WATCH: Vince Cable’s speech to Scottish Conference

Here is Vince Cable’s speech to Scottish Conference yesterday. He challenged the SNP to back a People’s Vote on the Brexit deal, saying that their silence on the issue was embarrassing. He said he had been working with them perfectly well on issues like the customs union and he single market and called on them to put the national interest above their party interest.

He also made it clear that the Scottish Conservatives, without whom Theresa May would not be able to form a Government, are wholly signed up to the hard right Tory-UKIP agenda.

He said that he was optimistic about our party’s future, saying that we are on the right side of history. We can stop Brexit, which he said would be a nightmare for EU nationals and said that there was no solution for the Irish Border that didn’t involve staying n the customs union.

    Pity you couldn’t stretch to a proper video camera. The sound on this and the video of Mr Rennie’s speech (both shot presumably on an iPhone or similar device) was abysmal.

    If parliamentarians are not prepared to vote with their feet, it is up to the electorate to do so. The Conservative are being shown for what they are regarding immigration and treating newcomers. It is clear our parliament is not up to coping with the complexities thrown up by the referendum and the resulting Brexit process.
