The Brexit coordinator for the European Union has joined Sir Vince Cable and the Liberal Democrats on their European elections campaign trail. Mr Cable launched his party’s campaign this week with the message of “B****cks to Brexit” as they are battling to keep the UK in the European Union. Mr Cable believes the said the party’s “very clear, simple, unambiguous, honest message” will attract pro-EU Labour voters on May 23.
He said: “Nobody now seriously disputes the economic and the businesses arguments – even the defenders of Brexit acknowledge that if we leave the European Union we’ll be worse off.
“What they say is, ‘It’s a price worth paying’ – it’s usually someone else who’s going to end up paying the price.
“Somebody younger and more vulnerable.”
Mr Verhofstadt tweeted earlier this morning that it was time to “renew Europe”.
He wrote: “On my way to London with a strong team of @openvid candidates standing in the European Elections 2019.
“Looking forward to campaigning for a united Europe with our sister party the Lib Dems and Vince Cable.
“It is time to renew Europe.”
