Tim Farron joins Sarah Olney at a Brexit Q&A ahead of the Richmond Park by-election


Lib Dem candidate Sarah Olney was joined by Tim Farron at a Q&A in New Malden ahead of next week’s Richmond Park by-election.

The pair was joined by Ed Davey as they answered questions from the audience over a host of issues including Liberal Democrat party policy, and their stance over a second EU referendum.

Tim Farron said: “What people say to me is overwhelmingly how concerned they are about the direction the country’s going in over Brexit – an extreme version of Brexit – that nobody voted for, that is damaging people’s jobs, businesses, indeed their whole outlook in life for them and their children.”
