Tim Farron arriving at Autumn 2016 Conference (Liberal Democrats on Flickr)Tim Farron has commented on Theresa May's Conservative conference speech:

Theresa May has just confirmed that we are going for a Hard Brexit. This means no single market for Britain.

This means disaster for British jobs, businesses and our economy. The Lib Dems are now the only party fighting for Britain's membership of the Single Market.

The Conservatives have lost the right to call themselves the party of business. The Liberal Democrats are the only free market, free trade, pro-business party now.

Nigel Farage's obsession has officially become government policy.
