Scottish Parliament: Brexit Update (12 Dec 2018)

Tavish Scott: The Prime Minister refused at Prime Minister’s questions today to remove the threat of a no-deal Brexit. I am sure that the cabinet secretary noted that.

Tavish Scott: ...white again, and it is certainly not Blair. Neil Findlay is now the most influential Labour politician in Scotland, with the ear of the leader.
