Liberal Democrats believe that Britain is better off in the EU. The Conservatives are making a mess of Brexit, and the Labour Leadership continue to support them. Lib Dem believe people should be able to choose whether the deal is the right deal for Britain’s future. Nationwide they launch the Exit from Brexit campaign, which is moving faster with the upcoming MEP election. Lib Dem launched their manifesto for Europe on May 9, 2019. The leader of the party Sir Vince Cable mentioned, we are running our campaign on a clear message – a vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit. We were the first to call for a People’s Vote in 2016 – and we haven’t stopped fighting for it, nearly 3 years later. We want Britain to remain in the EU because it’s best for our economy, our public services and best for the environment
