Britain deserves a better opposition

Labour U-turn on Immigration Bill

Responding to the Immigration Bill passing its second reading this evening, Liberal Democrat Home Affairs Spokesperson Ed Davey said:

“The Government’s Immigration Bill is so bad that even MPs from their own party joined the Liberal Democrats in the ‘No’ lobby to vote against it this evening.
“But the most bizarre element of today’s debate was Labour’s U-turn on the Bill - from their original plan to abstain, to a mid-debate decision to vote with Liberal Democrats, against this Bill. 

“It is beyond belief that some Tory MPs were more organised on opposing the Government's hostile immigration policies than the Labour shadow cabinet. Just like on a People’s Vote, when it comes to the crunch, Jeremy Corbyn and co are absolutely useless.
“Britain deserves a better opposition, and the Liberal Democrats demand better. We will continue to fiercely oppose Tory plans to end free movement and fight for a People’s Vote and an exit from Brexit.”
