The Liberal Democrats are the ONLY party to have a plan for Britain and the EU.
At the party conference in Brighton, Liberal Democrat members agreed that following the Brexit negotiations, the British people should decide whether to accept the new terms or to stay a full member of the EU.
President Barack Obama used his final visit to the UK to show strong support for Britain’s continued membership of the EU. The relationship between the US and the UK is one of the most vital for international security and economic development and the views of the President should be taken seriously. President Obama’s intervention makes it clear that the vote on 23rd June will have consequences far beyond the UK.
Liberal Democrats believe that being an active member of the EU helps Britain to tackle the greatest problems facing us in the 21st Century. Working as a block of 28 countries allows Britain to combat climate change, tackle cross border crime, and effectively control large corporations, ensuring that taxes are paid fairly by all businesses.
We are a Liberal party which believes in open markets and free movement of people, goods and services as we know that these increase prosperity for all. We are an open, optimistic and outward-facing party and we want Britain to stand proud in the EU and continue to play a leading role in the world. Britain is better in Europe and Europe is better with Britain.
