SDP spokesman Mev Brown insisted that with Ruth Davidson out of the picture as Scottish Tory leader it is now a great opportunity for another party to challenge Nicola Sturgeon’s Brexit rhetoric. In an interview with Express.co.uk, Mr Brown suggested part of the reason Ruth Davidson had resigned as Scottish Conservative Leader was due to her agreement with Ms Sturgeon on issues regarding Europe. He argued up until recently there was no voice or opposition to the Scottish Remain parties which ultimately resulted in Scotland as a whole voting to Remain.
The Scottish Democratic Party spokesman told Express.co.uk: “People have been buying the lines from the Remainers, all five Remain parties in Scotland.
“They have not had a political alternative, there was no political alternative until the Scottish Democratic Party formed earlier this month.
“We do have that opportunity to grab that ball and run with it.
“I am hypothesising here; the reason Ruth Davidson stood down is that she knew she agreed with Nicola Sturgeon on all things Europe.
