Liz Kendall's speech in the Brexit debate

Watch my speech in the Brexit debate: I voted against the Government’s withdrawal agreement today because it is not what people were promised, it would give us a worse deal than we have now and we would face more uncertainty for years to come. We cannot allow the future of this country to be held to ransom by hard-line Tory Breixteers who put their own jobs and ambitions before the jobs and ambitions of people in this country.

On Friday 29th March I voted against the Government’s Brexit Withdrawal Agreement for the third time. The Prime Minister’s Agreement is not what people were promised during the 2016 referendum, it would give us a worse deal than we have now and – far from ‘sorting Brexit’ – it would mean the uncertainty facing our country would go on for years to come.

Now Theresa May has said she will step down if her Withdrawal Agreement is approved by Parliament, I am deeply concerned that the fundamental questions and choices facing this country will be made by a hard-line Brexiteer who will succeed her as Tory leader. We cannot allow the future of this country to be held to ransom by the never-ending internal Tory psychodrama and by people who want to put their own jobs and ambitions before the jobs and ambitions of people in this country.
