Lib Dems pledge to take Britain back into Europe


Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has pledged to fight the next General Election on a platform taking Britain back into Europe.

Since Britain voted for Brexit on Thursday thousands of people have joined the Liberal Democrats.

Tim Farron has now said that in any upcoming national election he will promise to rejoin the European Union.

The economic uncertainty of Brexit will affect jobs, people's homes and livelihoods.

The Liberal Democrats accept the result of the referendum but plan to make the case for us to rejoin the heart of Europe. We believe the Single Market is vital to the countries ongoing economic prosperity.

Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said:

“For many millions of people, this was not just a vote about Europe. It was a howl of anger at politicians and institutions who they felt they were out of touch and had let them down.
 
The British people deserve the chance not to be stuck with the appalling consequences of a Leave campaign that stoked that anger with the lies of Farage, Johnson and Gove.
 
The Liberal Democrats will fight the next election on a clear and unequivocal promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the United Kingdom in the European Union, not out.
 
If you agree with us, join us to make this happen.”
 
Local Lib Dem Campaigner James MacCleary added:
 
“Within 24 hours the cheap bus slogans of Farage, Johnson and Gove were unravelling. On £350 million for the NHS, on immigration, it is clear that they will fail to deliver what people thought they had voted for. Once again people will feel betrayed by out of touch politicians.
 
"The Liberal Democrats are the only party united behind a future for Britain inside the European Union.”
