Widdecombe fuels election pact scandal

Following Ann Widdecombe's comments on LBC on Thursday evening that she was offered a role in the Brexit negotiations to stand down in the general election, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:

"This revelation by Ann Widdecombe is yet more evidence that the Conservative Party may have acted illegally in offering her a job in the Brexit negotiations in return for her standing aside in the 2019 election.

"The allegation must be added to the police investigation into whether peerages were offered to Brexit party candidates to stand down.This is just further evidence that Boris Johnson's Conservatives are not fit for government.

"Only the Liberal Democrats can take seats of the Conservatives in this election. Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to take on Boris Johnson, stop Brexit, and build a brighter future."
