Leader of the Liberal Democrats Jo Swinson has today slammed this Queen’s speech as nothing more that a "charade." Jo Swinson said:
"This Queen’s speech is a charade.
"‘Boris Johnson is pursuing a Brexit deal that will be hugely damaging for our economy, our NHS and our security.
"There is nothing in this Queen’s speech that will bring comfort to the factory worker set to lose their job, or the families struggling to put food on the table because of his Brexit policy.
"The Liberal Democrats want to stop Brexit, and keep the best deal we have as members of the European Union."
