Lib Dem backs May

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

A LIB­ERAL Demo­crat MP has re­signed the party whip so he can sup­port Theresa May’s Brexit deal.

Stephen Lloyd said he was “gen­uinely sad­dened” over the de­ci­sion, but had promised his con­stituents that he would sup­port the deal the Prime Min­is­ter brought back from the EU.

And he said he had pledged to not back calls for a sec­ond ref­er­en­dum – a key Lib Dem pol­icy.
