Independence would be like Brexit on steroids

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today warned that Scottish independence would be bad for business as he visited the Fudge Kitchen in Edinburgh.

Mr Rennie said:

"Independence would be like Brexit on steroids. It would mean a huge blow to the economy and less money for public services.

The SNP's own growth commission forecasts a decade of austerity and spending restraint.

"What Scotland needs is to put the constitutional chaos behind us and focus on building a brighter future by investing in mental health, education and tackling the climate emergency."
