Are the Liberal Democrats really the party of Remain?

Beastrabban, over on his weblog, thinks the Lib Dems are leading their supporters right up the garden path to a “no deal” Brexit.

In response to my article earlier this week in which a Scottish Liberal Democrat MP admitted he would prefer “no deal” to putting Jeremy Corbyn in 10 Downing Street, the Beast wrote:

“I don’t see the Lib Dems as a genuine party of ‘remain’. Their stance on this is a fraud, as is their entire party.

“Apparently, the proportion of Lib Dem members supporting Remain is only 2% higher than the Labour Party. Swinson herself did precious little to back the ‘Remain’ campaign during the referendum. While Corbyn crisscrossed the country, Swinson issued one, lukewarm tweet.

“I very, very much doubt that she personally backs ‘Remain’ at all. 

“But she does back the Tories. She consistently voted for all of the Tory government’s policies, including its attacks on the NHS, welfare state, education, the whole lot. She’s a ‘progressive’ who wants to put up a statue to Maggie Thatcher. Who was a friend of the Chilean Fascist General Pinochet.”

He adds that in his opinion “she’s a liar and a fraud. Her party are also lying to you. They want another right-wing government with them in it, which will privatise the NHS and cut welfare benefits even further. They also want a ‘no deal’ Brexit, but realise that to get support they have to pretend to be the party of Remain. And hence all the lying about how Jeremy Corbyn doesn’t have the numbers, isn’t the right man, etc.

“Behind the yellow facade, they’re just Tories. Treat them like it, and don’t listen or give them your precious votes.”

    I disagree. At least the Tories are honest about what they want to do. You know where you stand with them.

      No they aren’t!

      I doubt that Boris Johnson has meant a single word he has said in the House of Commons since he became prime minister!
