Responding to the PM’s Brexit statement, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:
"The Prime Minister’s last ditch attempt to get her withdrawal agreement through the Commons without a confirmatory referendum attached is doomed to failure. Her authority is draining away.
“Unless and until the Government concedes that a People’s Vote must be in the legislation, she will not win our support.
“In the elections on Thursday, people have a clear opportunity to signal that they want to Stop Brexit in its tracks by backing the Liberal Democrats.”
