• Credit card changes are win for the EU not Tories - Cable

    Commenting on the new EU rules banning credit card surcharges, Vince Cable, Leader of the Liberal Democrats, said:

    “Once again the Tories are claiming a popular policy that they had nothing to do with.

    “These new rules will make things easier, cheaper and more efficient for consumers. This is another good example of EU rules helping people in their everyday lives. Unfortunately this doesn’t match Theresa May’s spin so instead the Tories are lying to the public.

    “This is a welcome change that gives more freedom and flexibility to people in their everyday lives.”

    Sadiq Khan's Brexit report should make bedtime reading for Jeremy Corbyn

    Brexit could cause the UK to lose half a million jobs and nearly £50bn in investment by 2030, a report commissioned by Sadiq Khan has found.

    The London Mayor said the government should negotiate to stay in the single market and customs union. It comes days after Jeremy Corbyn refused to attend a cross-party summit on keeping the UK in the single market.

    Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake commented:

    “This bombshell report should make obligatory bedtime reading for Jeremy Corbyn.

    “Half a million jobs could be a lost as a result of the hard Brexit that Corbyn has ordered his MPs to vote for.

    “The Labour leadership must listen to the Mayor of London and back efforts to minimise the impact of Brexit by keeping Britain in the Single Market and Customs Union.

    “It’s also crucial that the option of an exit from Brexit is kept on the table through a vote on the deal.

    “We can protect jobs and living standards against a botched Conservative Brexit, but only if Labour comes off the fence.”
