Rennie calls for Article 50 extension and People's Vote

Scottish Liberal Democrat leader Willie Rennie has today called for Article 50 to be extended and for the Government to commit to a People's Vote.

Mr Rennie said:

“Parliament has spoken and Theresa May’s deal is dead. A no deal Brexit would be devastating, with British exports snarled up in bureaucratic form filling and potentially shortages of food and medicine.

“It baffles me that any government that seriously claimed to have its citizen’s interests at heart could contemplate this. That’s why it is essential that the Prime Minister – or Parliament – withdraw Article 50

“Extending Article 50 would give the time for Labour and the Conservatives to take a long hard look at themselves and admit that Brexit is a disaster. It would also allow us the time to legislate for a People’s Vote with the option of remaining in the EU.”
