That sums it up pretty well. I have quoted Ruth Davidson and David Mundell. I have quoted Adam Tomkins; I repeat his words. He said:

“there can be no separate Brexit deal for each of the nations that comprise the United Kingdom”,


“any sort of differentiated deal” is something that

“no unionist could ever endorse”.

This is a differentiated deal—there are no ifs and buts about it; that is what it is—and it has been endorsed by the Scottish Conservatives because they are Conservatives first and, I have to say, anything else a long way behind.
