Lib Dems say they'll cancel Brexit if they win general election

Its members voted for the new policy on Sunday after it was moved by former party leader, Vince Cable.

Jo Swinson has warned broadcasters not to "freeze" her out of TV debates, amid growing split in her party over revoking Article 50.

The party is holding its autumn conference in Bournemouth, England.

But the new policy means that when a United Kingdom general election is called, the party will halt Brexit without a further public vote.

Speaking to Radio 4 Today, Lamb said: "I don't feel, personally, that there enough people out there trying to find ways of reuniting the people in our country and I think that the polarisation that we are seeing is actually incredibly risky".

Leader Jo Swinson has said the manifesto pledge made the Lib Dems the "stop Brexit" party.

There was support from leading members of the party to revoke Article 50 if Ms Swinson is elected to Number 10.

Sir Vince said "we are remain", adding: "Whatever happens in the next few weeks of parliamentary twists and turns, we must argue - since no one else can be relied upon to do so - that none of the several mutually exclusive versions of Brexit on offer, soft or hard, are as good as the deal we now have".

Labour shadow justice secretary Richard Burgon said: "The Lib Dems have become home from home for disgruntled Tory politicians".

"I think we've got to be careful what we wish for, if we take this to the very limit in a situation where one side or the other is vanquished entirely then there is a real danger we break the social contract in this country".

Chuka Umunna told the conference the newly approved policy would reinforce the party's "unequivocal" message on Brexit.

While there, he was presented with a "Bo****ks to Brexit" t-shrt.

The New European is proud of its journalism and we hope you are proud of it too.

She's seen numerous defections in the Conservative and Labour parties lately, such as Tory rebel Sam Gyimah.

He is the sixth British MP to defect to the Lib Dems this year.

Prime Minister Johnson wants to call an election, but has so far been blocked by opponents, including the Liberal Democrats, who are desperate to avert a no deal scenario on the leave date of October 31.

He referred to the indicative votes held in April when MPs failed to find an alternative to Theresa May's Brexit deal.
