A recent internal poll by the Conservative party predicted they could lose the 27 seats they gained from the Lib Dems at the last election.
Tim Farron MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said," "This election is your chance to change the direction of our country. If you want to avoid a disastrous Hard Brexit. If you want to keep Britain in the Single Market. If you want a Britain that is open, tolerant and united, this is your chance. Only the Liberal Democrats can prevent a Conservative majority."
Sir Graham Watson said of the call for a Snap Election: “I’m not at all surprised.
“I think this shows a Prime Minister seeking to take advantage of opposition weakness at a time she should be concentrating on the business of our withdrawal from the European Union.
“This will create greater instability and uncertainty for companies already worried about the future.
“It is the last thing Britain needs at the moment.
“This may turn out to be a Brexit election and the result may not be one she expected.
“Here in North Somerset, the Liberal Democrats have been working hard for some months and are ready for an election.”
Excited and raring to get going to tackle the Conservatives' plan for a hard Brexit and harsh cuts to frontline services?
