[100 word news] – ‘Britain has blown a raspberry at hard Brexit’, says Paddy Ashdown

Former Lib Dem leader Paddy Ashdown has said that Thursday’s election result shows that the British people have rejected a hard Brexit.

‘The prime minister asked for a mandate for a hard Brexit, and the people of Britain blew her the largest raspberry possible’.

‘What kind of authority has she to negotiate in Europe now? They’ll treat her as a joke, and rightly so’.

‘There’s only one kind of Brexit that’s likely to get through the house of Commons – and that’s a soft one’.

Mr. Ashdown was also critical of both major parties, saying:

‘We’ve got a Conservative Party that is indistinguishable now in policy terms from Ukip, and we have a Labour Party which is an old-fashioned socialist party. Vast swathes of ordinary Britons, the moderate progressives, have nobody to represent them’.
