We're sending Sheila Ritchie to Brussels after the latest European election where we achieved our best results ever. There's never been a better time to be a Lib Dem 🎉
Tonight the Welsh and Scottish Parliaments speak out together against the threat of a no deal Brexit.
It is obvious that we must avoid this outcome.
Cabinet Ministers have spoken out.
Business has spoken out.
Even Brexiteers use it as a threat to get a supposed better deal from the EU.
It is therefore helpful that the National Assembly for Wales and the Scottish Parliament speak out together against this deeply damaging option.
But that is not enough.
Now that the Labour Party are on side we need to unite for a people’s vote too.
There is an opportunity for all leaders to stand together at the people’s vote March on the 23rd March in London.
Vince Cable will be there.
I would hope that Nicola Sturgeon will be there.
And there could be no better way to make Jeremy Corbyn’s support for a people’s vote clear than by standing before the marchers.
