Commenting on the report that SNP MSP Alex Neil voted to leave the European Union, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
“Today’s revelation is of no real surprise considering the First Minister herself kept telling her supporters that we’d have another independence referendum if the UK voted to leave the EU.
“Instead of gambling with the livelihood of those who will be negatively impacted by Brexit, the First Minister can redeem herself if she joins the Liberal Democrats in helping keep the UK within the EU.
“After the yesterday’s high court ruling the momentum is with us who wish to see a referendum on terms of Brexit. Voting for a departure is different from voting for a destination. ”
