Lidington’s comments on rejoining the EU – Tom Brake responds

by Steve Beasant on 20 January, 2018

Responding to reports in The Telegraph that David Lidington has said the UK could rejoin the EU in the future, Liberal Democrat Brexit spokesperson Tom Brake said:

“Whilst I welcome David Lidington’s suggestion that the UK could rejoin a reformed EU, it would be more effective for the UK to be at the heart of that reform process from the outset. The UK, which has always been very influential in the EU, is best placed to play a part in driving reform by remaining a member.

“As a Liberal Democrat, I want people to have control over the future of our country, and that has to start by giving them a vote on the Brexit deal when it is done, so they can choose to exit from Brexit if they don’t like it”
