Following Nigel Farage’s announcement that the Brexit Party won't contest the 317 seats won by the Tories in 2017, but will still stand in all Labour seats, the Conservative Party has now all but become the Brexit Party.

East Surrey Lib Dem's Parliamentary Candidate, Alex Ehmann, comments: "It is now clear. The Conservative Party is the Brexit Party. A vote for Johnson is a vote for Farage. If you don't want their outdated, narrow vision for this country and would prefer a brighter future for your children and grandchildren then vote for the Liberal Democrats.

"Moderate, forward-thinking Conservative voters are now consigned to voting for a Conservative Party that is now in thrall to Farage and his hard-Brexit party.”

Recent events show us that the UK already has control over its sovereignty, courts, laws and democratic processes. All while in the EU with its wealth of advantages.

Alex Ehmann adds, "Many traditional Conservative voters are telling me they cannot support this hard-Brexit coalition and will instead be switching their support to the Liberal Democrats at this election.

"’This stomach-churning Brexit roller-coaster; driven by Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson, is a ride that countless voters are telling me they just want to get off.”

Liberal Democrats demand better for Britain. We want to give all our children a brighter future in a fairer Britain where people are decent to each other, with good schools and hospitals, a clean environment and an innovative economy.
