Rutherglen Liberal Democrat Councillor Robert Brown hailed the Liberal Democrat success un the European elections.
“The Liberal Democrats are the big winners of the night, regaining a European seat in Scotland and electing 16 MEPs across the United Kingdom. Our South Lanarkshire vote is up substantially too with Labour and the Tories both decimated. Liberal Democrats are back with a bang.
The Liberal Democrats are the lead Party of Remain – Remain Parties beat the Parties of hard Brexit across Britain. It is time for the government to think again about Brexit and begin by ruling out the disaster of a No Deal Brexit.
The voters have sent a powerful message that the fudge and confusion of the Tory Government and Labour Opposition over Brexit will no longer do. Liberal Democrats demand better.”
