Cable: Brexiters losing argument and votes

April 9, 2019 10:25 AM

Following the votes in the House of Commons tonight, Leader of the Liberal Democrats Vince Cable said:

"Parliament has now taken back control and the UK is on course for an extension to Article 50 and European Parliament elections.

"Brexiters are losing the argument and losing votes in the Commons by healthy margins.

"The Prime Minister must now show leadership by offering a People's Vote. It is her only chance to get her deal through Parliament and a crucial opportunity to show the changing will of the public, who are swinging firmly behind Remain."
