Tories desert Open Britain: Lib Dem response

The Liberal Democrats have criticised Conservative MPs who voted Remain but have now left Open Britain.

Alistair Carmichael MP, who sits on the Brexit committee, said:

“This shows that there are no sensible Conservative MPs left. They are all Brexiteers now.

“The Conservative Party has now ganged up behind a hard Brexit.

“Theresa May has chosen to leave the single market and even the small band of Conservative MPs who recognised how economically damaging this will be have caved in.

“They had a choice to put their country before their party, but they chose to put their party first.

“Open Britain is the successor to Stronger In that had the bulk of the Conservative high command behind it. It shows how far the Conservative Party has veered to the right that it is no longer supported by a single Conservative MP.

“Anyone who opposes a hard Brexit must vote Liberal Democrat to keep Britain open, tolerant and united.”
