Commenting on a new YouGov poll of Conservative party members which reports that 63% would accept Scotland leaving the UK as the price of Brexit, Scottish Liberal Democrat election campaign chair Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“The Conservative party is hopelessly cavalier with the future of the United Kingdom. This poll is a damning indictment of Conservative priorities and a humiliation for Ruth Davidson.
“What’s more, not a single Scottish Conservative MP has joined her in endorsing Sajid Javid. What ever happened to their claim to be strong and united?
“Scottish Liberal Democrats will continue to campaign for Scotland at the heart of the UK and the UK at the heart of Europe.”
