Jardine: Cross Party support for rethinking Brexit


Edinburgh West MP Christine Jardine has welcomed the letter from senior figures across Scottish politics, business, academia and the arts calling for a halt to Brexit, published in today’s Herald.

 

Ms Jardine said: “This letter is a significant, and welcome, intervention from representatives from all areas of Scottish society on an issue with profound implications for all of us.

“Scottish Liberal Democrats have argued all along that Theresa May will never be able to get a deal for Britain outside the EU as good as the one we have now.

“With food prices on the rise, the devolution process under threat and a cabinet riven by infighting, the Conservatives and Labour should abandon their support for an extreme Brexit that threatens jobs, security and the environment and commit to giving the people the opportunity to reject a terrible deal in a Brexit deal referendum.”
