Responding to the EU27’s endorsement of the UK’s withdrawal agreement, the Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:
"This is a sad day for everyone involved; the deal the EU have endorsed remains a disaster for the British people.
"What has been agreed is vague at best and is essentially an agreement to have an agreement. There is still no majority in Parliament for it, and “No Brexit” remains the only real alternative.
"Nobody voted to make themselves poorer and damage the UK’s standing in the world. It is time the Prime Minister granted a People’s Vote, with the option to remain in the EU."
