Responding to Nigel Farage’s comments that deals are being done at a local level between Brexit Party and Conservative candidates, Liberal Democrat Shadow Brexit Secretary Tom Brake said:
“The Conservative party is no longer recognisable to millions of moderate voters across the country. They have gone from the party of Ken Clarke and Michael Heseltine to the party of Nigel Farage and Donald Trump.
“With so little to separate the Brexit Party and Tories, it’s little wonder their candidates no longer see each other as competition.
“The Liberal Democrats are the only party that will end this nightmare by stopping Brexit and building a brighter future for our country.”
