Attempt to change and maintain direction at the same time described as ‘absolutely bizarre’ by BBC interviewer
The LibDems have been described as ‘absolutely bizarre’ on live national television after new recruit Angela Smith – welcomed into the party in spite of her infamous ‘funny tinge’ racism scandal and wearing an overdone orange pullover to better fit in at their conference – claimed the LibDems would still ‘prefer’ to have a new EU referendum.
One day after they formalised a policy of cancelling Brexit with no referendum instead:
“No no no.”
“It is. It is.”
“No, the LibDems’ policy is that we still prefer to settle the issue of Brexit in a new people’s vote, in a referendum.”
Party leader Jo Swinson yesterday confirmed unequivocally to the BBC’s Andrew Marr that the party now wants to stop Brexit and revoke Article 50:
So quite what the question would be in a referendum to ‘settle the issue’ that the LibDems have just said they’ve already settled isn’t clear.
What is clear is that the LibDems are all over the place – and u-turning so fast they’re in danger of spinning themselves into the ground.
