Commenting in response to the statement made by Mike Russell to the Scottish Parliament this afternoon, Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie MSP said:
“The Minister has missed a huge opportunity today. Instead of whinging that the Supreme Court ruling didn’t go fully in their favour they should see yesterday as an opportunity to join the campaign in calling for a Brexit deal referendum.
“The answer to the reckless nationalism of the Tories is not the nationalism of the SNP and the Minister must rise to the occasion of the opportunity that yesterday’s ruling presented. Liberal Democrats remain steadfast in the belief that the British public should be given a say on the terms of Brexit.”
