Liberal Democrats are open and outward-looking. We want an Exit from Brexit. We passionately believe that Britain is better off in the EU. We will fight against the Conservatives disastrous hard Brexit – their choice to make the UK a poorer place.
We acknowledge the result of the 2016 referendum, which gave the government a mandate to start negotiations to leave – but we believe the final decision should be made by the British people, not by politicians.
Theresa May and the Conservatives are making a mess of Brexit
Everyone can see the Conservatives are making a mess of Brexit. It is taking longer than we thought; costing more than we thought; it’s more complicated than we thought. In all this confusion and chaos, what else don’t we know?
The Conservatives gave the people the first say on Brexit, it’s time they committed to giving the people the final say, including the option to exit from Brexit.
Labour is helping the Conservatives deliver Brexit
Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party leadership are helping the Conservatives
deliver a destructive Brexit that will be bad for Britain.
At every opportunity, they are aiding and abetting the Conservatives’ shambolic plans. They’re betraying their own voters, 70% of whom want to stop Brexit.
Vince Cable’s Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting for an Exit from Brexit
We demand better for Britain. We want a country that gives our young people
the best opportunities in life; that welcomes refugees and works with our closest neighbours to tackle global issues such as climate change and security. We want the UK and its institutions – such as our NHS – to thrive.
And we’re very clear that our vision can only be realised if the UK remains a
member of the European Union.
