Time for a People's Vote

December 13, 2018 10:25 AM

Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable has said "Having seen the Conservative backbenches will not support her deal the Prime Minister must change course. Her deal is doomed to defeat in the Commons, so she should show real leadership by putting this question back to the public in a People's Vote. The EU is clear that there is no more negotiating to do, so it's this deal or No Brexit. That is the choice on which every voter should now have a final say - and Liberal Democrats will campaign vigorously for the UK to remain a full member of the EU."

Liberal Democrat MP Ed Davey said "The Tory Party's challenge to Theresa May's leadership speaks volumes: Conservative MPs can change their minds, but the British people cannot! What utter hypocrites!"

Ipswich Liberal Democrat councillor Inga Lockington has been asked for comment by BBC local news and has said "Now we know so much more about the implications of Leaving the EU than we did at the time of the Referendum and since then so many more young people have become able to vote in the last two and a half years, they should be allowed to have a say in their future before it is to late."
