If she truly wants the best Brexit deal, she should be pulling together with other parts of the UK, not trying to split the country up. We cannot see how the SNP's plans for a separate Scottish deal, or independence, will deliver that. Simply put, all the evidence shows that it would create a trade barrier at Berwick. That’s not just our view – it’s the view of industry leaders, academics and members of the SNP’s own hand-picked standing council of experts.
Given that, it’s perhaps no surprise that yesterday’s paper wasn’t written by the experts, but by the SNP government itself. The SNP is simply putting forward evidence-free assertions.
Is Scottish first minister Nicola Sturgeon deluded to think that Scotland can get a special Brexit deal?
