Responding to reports that Scottish Conservative leader Ruth Davidson is set to quit following differences with Boris Johnson, Best for Britain supporter Ian Murray MP said:
“Ruth Davidson is a formidable politician and her departure will be deeply felt by her party.
“She campaigned tirelessly for a Remain vote in the EU referendum, but the Tories under Boris Johnson have become a hard Brexit party, so it is not surprising that it has come to this.
“The Prime Minister and his allies are willing to crash the UK out of the EU without a deal, and they are no longer listening to voices of reason.
“Boris Johnson’s plan for a hard Brexit is a threat to the Union, and sensible Tories know this.”
