THERESA May has been accused of “re-writing history” over the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.

SNP Westminster leader Ian Blackford said the Prime Minister has misled the House of Commons.

Trying to defend her Brexit negotiations and responding to criticism from the SNP, Mrs May said during Prime Minister’s Questions that the SNP proposed Scotland leaving the UK “without a plan” in 2014.

The SNP said the Prime Minister made the claim despite despite the Scottish Government publishing the 600-page Scotland's Future White Paper.

Mr Blackford, who had said the Tories were creating uncertainty with their “shambolic Brexit negotiations”, raised a point of order with the Commons Speaker, John Bercow.

He said: “For the second day in row, Theresa May has misled the House of Commons.

“I called on the Prime Minister to confirm she will not bring the meaningful vote on her deal to this House less than two weeks before 29th March – her response was the height of arrogance from a government set on running down the clock.

“The Prime Minister tried to re-write history by claiming the SNP had not published a plan before the 2014 Scottish independence referendum.

“The Prime Minister must stop playing fast and loose. Businesses are begging for certainty. The economy is already suffering.

“Just 44 days from a ‘no deal’ scenario, the Prime Minister is hamstrung by her own Party – and rejected by European leaders.”
