Commenting on reports that the SNP will back Jeremy Corbyn as temporary Prime Minister, Scottish Liberal Democrat constitutional relations spokesperson Wendy Chamberlain said:

"We need a plan that has a whiff of a chance of working. Liberal Democrats will back a temporary government to stop a No Deal Brexit but that cannot be led by the divisive Jeremy Corbyn. The numbers don't add up. Even Nicola Sturgeon has said that she doesn't trust him.

"Jo Swinson is working hard across parties to build a majority at Westminster to stop the damage of Brexit. Anyone who wants to keep Scotland in the UK and the UK in the EU should vote for the Liberal Democrats."
