Loss of 100 Diageo jobs is the reality of a hard Conservative Brexit


The drinks company Diageo has announced plans to cut over 100 jobs in Scotland because of concerns over Brexit, it was reported today, including 70 redundancies in Fife and 35 near Glasgow.

Willie Rennie, Leader of the Scotttish Liberal Democrats and MSP for North East Fife, commented:

"This is the cold sober reality of a hard Conservative Brexit. Diageo is a huge employer in parts of Fife and Glasgow that needs these jobs.
 
"The Conservatives need to explain to the workers at these plants why they soon won't be getting a wage at the end of the month.
 
"Liberal Democrats are giving the voters in the general election a choice to change the direction of the country. We can turn back from the economic consequences of Brexit if we choose."
