FOREST OF DEAN LIBERAL DEMOCRATS
Britain’s best chance to succeed is within the EU
Liberal Democrats are the only party that has consistently championed Britain’s membership
of the European Union, because we believe that Britain’s best chance to succeed is
within the EU.
While we respect the outcome of the referendum held in June 2016, we believe that
Britain is a more prosperous country when we are part of the world’s largest economy,
working in partnership with our closest neighbours and allies to tackle the biggest
We believe that free trade is a good thing. It creates jobs, increases prosperity
and helps pay for things like the NHS, schools and public services. Our livelihoods
are improved because of free trade - including through our membership of the Single
Market. That is why we are fighting for Britain at the very minimum to remain a member
of the Single Market.
The British people voted for departure but not for a destination, which is why we
are also calling for the government to give the British people a vote on the final
deal that they negotiate with Europe.
The terms of Brexit will have a huge impact on jobs, security and the opportunity
to travel and live abroad, and the Tory Brexit government should therefore be made
to put their deal to the British people before it is finalised.
After the Brexit Vote, Tim Farron, leader of the Liberal Democrats, said “Our fight for an open, optimistic, hopeful, diverse and tolerant Britain is needed now more than ever”.
