SNP minister forced to defend Nicola Sturgeon’s ‘impossible’ Brexit deal for Scotland

Two of Scotland’s leading political figures have travelled to Europe this week to discuss the implications of Brexit for Edinburgh.

Brexit Minister, Mike Russell, was caught making inaccurate claims to Brussels diplomats that Scottish ministers were in talks with the Spanish government about Britain’s exit from the EU.

Meanwhile, Alex Salmond MP spoke with the four European Free Trade Association members in Switzerland, hoping to secure a similar deal to the Swiss who have access to the EU single market.
