Commenting on the news that COSLA is now in favour of a people’s vote, Scottish Liberal Democrat Leader Willie Rennie welcomed the move and said:
“It’s excellent news that COSLA has formalised widespread feeling in Scottish councils that it is the public who should be getting the final say on whether the Prime Minister’s Brexit deal is good enough.
“As momentum grows, people take to the streets in protest and councils make their voices heard, the Labour party must start to see that they’re on the wrong side of history on this one.
“People have endured two years of mismanaged Brexit negotiations and the outcome would leave us worse off than we are right now. Liberal Democrats demand better and a people’s vote.”
