Lib Dems on Wilson’s analysis of serious problems with quick shift to new currency

Responding to Andrew Wilson's currency article in the National, Scottish Liberal Democrat constitutional affairs spokesperson Wendy Chamberlain said:

"Andrew Wilson has succinctly summarised the array of serious problems that a quick shift to a new currency would bring. Unfortunately for him, the SNP are intent on bringing that about - no matter the 'uncertainty, risk and chaos' he warns of.

"People are sick of politicians playing with their futures and their finances for ideological aims. The SNP have been trashing their own independence blueprint issue by issue and the currency palaver is just the latest in a long list of misjudgements.

"Scots want the Scottish Government to be focused on the problems in our schools, NHS and social care. Leaving the UK will make those public services poorer. It's not the way forward."
