  • Vince Cable New Year Message 2018
    Article: Dec 31, 2017
    By Vince Cable MP, Leader of the Liberal Democrats

    There are very few people can say 2017 went exactly the way they wanted it to. Looking forward to 2018 it's clear that we have a lot of work to do.

    In 2018, we will continue to stand up for our values.

    We will offer people the choice of an Exit from Brexit. We have a big opportunity to win a real cash injection for the NHS. And we have a big opportunity to win the argument for thousands more affordable homes.

    All over the country, people are getting behind these campaigns by joining and supporting the Liberal Democrats.

    Thank you for everything you did in 2017 and let's make 2018 our year.

    Last night, instead of opposing the government, the Labour party clocked off early for Christmas and failed to back a Lib Dem Amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill.

    Last night our effort to enshrine in law a vote on the final Brexit deal was defeated by the Conservatives after Labour failed to show up. The Lib Dem amendment to the EU Withdrawal Bill, if it had been passed, would have seen the people have a final say on the deal Theresa May brought back from Brussels.
