Commenting on Pete Wishart MP's claims that Britishness would be enhanced by separating Scotland from the rest of the UK, Jo Swinson MP, deputy leader of the Scottish Liberal Democrats said:

"Since May's election the SNP have been redefining their mandate with endless demands on constitutional change and independence - and yet we have still not heard about the costs.

"These strange comments are another attempt to confuse the issue. How can Britishness be enhanced by breaking up the United Kingdom? It is time for the SNP to come clean on what separation will actually mean and on the real costs of Scottish independence."
