Brexit: Britain needs an anti-Brexit alliance – by Vince Cable

Britain's next prime minister is in the process of being chosen by around 160,000 Conservative Party members — a self-selecting "selectorate" that is predominantly over 55, relatively wealthy, and, needless to say, not representative of the country.

When their chosen leader drags himself out of that toxic sludge, he’s in for a shock.

Not only will he face a Conservative Party irrevocably divided at the grassroots level and a country poised to wreak revenge for the Brexit shambles at the first opportunity, but he will also face an anti-Brexit front more united than ever before.

Parties such as the Liberal Democrats, the Greens and Plaid Cymru are starting to work together for the greater good. We're putting aside our differences and focusing on doing everything collectively to stop a no-deal Brexit — and, indeed, to stop Brexit altogether.

In the upcoming Brecon and Radnorshire by-election, Welsh party Plaid Cymru has endorsed the Liberal Democrats because we offer the clearest chance of victory for pro-European voters. The Green Party has also decided to stand aside. That means anyone wanting to elect a candidate who is committed to stopping Brexit will be voting for the Lib Dems' Jane Dodds, maximizing the chances of taking back this Welsh seat from the anti-European Tories.

It's hard to overstate the significance of this alliance. The decision is a beacon of political pragmatism and principle in the current fog of cross-party rancor and offers a roadmap for building an effective anti-Brexit front that can save Britain from lurching toward disaster.
