In response to Prime Minister Theresa May’s speech earlier today which outlined her intention to call for a General Election to take place on 8 June, Mark Platt, Chair of Westminster and City of London Lib Dems, Alexander Harding, PPC for Westminster North, and Bridget Fox, PPC for the Cities of London and Westminster, said:
“Theresa may think she can push through a damaging Hard Brexit by calling an early election, but she does not speak for half of the country who do not agree with her vision.
“Nor many Leave voters, who do not want to jeopardise our vital access to the Single Market and the rights of EU citizens living in Britain as well as Brits living elsewhere in Europe.
“As Westminster and City of London Liberal Democrats, we will fight to put an end to the chaotic mess this government has been leading us into once and for all.”
