In an interview with Sky News, the newly elected leader of the ultra remain party, LibDems concedes live to the nation saying that his party under his watch will not be pushing to rejoin the EU saying it’s “for the birds”.
Ed Davey said: “Look, we’ve opposed Brexit and everybody knows that but the Government got a majority and they pushed it through.
“Now the issue is is there going to be a deal or a no-deal and the shape of that.
“And then, beyond that, the issue is, can we have good relations with our European friends and neighbours?”
“We are a pro-European party. I’m passionately pro-European.
“I want to be as close to our European friends and colleagues as possible because that’s in the interest of the people of Britain.”
Unsatisfied with the answer, Ms Ridge blasted: “Okay, I’m not clear on that answer still.”
To which the Lib Dems leader replied: “I can’t see us at the next elections be anything other than pro-European, but I also think we need to face the situation as it is.
“Britain will have left the European Union.
“I think that the idea that people want to revisit this in two or three years, I think that’s for the birds.
“But we will remain passionately pro-European, determined to get the benefits of working with our friends and neighbours.”
