    By refusing to work with the European Union, importing and exporting goods has become much harder. The skilled worker visa system brings high costs, inflexibility and bureaucracy. It's too hard to hire from the EU, and many EU nationals have gone home. And that's all thanks to this divisive government.

Students have enhanced their education via the Erasmus scheme. Artists and musicians have been able to travel freely between us and the continent.

    Conference, it is a tremendous honour for me to address you for the first time as the leader of our Scottish party.

    I'm conscious that today I am addressing some of my political heroes.

    I cannot overstate the sense of responsibility I feel to the great Scottish Liberals on whose shoulders I stand, and whose legacy I inherit, among them friends and mentors like Jim Wallace, Jo Swinson and Charles Kennedy.
