Extreme Hard Brexit: 1st October 2020
Boris Johnson is steering the UK full pelt towards an extreme hard Brexit disaster, after the EU Commission today took the first step in legal action against the UK government for breaching international law with its UK Internal Market Bill.
This law-breaking Tory government is ruining the UK's international reputation and threatening the economy. Ever clearer that the only way to protect Scotland's interests and place in Europe is to become an independent country.
The Prime Minister has shown us he is arrogant, reckless and completely untrustworthy. There is now little doubt that the UK is heading towards a low deal or no deal Brexit, either of which would be devastating for jobs, living standards, businesses and the economy.
Worse, this extreme Tory Brexit hammer blow will come at the worst possible time - hitting the UK in the middle of a global pandemic when many businesses are already struggling to survive.
Scotland has been completely ignored by Westminster throughout the Brexit process. It is now beyond doubt that the only way to protect Scotland's interests and our place in Europe is to become an independent country.
