Speaking ahead of the forthcoming Scottish budget, Scottish Liberal Democrat campaign chair Alex Cole-Hamilton MSP said:
“We’ve made clear to the SNP that we want to see a budget that stops their independence obsession in its tracks. We want to focus on education, mental health and local government funding.
“If the SNP won’t park independence in order to get a budget through then it will be time for a different government that will.
“If their inability to get a budget through necessitates a new Scottish Parliament election then I have every hope that people in Scotland will want to use that to eject the nationalists.”
