Lib Dems: Unholy alliance signs up to Johnson's disastrous deal
Responding to reports every Conservative Party candidate has signed up to vote for Boris Johnson's deal, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
Boris Johnson's deal would be bad for our NHS, bad for our economy and bad for our environment. Every Conservative candidate has now signed up to an unholy alliance with Johnson, Farage, and others that will make people poorer.
"The Liberal Democrats are the only party at this election that can take seats from the Conservatives and stop Boris Johnson's recklessness.
"Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to defeat Johnson, stop Brexit and build a brighter future."
The Liberal Democrats in Europe also added their concern that the interests of UK citizens in Europe were not taken into account when the deal was signed. Conservative MPs are now effectively being told that the interests of their constituents who live overseas are irrelevant. This was not the message that was given during the referendum campaign. Only the Liberal Democrat MPs in Westminster have continually supported citizens' rights for the British in Europe together with the European Parliament's Brexit coordinator, Guy Verhofstadt, and other members of the Renew Europe group in the parliament.
