A stunning victory!

A Liberal Democrat amendment by Tavish Scott MSP has committed Holyrood to "providing unequivocal support for a public vote on the final terms of the Brexit deal".

It won cross-party support, and passed overwhelmingly in the Scottish Parliament, with 106 votes for and 8 against - and one MSP who said he voted against by mistake!

The Scottish Parliament giving its unequivocal support to a People's Vote is an important step in the UK-wide campaign for a vote on the deal.

The Liberal Democrats have been leading the fight against Brexit since 2016. More and more people now agree with us that we need a People's Vote on the final deal.

The Liberal Democrats have dedicated more money, and more time and more of our key campaigners to stopping Brexit.

And it's working. So far we have:

  • Sent 355,000 target letters to voters
  • Reached 2,200,000 voters online
  • Recruited 150,000 campaign supporters
  • Recruited 60,000 new members because of our Brexit campaigning
  • Held 2 million conversations on Brexit with voters
  • Defeated the government 17 times in parliament on Brexit
  • Been a part of 6 national anti-Brexit marches.
