Brexit has cost two Prime Ministers their jobs in less than three years

The third PM faces a Parliament where:
  • The numbers have not changed
  • The EU has said it will not renegotiate the Withdrawl Agreement
  • As part of its extension request Britain agreed not to seek to renegotiate

The topics to be considered are:

  1. The outcomes of the recent European elections;
  2. The problems of EU residents in UK and UK citizens in Member States (including the Euro election fiasco);
  3. Legal and democratic issues arising from the Brexit process. These will include overseas influence, funding, future public inquiry and whether there is any legal recourse to prevent Brexit happening without Parliament having the final say;
  4. The process towards the "Endgame" in October and campaigning activities.

*The right is reserved to ask for further information from any particpant and to refuse admission at the organisers absolute discretion.

The Bermondsey Declaration

R-L-J Conference - 2nd July 2016

Bermondsey Declaration

This declaration commits to a vision of a Europe of peoples, of democratic values, of free trade and shared prosperity, of co-operation, open societies and understanding between the peoples and Governments of Europe, tackling the problems that extend beyond national borders, and strengthening the peace in Europe which has been so hard fought for by previous generations.

As liberals who support the rule of law (within and between states) and internationalism we strongly believe that Britain's place is at the heart of Europe and its institutions, founded on treaties and mediated through democratic bodies of the European Union in which there is an equality between member states.

We note the result of the referendum on Britain's membership of the European Union, which has revealed widespread discontent with current structures and policies in the European Union as well as disenchantment with politics. We now seek a process whereby Britain can maintain a role in Europe's economic, legal and political institutions. Any outcome resulting in Britain wholesale exclusion from Europe's institutions will have been secured through wilful misrepresentation of the facts during the referendum campaign and would manifestly hurt our citizens' national and economic interests and the UK's constitutional integrity. A further democratic mandate is now required, whether through Parliament, elections or referenda to agree the final form of our new relationship with Europe.

We support our leader Tim Farron's commitment to campaign in future democratic contests on a platform of restoring Britain to the heart of Europe.
