Now more than ever, people are crying out for a new vision for our country.
They want an alternative to creeping nationalism and populism. People want a new vision for our country, and only the Liberal Democrats can supply that. That’s why today, we’re announcing our new Shadow Cabinet to stop Brexit.
People want a new vision for our country, and only the Liberal Democrats can supply that.
The Conservatives want no deal Brexit, no matter the cost. Labour is more interested in winning a General Election than remaining in the EU. Only we can be the real alternative our country so desperately needs.
This is a team that’s ready to offer solutions to the big issues people are facing, like rampant inequality, the climate crisis and a cash-strapped NHS. But Brexit has starved these issues of oxygen. And whenever we do head into the next General Election, we’ll do so as the biggest, strongest Remain party. Our new Shadow Cabinet is ready to secure a People’s Vote – and win it.
