Responding to the large Government defeat in the House of Commons on the meaningful vote, Liberal Democrat Leader Vince Cable said:
“The Prime Minister’s authority is in tatters while Brexit as a project is also in tatters.

“Public opinion now looks to be firmly behind remaining in the EU rather than accepting this friendless deal.”
