Responding to the Scottish Government's Constitutional Relations Secretary, Mike Russell's appearance on BBC GMS this morning, where he said people would require a say on the final outcome of the Brexit negotiations, Scottish Liberal Democrat Europe spokesperson Tavish Scott MSP commented:

"It appears the SNP are finally starting to see the light. Mike Russell is right that the British people deserve to have the final say on whether Theresa May's ropey Brexit deal is good enough. He does however need to give up on the constant caveats. This isn't about political posturing. It's about warding off economic disaster.

"We're two years into this process and the Cabinet is in the midst of yet another crisis meeting to settle on its position. That is absolutely ridiculous.

"Political momentum is building for a People's Vote and hundreds of thousands have taken to the streets to fight for one. All pro-Europeans need to get on side before it is too late."
