Lib Dems Promise Another Brexit Vote

Britain’s Liberal Democrat Party, trailing significantly behind Prime Minister Theresa May’s Conservatives and the opposition Labour party, vowed on Wednesday to hold a second referendum on a final Brexit deal if it wins next month’s election.

Launching his party’s proposals for the June 8 election, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said they would give Britons a say on the divorce deal struck with the European Union after two years of talks, saying a bad agreement would wreck Britain’s future.

“You should have your say on the Brexit deal in a referendum,” Farron said. “And if you don’t like the deal you should be able to reject it and choose to remain in Europe.”
