I'll be casting my first ever national vote tomorrow - for the Liberal Democrats

Tomorrow, my first ever vote is going to be a vote for the Liberal Democrats to stop Brexit. Just in case the ‘Bollocks to Brexit’ campaign slogan didn’t make it clear enough ; every vote for the Lib Dems is a vote to Stop Brexit and remain in the European Union. T hey’re the biggest remain party and were the first to call for a People’s Vote back in 2016. I wasn’t old enough to vote in the referendum. I didn’t get the chance to make my voice heard. So tomorrow is my first chance to vote against Brexit. That’s why my first ever vote will be for the Liberal Democrats. I’ll be voting to protect opportunities for young people like myself; to make sure EU funding can continue to reduce regional inequality like we feel in my home of Shropshire; and to safeguard our public services, jobs, and economy. My first ever vote will be for the Liberal Democrats. Any Brexit, whether it’s Labour red or Tory blue, will devastate our country. Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour party can no longer cla Read more »

Do you want to stop Brexit? Vote for the Liberal Democrats.

I'm proud to have been the anti-Brexit Spokesperson for a party that has been unequivocal about Brexit for three years. Meanwhile, like many people, my colleagues and I have attempted to decipher Corbyn’s riddles and work out exactly what the Labour position is on Brexit. Labour, Conservatives, UKIP, or the Brexit Party: they all want Brexit. We've urged him to back us on key votes. We've tabled amendments to give the people the final say on May’s shambolic deal, inviting him to join us in the voting lobbies. We've marched on the streets. But all the time, we've been left wondering. Where’s Jeremy Corbyn? And it’s not just Labour. Labour, Conservatives, UKIP, or the Brexit Party: they all want Brexit.

48 hours to save the country - what you missed at our final election rally

Tim Farron, Layla Moran and Vince Cable spoke at our last rally of the EU elections in London this evening. And they were joined by a special guest - Andrew MacKinlay, former Labour MP for Thurrock.  Read their barnstorming speeches and catch up on the action here: TIM FARRON What you do in the last few hours matters massively. Our message of Remain is matter. Our place in the EU is synonymous with Britain being part of the biggest peace process in the world. If we do well in the European elections, it changes everything. The dominant narrative of the Brexit debate that has played out in the press for the last three years changes. It is no longer the story of how we deliver Brexit, it is the story of how we stop Brexit. In the last four years, we have rebuilt this party, growing back members, supporters, MPs, councils and councillors.  We now have just 48 hours to save this country. I am here so I can say to my children that I did everything I could to save this country. Be Read more »

No guaranteed People's Vote? No support from us.

Theresa May got up and gave another Brexit speech earlier and confirmed what we already knew. She's going to put the Withdrawal Agreement Bill to Parliament - with some minor changes. Amongst those, she offered a vote on a People's Vote - but only if the bill passes its second reading. Liberal Democrats are clear. We want to stop Brexit. We won't vote for any deal that doesn't promise to give the people the final say. Theresa May is offering this because she's running scared. She knows we're on the march and closer to ever to securing a People's Vote. She accidentally admitted as much by a Freudian slip in her speech: Ha! She twitched when saying "Liberal Democrat" - We've got her rattled! #TheresaMay #Brexit #LibDems — Rob Perry 🔶 (@ActualRobPerry) May 21, 2019 On Thursday, the people of the United Kingdom have a chance to tell this shambolic Tory government: we've had enough .
