Vince Cable speaks at Lib Dem conference.

Last night, Labour failed to back a Liberal Democrat amendment which would hold open membership of the single market.

Once again, Labour have helped the Conservatives drive through an extreme and damaging Brexit.

Labour let down British workers tonight.

This abstention ends any pretence that Jeremy Corbyn is fighting for us to stay in the single market.

Corbyn whipped his MPs to support the Conservatives, sitting on his hands rather than voting against their extreme Brexit plans.

This is now a Tory-Labour Brexit.
