Default Lib Dem MP Stephen Lloyd resigns party whip over Brexit

He Resigned from the Lib Dems
so he can back the PM's Brexit Deal.

Lloyd is now a Independent MP


[Lloyd – who was re-elected with a
slim majority of 1,609 last June having
lost his seat in 2015 – made a manifesto pledge to respect the result of the EU referendum
and vote for whatever deal the Prime Minister brought back,

despite his vote to Remain and his party’s opposition to Brexit.
Eastbourne voted to leave in 2016.]

I do admire him sticking to what he said however it looks pretty poor, his party having only 12 MPs and him distancing himself from their biggest policy at present.

The Lib Dems really have big problems still.

Good grief Vince Cable.
Does anyone other than the smallest of minorities care what Cable says or even thinks.
