Conservative MP Sir Bill Cash has attacked SNP MP Drew Hendry in a furious debate in the House of Commons. Sir Bill was debating the Government’s Brexit Internal Market Bill in the House of Commons. He responded to SNP claims that independence and remaining in the EU would be beneficial to the northern nation.

Sir Bill said: “Why on earth would the people of Scotland want to subjugate themselves to a system in the European Union which we’re escaping from – which has got such deleterious and tragic consequences for so many people and jobs in Scotland as well as the rest of the UK?

“He’s arguing that Scotland could do this better but I’m telling him that the consequences of staying in the EU would be extremely damaging.

“The reality is that the manner that the European Union functions, behind closed doors without even a transcript.

“Not to mention the European Commission, which is wholly un-elected.”

He added: “This is very very bad news for Scotland as it stands.

“It would be no substitute for the much more objective and down-to-earth way…in which the UK will ensure the people of Scotland are looked after.”

The Tory MP then went on to use the example of working class industries that were negatively impacted in previous decades.

He said: “There are many many people in Scotland in the coal mining and steel industries who’s jobs were decimated in the last century as they were in England.”

Sir Bill continued: “There is a direct correlation between the seats where people even wouldn’t vote UKIP but voted Conservative because they knew that leaving the European community was something they wanted to do.

“Their grandparents had been so decimated by the manner in which state aid was applied.

“The people of Scotland who really know and understand the impact of the policies of state aid are all very aware of the damage that was done, which is almost irreparable.”
