MSP Gil Paterson has called out the Tory government as a “lame duck” following an empty Queen’s Speech.
The Clydebank and Milngavie MSP said: “How can we expect this bunch to go into Brexit negotiations with the EU, after presenting plans to do virtually nothing in government over the next two years, and come out with a good deal?
“The Queen’s Speech was another humiliating moment for the Tory government, which has sealed itself as a lame duck administration.
“It’s all very sad, though, that a party’s infighting can inflict so much damage not just to the countries of the UK, but to our European allies as well.
“I am proud of the Scottish Parliament, SNP government and our MPs as we show a unified, competent approach to governing Scotland. It is in stark contrast to the mess going on in London.”
