Stop Brexit and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus

The Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus in public services and tackling inequality

 

The Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain in the UK.

At our general election campaign launch, leader Jo Swinson declared that the Liberal Democrats will Stop Brexit and use the £50 billion Remain Bonus to invest in public services and tackle inequality.

 

We are the only party that wants to Stop Brexit to invest in our UK family of nations. The £50 billion injection into our public services can only be delivered by the Liberal Democrat plan.

 

“Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit, build a brighter future and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus in our public services.”

 

Stopping Brexit will generate a Remain Bonus for the public finances because under Remain the economy will grow faster than under Brexit, leading to higher GDP and tax receipts. This in line with the projections of the UK Government, and the independent Institute for Fiscal Studies says our estimate is “reasonable”.

 

This means more money to invest in children’s education, confront the climate emergency and transform mental health services.

 

Brexit - whether its red or blue – will be disastrous for jobs, our economy and public services.

 

The Conservatives have caused a national crisis.

 

Jeremy Corbyn still won’t tell you whether he’d support leave or remain.

 

Meanwhile the SNP spent more money in the Shetland by-election than they did on the entire EU referendum campaign. It took years of pestering by the Liberal Democrats before Nicola Sturgeon reluctantly backed a People’s Vote.

 

Remain voters in Scotland should join millions across the UK to stop Brexit by voting Liberal Democrat.

 

Vote for the party that wants to Stop Brexit and invest the £50 billion Remain Bonus in public services and tackling inequality.
