Last quote by Kezia Dugdale

I am the only leader that has travelled from Stornaway to Lockerbie and everywhere I go I meet people who are distressed, upset, worried about the instability that a second referendum would cause and indeed the damage that independence would do in terms of pounds15 billion of additional cuts.feedback

Kezia Dugdale has most recently been quoted in an article called 'Misinterpreted' Jeremy Corbyn is not IRA apologist. Kezia Dugdale said, “It is very clear to me that we are 20 years on from that Good Friday Agreement and that transformed Northern Ireland. And we must do everything we can to maintain peace in Northern Ireland and that's a commitment in this manifesto and it's one that wouldn't have happened if we hadn't have a Labour government and it is exactly why we need a Labour government again. If, like me, you want to break the hold that nationalism has on our politics, vote for the only party that can defeat the SNP in most places in Scotland - the Labour Party.”.

Kezia Dugdale quotes

This is obviously a disappointing election for Labour, but thousands of people in communities across Scotland have placed their trust in us and we will continue to play a major role in local government.feedback

The historic achievements of the last Labour government are still having a massive impact on the lives of people today. Labour choices in government mean workers are now getting a fair wage, despite Tory opposition. Labour choices in government took 600,000 children out of poverty across the UK – 120,000 of them in Scotland - despite Tory claims it was impossible.feedback

And Labour delivered peace in Northern Ireland, ending one of the world's longest-running and most fractious conflicts. This is what Labour does in government and what it can do if you vote Labour on June 8.feedback

At this election, the choice again will be clear: a Tory Party intent on a hard and damaging Brexit; or a Labour Party that will oppose a second independence referendum and fight for a better future for everybody. We will work tirelessly to elect Jeremy Corbyn Prime Minister and deliver a Labour government.feedback

The polls are undoubtedly very challenging but as Jeremy Corbyn has said in the past we're on an election footing and has been on an election footing. We relish the opportunity to take on and defeat this Tory government.feedback

People across Scotland will be dismayed that Nicola Sturgeon is more focused on rerunning the arguments of the past than doing her job of running our public services. Scotland doesn't need or want a second independence referendum. There is absolutely no evidence that another divisive referendum is the will of the people of Scotland.feedback

Each of these issues constitute an individual scandal. Together they represent a complete abdication of responsibility. But we aren't discussing any of those things … not when there is yet another independence debate to be had.feedback

We have already heard from the first minister about the need to respect the will of this parliament. If only she respected the mandates given to government by this chamber before now. When this parliament votes for another referendum as it inevitably will, thanks to the perpetual crutch that the Greens provide, let's not pretend it reflects the will of the Scottish people, because it doesn't. The Scottish people don't want a divisive referendum.feedback

Nicola Sturgeon wakes up every single day thinking of ways to engineer another referendum because leaving the UK is the only thing that matters to her. It isn't improving education in Scotland; it isn't lifting children out of poverty; it isn't giving us a health service fit for the 21st century. It's independence - she is a nationalist and that will always come first. But the will of the Scottish people was very clearly expressed in 2014.feedback

At the moment, there is not a clear choice for Scottish voters. If we have to have another referendum … we have to make sure people understand what they get either way.feedback

Gordon and I have been working closely together as Labour puts forward an alternative to the constitutional extremes offered by the SNP and the Tories. Last month, I was delighted to secure the support of party conference for our vision of a federal UK. Our call for a reformed UK is about meeting the demand for change. One message from the independence and EU referendums was that people wanted more control over their lives. That's why Labour's plan for a People's Constitutional Convention and a federal UK will transform where political and economic power will lie in our country.feedback

We know that together we are stronger when the nations of our United Kingdom work together rather than split apart. Scottish Labour will vote against a second referendum next week and the Labour Party I lead will never support leaving the UK.feedback

Scotland is already divided enough. We do not want to be divided again, but that is exactly what another independence referendum would do.feedback

This is yet another attempt by Nicola Sturgeon to sow division and uncertainty, at a time when the country needs to pull together more than ever.feedback
