The Liberal Democrats fought long and hard to stop Brexit.
And our values have not changed. At every step of the Brexit
process, we have been clear and outspoken in our belief that Britain
is better off within the EU. We will always stand firm in our
pro-European, internationalist values because we know, we are
so much better off together than we will ever be alone.
However, we have now left the EU - and our country is facing
the chaos of a pandemic that is getting out of control once again.
Our job today is to stop the chaos of a no-deal Brexit.
Today, Liberal Democrat conference called for the Government to
protect the UK in its Brexit negotiations. They must put country
before Party or Leave alliances, and work for the best Brexit deal for
Britain. We’re calling on the government to:
Honour the commitments it made in the Withdrawal
Agreement and the Political Declaration
- Protect and where possible enhance the rights of UK
citizens in the EU and vice versa
- Respect the European Convention on Human Rights
and Charter of Fundamental Rights for all UK
- Maintain the closest possible alignment with the
EU towards the customs union, single market and freedom of

As the numbers in Parliament stand, we cannot stop Brexit. What we
can do is work to minimise the damage of the country’s exit
from the EU to ensure the best deal for the British people.
It is our duty to work across the divides of Leave and Remain,
to protect the influence, reputation, safety and security of our
country, and the livelihoods of British people. Now is not the time to
pick sides. It is time to come together and work for the good
of our country.
