Dithering Labour leadership shows they're not fit for office

Dr Wendy TaylorFollowing a Labour Shadow Cabinet member's appearance on Sky's Sophie Ridge show, Wendy Taylor, Liberal Democrats parliamentary candidate for Newcastle East said:

"The fact Rebecca Long-Bailey refused to say where Labour would stand in a people's vote on Sunday only goes to show the Labour leadership are not fit for office.

"It is beyond outrageous that almost three and a half years on from the referendum the Labour Party leadership will not be honest with the British public about where they stand. Time and time again Labour have tried to pull the wool over the electorate's eyes as they dither as a result of the schisms within their party.

"The Liberal Democrats couldn't be clearer: we want to stop Brexit as we believe the best deal we can get is the one we already have a members of the EU. In this election the Liberal Democrats will give the public the opportunity to stop Brexit and build a brighter future.

"If the Labour Party cannot be clear with the public about what they're offering, they should make way for those who can."
