Liberal Democrats pledge to take Britain back into Europe.

June 26, 2016 8:29 PM

Local camaigner, Mark Jewell is urging local residents to join the Liberal Democrats and help restore Britains prosperity and role in the world.

Mark explained, "Liberal Democrats have always believed that Britain should be outward facing, collaborating with other countries to tackle global challenges. Our membership of the European Union allows us to do that.

Britain has now voted to leave. The margin of victory was small and risks dividing our country. Nonetheless, we must respect the outcome of the referendum in how we talk about moving forward.

Nigel Farage, Boris Johnson and Michael Gove won this campaign deceiving voters. They offered cheap slogans and easy answers that they knew they could never keep. Their hollow pledge of £350 million for the NHS has already unravelled and people will be right to feel angry that they have been let down again.

I am delighted that our Lib Dem leader, Tim Farron, has pledged to take Britain back into Europe.

At the same time, we must address the difficult issues that this referendum has raised about Europe and our Country - but with real answers and not cheap slogans.

Help us build a better Britain."
