She said, "I find that while traveling through provincial England I do not like the infrastructure as well as in Scotland.

"Social housing has not been built here for years, whereas in Scotland we build a lot of social housing.

"I think that many workers in the working class in England have been convinced that the cause of their suffering lies. the fact that they can not get a house, the fact that they can not get a well-paid job – OK, they can get a job, but not a properly paid job.

"It has made them believe that it is the immigrants' fault. If it is the fault of this poisonous conservative government. "

Ms. Cherry (Edinburgh South West) spoke on the second day of the debate over Theresa May's Brexit deal focused on security and immigration.

She criticized how the resignation agreement was put together and said that Scotland was "excluded from the negotiations".

She said that First Minister Nicola Sturgeon's offer to "hold a differentiated agreement" for the country, which would allow him to stay in the EU single market, was "completely ignored".

Mrs Cherry added: "My point is that the marginalization of Scotland and the very weak negotiating position within the Union, the United Kingdom, has been very much exposed by Brexit."

"The Brexit process has told Scottish voters a lot about the reality of unbundling and that the transfer of power is indeed a power and that the UK is not the federation of equals we said was before 2014, but that a unified state was gained in which power was transferred to the center when it is convenient, "she said.

The SNP Frontbencher said in the end that the UK was "no union in which Scotland can continue to function well" when it spoke out for another referendum on independence.
