Liberal Democrats The deal Boris Johnson has secured is bad for Britain. That's
why we'll be voting against it.

<[link removed]>

John, today is the day we have dreaded. Today MPs will vote on the
Conservatives' damaging Brexit deal. 

You and I know that there isn’t any deal that is as good as the one Britain
had as a member of the European Union.

That’s as true today as it was four years ago. Boris Johnson’s deal is bad for
jobs, bad for security, and bad for our environment.

It’s bad for farmers; bad for our fishermen; bad for EU Citizens living in the
UK & British citizens living in the EU. It’s bad for you, for me and everyone
living in the UK.

I take no pleasure in that. It’s our country, our children and our
grandchildren who will pay the price.

Today, I’ll be (virtually) leading ourLiberal Democrat MPs through the lobbies
to vote against this wretched deal.

Not just because I want Britain to remain a member of the EU, but because this
is a terrible deal. With both Labour and the Conservatives voting for the deal,
it will pass and I felt it was important for our staunch opposition to Brexit
to be recorded again.

Today is a day neither of us wanted to come. For years, we campaigned, marched
and protested. We did everything we could to try and stop this.

But today is not the end of the story.

Over the weeks and months to come, the real impact of Boris Johnson’s Brexit
deal will become painfully clear.

Our job now is not to gloat and say “we told you so”. Our job is to hold the
Prime Minister to account for the ways that his disastrous deal has let the
country down.

Now is not the time to give up. If you want a Britain that is fairer, greener
and more caring, thenyou need to fight for it.

I can’t promise you that it will be quick, or that it will be easy. But I can
promise that working together; we can build a better Britain.

Ed Davey
Leader of the Liberal Democrats
