LibDems wel­come Cableas leader

Rutherglen Reformer - - News -

Ruther­glen branch of the Lib­eral Democrats have wel­comed Vince Cable as the party’s new leader.

Coun­cil­lor Robert Brown said the for­mer Glas­gow Labour coun­cil­lor had the “stand­ing and ex­pe­ri­ence” to make sure their mes­sage is strongly heard.

And he reck­ons Mr Cable, who has pre­dicted that Brexit may not hap­pen, can se­cure the Lib Dems’ place as a party still op­posed to leav­ing the EU.

He said: “It is in­creas­ingly clear that the whole sorry Brexit process is a slow­mov­ing car crash and that it is time to think again.

“We have the un­prece­dented sit­u­a­tion of an in­com­pe­tent Con­ser­va­tive prime min­is­ter and gov­ern­ment who seem in­ca­pable of ne­go­ti­at­ing with the Euro­pean Union– and a Labour op­po­si­tion leader who has to­tally lost the plot.

“Jeremy Cor­byn and the Labour Party have given the Tories a blank cheque on a hard Brexit.

“Vince Cable and the Lib­eral Democrats of­fer a dif­fer­ent fu­ture and I think we will be joined by quite a few Labour and Tory MPs look­ing for a way out of the mess as the Brexit ne­go­ti­a­tion plunges on­wards and down­wards.”
