Theresa May's vision of Britain’s future is exactly the same as Nigel Farage’s – out of the single market and the customs union, poorer and shut off from our European neighbours.
And the Labour Party have collaborated on Brexit, voting with the Tories time after time – or choosing to sit on the sidelines. Labour voted alongside the Tories to trigger ‘Article 50’ to leave Europe. That includes your local Labour MP Jim Fitzpatrick, who voted with the Tories despite a 67% Remain vote in our area.
In January, the Lib Dems, Green Party, SNP and Plaid Cymru held a summit to work together to take on the Tories over Brexit. Corbyn refused to attend, and has publicly ruled out Britain staying in the single market. That’s not good enough! This is the single most important process in a generation. Get it wrong – and British society, and our economy, will be feeling the pain for decades.
If Labour won’t fight this extreme Tory Brexit – the Liberal Democrats will. That’s why we’re calling for the British people to have the vote on the final deal, with an option to Remain in Europe if we don't like what's on the table. That way, if Theresa May offers us a bad deal, we can get an exit from Brexit.
