Britain's Liberal Democrats formally adopt 'Stop Brexit' policy

Party leader Jo Swinson had proposed the shift in stance on Europe in the run up to the four-day event and on Sunday the East Dunbartonshire MP received a huge boost from members when they overwhelmingly backed her plan to revoke Article 50, should she be installed in Downing Street.

Mr Gyimah, who was once considered a rising star in the party under former prime ministers David Cameron and Theresa May, was one of the 21 Tory MPs who had the whip removed for voting to block a no-deal Brexit. The Prime Minister was more forthright, comparing the United Kingdom to the incredible hulk, soon to break free of the manacles of the EU. I was evangelical about the Conservative Party but I've been consistent, in the sense that with Brexit we have to go back to the people'.

"I don't feel personally that there are enough people out there trying to find ways to re-unite our country", Sir Norman told BBC Radio 4's Today programme.

Former universities minister Sam Gyimah was announced as a new member of the Liberal Democrats at its annual conference in Bournemouth, on the southern English coast.

"That's a different question to saying Jeremy Corbyn is fit to be prime minister".

Lib Dem leader Jo Swinson, however, insisted it was the right approach for her party and said a second referendum was still part of their Brexit policy.

Troubling trend: They won't get much accomplished on offense if they can't find some kind of combination that works up front. Wilkinson is the guy the Broncos would use if they wanted to move left tackle Garett Bolles out of the lineup.

The Dorset conference has so far been dominated by the news that the Lib Dems would cancel Brexit without a referendum if the party is elected to power with a majority at the next election.

The Liberal Democrats hold just 18 seats in Britain's 650-seat parliament but the party has cast itself as the only "Stop Brexit" party, hoping to pick up votes from the 16 million who voted to remain in the European Union in 2016 and win enough seats to form what would be an unprecedented Liberal Democrat government.

"But where we agree with others on stopping Brexit, we are in those discussions".

He continued: "I think the refusal to compromise at that point in the way opened the door to Nigel Farage and Boris Johnson to then prosper".

He said most voters now know "in no uncertain terms" that a vote for the Lib Dems is to "unequivocally" stop Brexit.
