The Independent Group of MPs

Councillor Carole Mulroney, Leader of the Liberal Democrat group on Southend Borough Council talks about the new Independent Group in Westminster:

"The dramatic scenes we have all witnessed in Westminster over the last few days make it abundantly clear that both the Tories and Labour are parties divided amongst themselves and are offering nothing of clarity or unity to a divided country.

Liberal Democrats have never wavered in their position on Brexit and have at the same time maintained a deep concern for all the pressing issues we face whilst the circus goes on, such as the parlous state of the NHS, housing and homelessness, to name just a few.

We cannot continue like this.

Liberal Democrats want to work with others to bring us together again as a country for all to benefit in our future.

So we say to those who find themselves questioning their party's position, talk to us and understand the way we work locally for local people, let's work together and demand better for us all
