People in Tatton should vote for the Liberal Democrats to prevent a hard Brexit and protect the local economy, the party’s local Chair has said today.
The Liberal Democrats are standing on a clear platform to prevent a hard Brexit by staying in the Single Market, and to give the British people the final say on the Brexit deal through a referendum.
Tatton Lib Dem Chair Gareth Wilson commented:
“This election is a huge opportunity for voters in Tatton to change the direction of our country and prevent a disastrous hard Brexit.
“People in Tatton voted decisively to remain in the EU, and certainly did not vote for the extreme form of Brexit that Theresa May has imposed on us after being backed by Labour.
“For all those who want to protect our local economy by staying in the Single Market and ensure the people have the final say over what comes next, this is your chance.
On George Osborne's decision not to stand, Gareth said:
"I'm delighted the George Osborne has decided not to stand in the upcoming election, although frankly I'm disappointed that it was only the threat of being challenged in an election that made him stand down. Being the Editor of a major British newspaper while being an MP was a national scandal and I doubt even he could have stood the public scrutiny a general election campaign would have brought on the matter"
