📺 @NicolaSturgeon: “The proposals on the table from Boris Johnson would not be acceptable to the SNP. They would take Scotland out of the EU, out of the single market, out of the customs union, with all the damage that would do - and against our will.” #SNP19 #Marr
NS: "I am not prepared, as the First Minister of Scotland, to accept the inevitability of Brexit." #SNP19 #Marr
NS: "Over the past few weeks I have been of the view that the best sequence of events would be for the opposition to try and get rid of Boris Johnson in a vote of confidence, then have the extension secured, and then have a general election as quickly as possible." #SNP19 #Marr
NS: "I’ve very deliberately tried not to close down options. This Brexit fiasco is in such a mess - the implications and the consequences are so potentially damaging that I think any responsible leader would want to keep all their options open." #SNP19 #Marr
NS: "In these circumstances the argument for Scotland becoming independent is even stronger than it has been previously … We see from today’s poll in the Sunday Times that support for independence is rising." #SNP19 #Marr
NS: “I don’t underestimate the dangers of a Boris Johnson led government in a race to the bottom, prioritising trade deals with the likes of Donald Trump - which is why I would like to see a vote of confidence to get him out of office.” #SNP19 #Marr
NS: “I speak to people in European institutions and other members states regularly as part of my job as First Minister. I think there is a real appetite to see Scotland in the EU - I think there would be open arms for Scotland.” #SNP19 #Marr
NS: “I’m putting legislation through the Scottish Parliament right now to put the rules and regulations in place for #IndyRef2 - as that legislation progresses we will make the request for a Section 30 order." #SNP19 #Marr
NS: “I’ll say this to Jeremy Corbyn or to any Westminster leader looking to the SNP for support - if you don’t accept Scotland’s right to choose our own future, at a time of our own choosing, don’t even bother picking up the phone to me.” #SNP19 #Marr
NS: “I listened to Jeremy Corbyn at his recent conference, and the policies he was proposing - abolishing prescription charges, abolishing tuition fees, free personal care for the elderly - the SNP has already done all of these things in Scotland.” #SNP19 #Marr
