Mr Russell wonders why are the Scottish Conservatives supporting the UK government in its Brexit efforts.
He suggests it is because of the three things the party are trying to avoid:
- Recognition they are powerless
- The difference between governance since devolution, which is why their MSPs aspiring to be MPs
- Fear, as many of them know the deal is bad
The Brexit secretary says a no deal is unacceptable, as is the prime minister's deal.
He insists the time has come to say to the people of this country: "What do you want? Do you really want to continue with this farce and nonsense?"
If this debate does nothing else, it will send a message that the Scottish Conservatives are not representing Scotland Mr Russell concludes.
