Flying our flags – @timfarron and @libdems at Conference

Tim Farron has shown British politics the meaning of political leadership. On Brexit, his fight for the public to be allowed a further say and against ultra-Brexit that no-one voted for has been bold.  In contrast, the leader of the supposed official opposition has dithered.  The unelected Prime Minister pursues a course she herself described as a catastrophe.

Too much of our future is falling under the Brexit axe, which people were reassured by the Leave campaign would not happen.

So, straight after business in the conference hall was concluded on Saturday, Tim Farron was able to join a large group of EU campaigners in the party for this photograph, taken by the skilled hands of Jonathan Wallace:

We are proud to be British and European and proud to fly both flags.  To my mind, both the Union Flag (or Union Jack if you prefer – there are a lot of views about what the proper name is) and the European flag today represent freedom, justice, the rule of law and peace between nations.

If you are interested in doing more to campaign on European issues you may like to join LDEG, the Liberal Democrat European Group.

    I would have included the flags of the four nations of the UK. Nationalism for these countries is not incompatible with support for the UK or the EU. Regards
