With UK reputation on the line, the fight is far from over

by Ian Shires on 15 September, 2020

Sarah Olney - WikipediaResponding to votes tonight in the House of Commons on the Internal Market Bill, Liberal Democrat Business Spokesperson Sarah Olney said:

With our reputation around the world on the line, the fight is far from over.

The excuses we have heard for breaking international law from the mouth of the Prime Minister show the depths to which the Conservative party has plummeted.

Backbench Conservative MPs have a duty to follow their conscious and show Boris Johnson that his reckless approach will not be tolerated.

The Liberal Democrats will continue the fight to remove the aspects of the Bill which would break international law and trash the UK’s reputation. We will also keep pushing to ensure devolved administrations have a say when it comes to the UK internal market.
