- Story Text: Britain's Liberal Democrat Party, trailing significantly behind Prime Minister Theresa May's Conservatives and the opposition Labour party, have vowed to hold a second referendum on a final Brexit deal if it wins this month's election on June 8.
Launching his party's proposals for the June 8 election, Lib Dem leader Tim Farron said they would give Britons a say on the divorce deal struck with the European Union after two years of talks, saying a bad agreement would wreck Britain's future.
Farron took over from Nick Clegg to lead the party, following Clegg's resignation after Britain's last election in 2015.
The Liberal Democrats, once vilified for going into coalition with the Conservatives, have gained slightly due to their anti-Brexit stance.
