After much speculation, the Conservative candidate in the Witney by-election has admitted he voted to Leave the EU.
Liz Leffman, Liberal Democrat candidate, said:
“David Cameron and the many moderate Witney Conservatives who campaigned to keep Britain in Europe must be horrified. Is the Conservative candidate here not aware that the majority of voters in Witney voted to Remain?
“If elected he would be just another Conservative MP supporting Brexit ministers playing Russian roulette with the British economy.
“If Conservative voters in West Oxfordshire lend me their votes just this once, Theresa May might think again before pulling Britain out of the Single Market and risking Oxfordshire jobs.
“The Liberal Democrats are now the free trade, pro-business party, and are the only opposition in Witney to the Conservative Brexit government.”
