Tim Farron has said that Lib Dem opposition to a ‘hard’ Brexit will be vindicated within the next two years, even if the party fails to make gains in the upcoming general election.
‘I don’t want to sound overconfident, but we will be proved right within two years’.
Mr Farron is offering the British people a second referendum on Brexit, with the option to accept the final deal, or reject it and stay in the EU.
Responding to underwhelming opinion polls, he defended his pro-Europe strategy, saying:
‘I think it will win seats by the way, and we have seen progress, but my motivation is to a degree whether I can look my kids in the eye and say I did everything I could’.
