“So it’s a bit of spin, with respect, that we always get from the Lib Dems.

“But the noteworthy thing is this, general elections invariably do not turn out to be single-issue polls.”

It comes as Lib Dems members voted on Sunday in favour of new party design to revoke Brexit in the event the party reaches a governing majority at the next unspecific elections.
