    Brexit is bad for Britain. Join Liberal Democrats at 1200 noon Saturday 20 October near Hyde Park Corner to march for a Peoples' Vote and an Exit from Brexit.

    Brexiteers want to take the country back - we want to take our country forward!

    In a letter published last week (11 October) in the Worthing Herald, Liberal Democrat European Group (LDEG) Chair, Nick Hopkinson, argues the chances of a People's Vote and an Exit from Brexit have grown substantially:

    People are changing their minds about Brexit as our political and economic mess worsens. Recent polls show solid leads in favour of a Peoples Vote on any Brexit deal and a slowly growing, but slim, majority for staying in the European Union (EU).

    I have four key messages: 1. Brexit is not a done deal; 2. Brexit can be stopped; 3. The #peoplesvote is theway to #exitfrombrexit; 4. Each and every one of us needs to get behind the Peoples Vote and capitalise on it as the only national party which is wholeheartedly supporting it.

    By Ashley Cowburn in The Independent

    Lib Dem Leader Sir Vince Cable is set to claim it is possible to legislate for a fresh referendum within weeks and for it to be held before the Article 50 process expires.

    In a speech during a rally on Saturday - organised by the People's Vote campaign for a fresh referendum - Sir Vince is expected to dismiss concerns from Brexiteer "fanatics" that there is no time to get legislation through parliament for a second public vote.
