Cable: We are the stop Brexit party

Speaking on the Andrew Marr show this morning, ahead of this weeks European elections, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:

I think it is now quite likely we will get the People’s Vote that we are fighting for and it can be done by October.

We are talking about having a referendum on the terms of Brexit, now knowing what it entails.

It’s absolutely clear that no Brexit at all is the best option and that is what a vote for the Liberal Democrats is for.

We are the stop Brexit party.

  • Be careful using a phrase like “It’s absolutely clear that no Brexit at all…”

    There’s a great risk of confusion between this and ‘no deal’

    There is an increasing likelihood of a leadership election in the Conservative Party soon. They should not assume that they are electing a Prime Minister, nor should the press and media assume that.
    I am not a conservative, but I do think that those who want to be Tory leader should assert that they would put a motion of confidence to the House of Commons.
    That would be democratic, but if they do not do that they should realistically expect that any, or most, or all of the opposition parties will put a motion of no confidence to the Commons.
    In the past a Queen’s, or King’s, Speech has been treated as the equivalent of a motion of confidence, so that defeat implies resignation.
    Therefore Tory candidates should look beyond the narrow limits of the Tory selectorate in the Commons and the Tory party membership in the country.
    What would do in Northern Ireland or instance?
