Scottish Parliament: Brexit (Preparations) (4 Apr 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: mitigate every impact of a no-deal Brexit, should that happen. That is why it is so important that we all work to avoid that scenario. Yesterday at Westminster, I had a constructive meeting with Jeremy Corbyn and then I met the Prime Minister. In the meeting with the Prime Minister I set out, once again, the Scottish Government’s single market-customs union compromise. That is not our...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (4 Apr 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...the future relationship. As Willie Rennie says, such commitments could be ripped up by a future Prime Minister, such as Boris Johnson—perish the thought. I expressed that concern strongly to Jeremy Corbyn and his colleagues yesterday. It is up to him whether he listens to me, but I said that, if I were in his shoes, I would be very wary about doing a deal with the Prime Minister on that...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (14 Mar 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...for those of us who oppose Brexit—which I think includes Richard Leonard—to come together to find a better way forward. I ask him—I hope in a constructive spirit—to use his influence with Jeremy Corbyn to get him firmly behind the option of a second EU referendum. If Jeremy Corbyn would come off that fence, that option would become not just the best one but the most likely next...

Scottish Parliament: Scottish Independence (17 Jan 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: independent, the better for all of us. On Brexit, Patrick Harvie is absolutely right that the Prime Minister is in the process of driving the whole of the UK off a cliff edge, but right now Jeremy Corbyn is sitting in the passenger seat of the car that is taking the UK off that cliff edge. The way in which both the Government at Westminster and the official Opposition have failed to...

Scottish Parliament: Second European Union Referendum (17 Jan 2019)

Nicola Sturgeon: It is time for Jeremy Corbyn and Labour to get off the fence that they have been sitting on for so long. Labour wanted to force a general election first. The debate on and vote of no confidence in the United Kingdom Government took place yesterday, and SNP MPs voted that they have no confidence in the Government. We backed Labour in that attempt, but it did not pass. There is not going to be...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (People’s Vote) (20 Dec 2018)

Nicola Sturgeon: bringing a vote of no confidence in the incompetent, sorry Tory Government. If such a motion were passed, we would get rid of that incompetent Government; if it were not passed, it would force Jeremy Corbyn to make a decision on a second EU referendum. Perhaps, instead of constantly asking me about this, Willie Rennie—outside the chamber—could put a bit more pressure on the Labour...

Scottish Parliament: Brexit (7 Dec 2017)

Nicola Sturgeon: ...who think that the most commonsense compromise option is for the UK as a whole to remain within the single market and the customs union. I believe that if Labour was to get its act together—if Jeremy Corbyn was to get his act together—that position could command a majority in the House of Commons. Let us try to unite all those who are of that opinion to stop these incompetent,...

Scottish Parliament: Engagements (26 Nov 2015)

Nicola Sturgeon: Later today I will reply to the email that Jeremy Corbyn sent me yesterday, asking what he should ask at Prime Minister’s question time next week. In the email, he said that in “just over two months ... already we’ve achieved so much together.” I think that Jeremy Corbyn is being modest. He and Chairman Mao are doing much more to destroy the Labour Party than even I have managed.
