Responding to Labour MP Jon Trickett’s comments that if Labour got into government and negotiated a new Brexit deal he would vote for Brexit over Remain, Liberal Democrat Shadow Europe Secretary Tom Brake MP said:
“Jon Trickett’s confirmation that he would vote and campaign for Brexit in a referendum shows yet again that Labour are a party of Brexit.
“Trickett is a member of the Labour Shadow Cabinet. His comments demonstrate that a Labour Government would let down Remainers right across the country.
“Liberal Democrats are clear that whether Tory blue or Labour red, there is no form of Brexit that is good for the UK. That is why every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to Stop Brexit and stay in the EU.”
