Brexit Betrayal: Remoaner Scottish Tories to Fight To Block Brexit
Two senior Scottish Conservative MSPs have both signed up to a report which hits out at Brexit and the government’s approach to securing our withdrawal from the EU.
Scottish Conservative constitution spokesman Adam Tomkins and finance spokesman Murdo Fraser both put their names to the report, which argued that the government’s approach to enacting the result of the 2016 referendum result is endangering devotion to Scotland.
Backbench Conservative MSP Alexander Burnett was also behind the report, making it a significant part of the work of the Scottish Conservatives.
The government’s bill, in its present form, would see all powers currently given away to the EU brought back to a sovereign Westminster. This legislation includes over 100 bills on fishing and agriculture, a significant part of the Scottish economy.
Which of these powers, if any, are devolved to Scotland is a decision that the UK government would make and this has very much angered the remoaners in the EU.
However, the SNP are arguing that any powers not specifically devolved to Westminster should go directly to the devolved regions.
