Commenting on the Prime Minister's speech today, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:
"The Prime Minister has tried to make a pitch to the centre ground, but frankly, it won't work. Her words are not matched by her actions.
“Every time Theresa May opens her mouth on Brexit the pound falls further. It’s clear this Government is taking us towards a destructive hard Brexit that would hurt jobs, increase prices and blow a hole in the budget.
"But today's speech was supposed to be Mental Health. This speech sounds a lot like the David Cameron's before it. The Conservatives reheat these proposals more often than most people have microwavable meals.
“Only the Liberal Democrats are fighting to keep Britain open, tolerant and united."
