Responding to the announcement of an snap general election, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:

"The Liberal Democrats are relishing the prospect of this election.

"It is a chance to change the direction of the whole of the UK.

"Our optimistic agenda is pro-UK, pro-EU and progressive. We stand with the majority opinion in this country.

"At this election we will stand proud for a United Kingdom within the European single market.

"We will avoid a disastrous hard Brexit and keep Britain united. Liberal Democrats are only party that can stop a Conservative majority across the UK.

"If people want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united, this is the chance."
