Responding to Theresa May's comments calling on people to vote "in the national interest" and claiming EU countries are lining up to oppose Britain over Brexit, Liberal Democrat Leader Tim Farron said:
“Theresa May has betrayed the national interest by opting for a disastrous hard Brexit that will wreck our economy.
“Now she is posturing to try and win votes at home instead of building bridges abroad with our allies in Europe.
“It is shameless opportunism that has nothing to do with May’s hand in the Brexit talks and everything to with attempting a naked power grab.
“If you want to change Britain’s future, prevent a hard Brexit and ensure a strong opposition, vote for the Liberal Democrats."
