UK's Lib Dem Promises Referendum on EU Deal With Option to Remain

Christy Curtis | 29 May, 2017, 05:03

The opinion polls suggest the Lib Dems will fail to make a breakthrough at the election. "And if you don't like the deal you should be able to reject it and choose to remain in Europe".

The Lib Dem manifesto set out plans to fight hard Brexit, ban diesel cars and help young people buy their first home.

Legalising cannabis, restricting junk food advertising to children, and suspending the use of bee-harming insecticides called neonicotinoids are also featured in the party's manifesto.

The party has ruled out plans to scrap tuition fees, instead planning to restore maintenance grants.

Writing in the manifesto's introduction, Mr Farron will say: "There is a complete absence of real opposition from Jeremy Corbyn's Labour Party".

The Lib Dem manifesto, which will be launched on Wednesday evening in east London, pledges to "protect Britain's place in Europe" and the party says it "continues to believe that there is no deal as good for the United Kingdom outside the European Union as the one it already has as a member".

"The SNP want to break up the United Kingdom single market that is worth four times as much".

"That decision alone is a time bomb under our economy", warned Mr Farron.

"It's clear that the NHS and schools are already struggling to recruit the staff they need. It is going to wreck our children's future for decades to come". He has taken over the Conservative Party. "We will stand up for our schools and hospitals and give hard-working nurses, teachers and police the pay rise they deserve".

"What we've got is a merger between Ukip and the Tories. After all, who needs Ukip if the Government is doing what they want anyway?"

The visa that allowed Indian and other non-EU students to work for two years after completing studies was abolished in 2012, when the Liberal Democrats were in a coalition government with the Conservative Party under David Cameron's prime ministership.

'Not Theresa May's cold, mean-spirited Britain'.

"The Britain I love is generous and compassionate". But we lost - and I accept that. The Britain I love is open, tolerant and united.

The tactic has won the backing of Nicole Verat-Pant, a French citizen who can not vote in the upcoming election but whose husband will vote for the Lib Dems.

Liberal Democrat target seats in the West Midlands include Birmingham Yardley, held by Labour, and Solihull, held by the Conservatives.

The prime minister's Conservative Party has surged in the polls in recent months, now leading with 49 percent of the vote according to a YouGov poll published on May 12.

"The evidence suggests that regulating cannabis as we propose does not increase usage of it, does protect people from the more risky strands of it, and reduces cannabis as a gateway drug".
