Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson admits electoral pact plot as rumours swirl ‚Remain Alliance‘ could target 60 seats

Talks have been under way between the unashamedly pro-EU Lib Dems, Plaid Cymru and the Greens maximise their chances in key constituencies in the December 12 election.

The pact would see two of the three parties stand aside to favour the one with the best chance of victory – replicating the success in the Brecon and Radnorshire by-election.

Lib Dem Compares Brexit to Nazi Germany and Domestic Abuse

The candidate claimed that Brexit is causing divisions that have “split families and friends have led to huge rises in violent crime on our streets and domestic abuse in our homes.” He went on to say:

“We have to stop this – just as we stopped the Nazis in Germany and their sympathizers in this country at the time from destroying this country in the 1930s.”

This would be a government of national betrayal

They’re openly, shamelessly talking about forcing out Boris Johnson and creating a ‘government of national unity’ whose job would be to delay Brexit – again – and then hold a second referendum or a General Election. That the political class is casually chatting about taking such a drastic, emergency, anti-democratic measure as setting up an unelected government to stop Brexit is the most worrying sign of the times yet.

Brexit latest: Opposition leaders to meet again to discuss stopping No Deal and Jo Swinson’s plan to ask for another extension

Parliament has already passed the so-called Benn Act requiring him to request a further extension to the Article 50 withdrawal process if he cannot get a new agreement by October 19.

But some on the opposition side fear that could leave too little time to take action through the courts if Mr Johnson tries to circumvent the legislation and push through a no-deal break.

Guy Verhofstadt is on stage getting applauded for saying the world of tomorrow will be one of empires. How do these people dare call themselves progressive? Guy’s done a great job of reminding me why I voted Brexit in the first place.

The rebel alliance has taken control of parliament – and Brexit. What happens next?

Every Monday, a group of unlikely bedfellows meet in Jeremy Corbyn’s parliamentary office. Jo Swinson, Liberal Democrat leader; Ian Blackford, the SNP’s Westminster leader; Caroline Lucas, the Green party’s sole MP; and Liz Saville Roberts from Plaid Cymru all gather to discuss their common aim — preventing a no-deal Brexit. This rebel alliance is more than just a group therapy session: last week, they succeeded in taking control of parliament and immediately started to give instructions to the Prime Minister.

Rogue Tories plot with Liberal Democrats: Rebel MPs stripped of the whip for voting against Boris Johnson’s Brexit policy on verge of agreeing Election pact with Jo Swinson’s party

Under the plan, if the rebels are not allowed back into the party, the Liberals and the Greens would not put up a candidate against MPs Rory Stewart, Sam Gyimah, Margot James and Dominic Grieve.

In return, if they were to beat the official Tory candidates and win election to the Commons, they would agree to take a ’soft whip‘ from the Liberals, meaning they would vote with Ms Swinson’s party on selected issues.

Sir Vince Cable to stress commitment to EU in farewell Liberal Democrat conference speech

The 75-year-old who will step down as leader after the local elections in May, said the party had to continue arguing for the benefits of staying in the European Union (EU) as the Brexit debate rages at Westminster.

Vince Cable to stand down as @LibDems leader. As one of the key people behind austerity he played a major part in the most destructive set of policies in my lifetime. The duplicity of his party after 2010 meant they were crushed. It also helped lay the foundations for Brexit.
