Brexit: Sturgeon in London to urge MPs to reject deal
She will speak to opposition parties about working together to vote down the deal.
The First Minister is in London to urge MPs to reject the Prime Minister's Brexit deal.
Nicola Sturgeon will speak to opposition parties on Monday about working together to vote down the EU Withdrawal Agreement in the crunch parliamentary vote on December 11.
She will campaign for the two-year period for leaving the EU triggered by Article 50 to be extended to give Parliament time to find an alternative way forward.
The First Minister's visit, as she heads to climate change talks in Poland, comes after all parties at Holyrood, except the Conservatives, united to back a motion opposing Theresa May's Brexit deal.
MSPs will vote on the motion at the Scottish Parliament on Wednesday.
Speaking before she travelled to London, the SNP leader said: "The last week has been a watershed moment in the Brexit process.
"Having now finally published its own official analysis of the economic consequences of Brexit, the UK Government can no longer hide behind their own spin - it is clear that any kind of Brexit will make Scotland and the UK poorer.
"The reality is the best deal is remaining in the EU, which is exactly what the people of Scotland voted for.
"With so much at stake for people's jobs and living standards, it is vital that MPs come together to reject the PM's deal, to rule out a no-deal Brexit and to secure an extension to Article 50.
"As soon as the Prime Minister's deal has been put to bed, all parties and MPs must come together to agree a better way forward."
