Lib Dems reject post-election coalition

Lib Dem Leader Tim Farron has announced that the Liberal Democrats will not enter into a coalition with either Theresa May’s Conservatives or Jeremy Corbyn’s Labour party after June’s General Election.


Tim Farron said: 

“The Liberal Democrats will not join a coalition with Theresa May's Conservatives or Jeremy Corbyn's Labour. We don't rule out future coalitions - we believe in plural politics - but we won't enter one with either May or Corbyn.”

Tom Brake said:

“The Liberal Democrats are committed to providing a decent and proper opposition to this Conservative Government that has scrapped the money set aside for St Helier hospital, cutting £12.6 million from Sutton’s schools, and pulling the UK out of the single market with damaging plans for a hard Brexit.

This election is a chance to send a message to the government and change the direction of our country. If you want properly funded public services and to keep us in the single market, this is your chance.”
