    When there are conflicts in the world, we know that as a country we are not alone.

    We have our friends, our partners, through NATO, through the Council of Europe, United Nations and of course the European Union.

    As a political party the Liberal Democrats are equally not alone, working with sister parties across the globe through Liberal International, and within Europe, not just the European Union, via ALDE.

More recently they latched onto immigration, with Brexiteers offering up conflicting numbers of how many millions of foreigners are on their way.
