A Crack in the Mould?

From the Chair of Broxtowe Liberal Democrats:

“The resignation on Wednesday of Broxtowe’s MP, Anna Soubry, from the Conservative Party could be a pivotal event for our national politics.  With others, at the time of writing mainly defectors from the Labour Party, she is promoting the establishment of a centrist Independent Group in Parliament which may well develop into a formal political party able to fight elections.  Our Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Party has made friendly overtures towards the new Group, and we hope they will work closely together during these final weeks of the Brexit negotiations. We are conscious that we don’t know the policies of the new grouping.  It isn’t yet a party.  Will they support proportional representation and other important Liberal Democrat aims?  Nevertheless, we welcome the new centrist grouping and look forward to finding ways to co-operate with each other.”
