Liberal Democrat MP Christine Jardine has today accused the SNP of "hypocrisy" for opposing Brexit but refusing to support giving the people a vote on the final deal.

Ms Jardine said:

"The First Minister is right to warn that a no deal Brexit is unthinkable.

"But that is what the Tories appear to have in the pipeline. This presents an immediate threat to the Scottish economy and public services.

"With this prospect on the horizon I find it bizarre that the SNP are still refusing to back a People's Vote on the final settlement.

"It's rampant hypocrisy for the SNP to lament the consequences of Brexit and do nothing about it. They must join the growing movement across the UK, oppose the Tories and defend Scotland's interests by supporting a people's vote on the final deal."
