This election is our chance to Stop Brexit
Responding to the vote in Parliament for a General Election, Jamie Stone, Liberal Democrat MP for Caithness, Sutherland and Easter Ross, said:
“This General Election is our best chance to elect a government to stop Brexit.
“The Liberal Democrats are the strongest party of Remain and the only party promising to protect both our relationship with Europe and the Union.”
Mr Stone also called on both the Scottish and UK Governments to work to make a winter election as safe and accessible as possible, ensuring that all people who want to exercise their democratic right are able to.
Speaking in the Commons Mr Stone said:
“I represent the coldest and most northerly constituency in the British mainland. It is going to get dark a hell of a lot earlier where I come from than it does in St Albans, and the streets and roads are going to be an awful lot icier.
“This is perhaps an appeal for the Leader of the House but may I ask the Government to co-ordinate as closely as possible with the Scottish Government to make sure that the streets and roads are safe for the people who want to come out to exercise their democratic right?"
