Prime Minister is putting internal party strife above what’s best for Britain - Farron


Commenting on the Prime Minister’s announcement that Government Ministers will be able to campaign on both sides of the European referendum campaign, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said David Cameron needed to show the ‘courage of his convictions’.

Tim Farron said:

“David Cameron should have the courage of his convictions and make the case we all know he wants to make, that by staying in Europe, Britain can thrive.

“The Prime Minister is failing to lead his own Government, let alone the country, putting his own internal party strife above what’s best for Britain.

“Now is not the time to back down. The Government should take a collective position on this issue, and if ministers disagree with the Prime Minister they should resign. 

“The Liberal Democrats are the only party united in the case to remain. Together we created the world’s largest free trade area, we delivered peace, and we gave the British people the opportunity to live, work and travel freely. History shows that Britain is better when it is united with Europe.”
