Off to a flying start

Vince Cable and Liberal Democrats on Europe March 2017

We launched our European campaign on Friday – and the reception has been great.

We set out a simple, clear message – that a vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to stop Brexit. It’s resonated loud and clear with Remainers up and down the country.

This morning at the @LibDems Euro campaign launch. I don’t think they could make their central message in this campaign much clearer.

It’s a shame that other Remain parties didn’t want to work with us to maximise the return of pro-EU MPs. We’ll go our own way for now – but it’s a pity that others are putting their egos above the country’s needs.

“It’s true that the Brexit parties are also divided but we should be standing together – the millions of people in this country who voted Remain would expect us to stand together.”

The New Statesman was particularly impressed, describing our launch as “slick”. They pointed out something important, too – we have the know-how and experience to get MEPs elected:

Liberal Democrats use slick launch to stake claim to be Remainers’ best hope, says @stephenkb

Every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to stop Brexit. We’re the only party that’s been fighting to give you the final say since 24th June 2016. Over 250,000 people have joined our campaign for a People’s Vote since then.

“We are the party of Remain,” says Sir Vince Cable launching the Lib Dem’s European election campaign, saying it’s time to ask people: “#Brexit: Now you’ve seen it, is this what you voted for?”

A big win for us in the European elections will send a powerful message to the government – Britain wants to Remain. Demand better than Brexit – get involved with our European election campaign today:
