from watching Theresa May’s attempts to negotiate a deal to leave the European Union, according to the Lib Dems’ deputy leader. Jo Swinson argued that Scottish independence would be even worse than the difficulties faced by the UK in negotiating Brexit. Ahead of her speech at the Scottish Liberal Democrat conference in Hamilton on Friday, Ms Swinson said: “Every day as the chaos unfolds, we see how hard leaving the European Union will be. SNP MSP Rona Mackay said: “Independence is the opposite of Brexit – it’s about Scotland joining Europe and the world as an equal partner – not about throwing up new barriers like Brexit does.
