The Liberal Democrats have launched their plan for the election. We want to Stop Brexit, Build a Brighter Future.
Stopping Brexit, will generate a Remain Bonus for the public finances because under Remain, the economy will grow faster than under Brexit, leading to higher GDP and consequently higher public sector current receipts. This adds up to £50 billion over 5 years.
This number is a fair assessment of the best available forecasts, comparing Remain to a Brexit deal scenario based on Institute for Fiscal Studies data.
The Liberal Democrats are standing up to stop Brexit and build a brighter future for the UK.
Brexit has taken far longer and cost far more than anyone said it would. But any form of Brexit will damage our jobs, our economy and our public services, starving them of vital cash as the economy struggles along.
The Liberal Democrats will stop Brexit and then use the £50bn Remain Bonus to invest in our public services.
Every vote for the Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit, build a brighter future and invest the £50bn Remain bonus in our vital public services.
