Lib Dems pledge to take Britain back into Europe

Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has pledged to fight the next General Election on a platform taking Britain back into Europe.

Since Britain voted for Brexit on Thursday thousands of people have joined the Liberal Democrats.

Tim Farron has now said that in any upcoming national election he will promise to rejoin the European Union.

The economic uncertainty will affect jobs, people's homes and livelihoods.

The Liberal Democrats accept the result of the referendum but plan to make the case for us to rejoin the heart of Europe.

Tim Farron said:

"For many millions of people, this was not just a vote about Europe. It was a howl of anger at politicians and institutions who they felt they were out of touch and had let them down.

"The British people deserve the chance not to be stuck with the appalling consequences of a Leave campaign that stoked that anger with the lies of Farage, Johnson and Gove.

"The Liberal Democrats will fight the next election on a clear promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the UK in the European Union, not out.

"If you agree with us, join us to make this happen."
