Liberal Democrat VE Day Tribute

Paying tribute to the sacrifices made during the Second World War as the UK marks Victory in Europe Day, Liberal Democrat Acting Leader Ed Davey said:


"On this 75th anniversary of VE Day we remember all those who put their lives at risk to defend our freedoms and defeat fascism.

"Today we honour those who made the ultimate sacrifice, as well as all today's armed forces who continue to sacrifice so much to keep us all safe. We cannot thank them enough for what they are doing at home and around the world today, defending freedom.

"We must never grow complacent or be fooled into thinking that war is impossible. This anniversary we must honour the sacrifices made and recommit to ensuring that international cooperation and hard-won peace across Europe is protected so that we may never suffer the death and destruction of World War II again."

Liberal Democrat Defence Spokesperson Jamie Stone also paid tribute, saying:

"Although the 75th anniversary of VE Day will be spent under lockdown, we can all take this opportunity to honour those who sacrificed for our freedom.

"Today I remember the millions who died fighting in the war from the safety of my home. I am sincerely grateful for the arrangement of virtual remembrance services in Scotland and across the UK to commemorate the heroes of World War II."
