PM shamefully sides with Putin, not people

by Steve Beasant on 10 January, 2019

Yesterday, during PMQs, Liberal Democrat MP Layla Moran warned the country “deserves better” than a Prime Minister siding with Vladimir Putin by denying the country a People’s Vote.

Speaking during Prime Minister’s Questions, Layla Moran said:

“Brexit is clearly in Russia’s geopolitical interest and it was chilling to hear Vladimir Putin parroting the exact words of the Prime Minister on why we shouldn’t be holding a referendum.”

That second quote should be: “Meanwhile, poll after poll shows a majority for a people’s vote as it becomes clear just how damaging Brexit would be. Mr Speaker, whose side is this Prime Minister on? Putin, or the people’s?”

Following the exchange, Layla Moran said:

“There you have it. When it comes to giving the people the democratic right to judge her Brexit deal, this Conservative Prime Minister chooses to shamefully agree with Putin and deny the people a voice.

“The public deserve better, and the Liberal Democrats demand better. That is why the Liberal Democrats are on the side of the people in fighting for them to have a final say on Brexit, including the option to remain in the EU.”
