Rennie: Separation papers are therapy for the nationalist movement

Scottish Liberal Democrat communities spokesperson Willie Rennie MSP has criticised the Scottish Government for indulging in “therapy”.

He warned that ministers should be focussed on getting public services right rather than launching yet another set of papers on breaking up the UK.

Mr Rennie, pictured below, said: “Writing these independence papers is more therapy for Humza Yousaf and the nationalist movement than a serious attempt to persuade people to support their cause.  

“Even if it is just for a few hours, it must be a great relief to be distracted from broken ferries, ever longer waiting lists and a social care backlog that mushrooms.

“But the SNP shouldn’t be using government time and money when funds are tight and for something that they know just isn’t going to happen.  A majority of people want government to focus on the day job.”
