SNP RE­AC­TION

The Sunday Post (Dundee) - - Politics -

THE SNP were scathing about the For­eign Sec­re­tary’s Brexit in­ter­ven­tion. Stephen Gethins MP, SNP spokesper­son on In­ter­na­tional Af­fairs and Europe, said: “Theresa May must make clear whether Boris John­son is speak­ing for the UK Gov­ern­ment with his lat­est em­bar­rass­ing in­ter­ven­tion on Brexit. “The Tory Gov­ern­ment’s plans for Brexit al­ready threaten sig­nif­i­cant dam­age to the UK and Scot­tish economies, and to our in­ter­na­tional rep­u­ta­tion – Boris seems de­ter­mined to make that even worse.

“The Tories have a chance to step back from the brink, and back stay­ing in the sin­gle mar­ket and the cus­toms union – not just on a tran­si­tional ba­sis but for the long-term to pro­tect our econ­omy and re­tain ac­cess to the big­gest mar­ket in the world.

“As for Boris John­son’s empty prom­ises to the NHS, the Tories ei­ther need to pay up this myth­i­cal money for our val­ued health ser­vice or fess up that, just like the rest of their Brexit claims, this is an­other Tory con.”
