Of the three Brexit outcomes Theresa May says are available, would you prefer a) her deal, b) no deal or c) no Brexit?

We're going to rally tonight - 6pm at Parliament Square - to give the people the final say on this Brexit deal, and the option to remain in the EU. Find out more here
Today we must decide what kind of British to be. The British where we go through with something we didn’t really want to do out of polite embarrassment, or the British where we passive-aggressively say ok forget it then and agree to never mention it again.— Lucy Prebble (@lucyprebblish) November 15, 2018
I feel I should take the job of Brexit Secretary now. If only so that when I resign, Theresa May can finally be proved right than No Deal is better than a Baddiel.— David Baddiel (@Baddiel) November 15, 2018
As the Brexit chaos unfolds, people are realising that the Liberal Democrats are the only party who have been absolutely committed to fighting Brexit since day one. You can join them too, and be part of a movement to stand against this embarrassing Brexit. Join up today.
There is no way to prevent Brexit from leaving our country worse off.
"The Tories are finally realising what we have always known. There is no way to prevent Brexit from leaving our country worse off."
"A People's Vote on the final Brexit deal, where they can choose to remain in the EU, is the only route out of this uncertainty. It is time people had the power to end this mess." Vince Cable on the chaos erupting from the cabinet resignations on Thursday morning.

After Theresa May's statement from Downing Street the crucial change is that the Prime Minister and the Government have admitted for the first time that the choice for the country is not just between this bad deal or 'no deal'. Instead, 'No Brexit' is a very real possibility.— Vince Cable (@vincecable) November 14, 2018
Any Brexit deal will leave the UK weakened and the public poorer.
“And before the ink is dry, the Conservative Party will tear into what little Theresa May has been able to agree. The Prime Minister now faces a defeat in Parliament, as a majority will be hard or impossible to secure for what she has come up with."
For two years, the Liberal Democrats are the only party who have consistently fought to give the people the final say on the deal. As we see the chaos that is now unfolding, it is more important than ever to give power over the country's future back to the people.

Transgender and intersex communities are too often marginalised, and many forget that in the fight for equality, trans rights are human rights. We must, and we are, endeavouring to ensure that a vulnerable group of people are able to live as they are entitled to under our laws.

Across the Atlantic, Trump and his cronies are doing their very best to rewrite the definition of transgender out of existence. An agenda of social cleansing that feeds into his administration’s insular and antagonistic narrative. We may like to think that Trump’s views are in isolation, that his fear of difference does not seep to our shores, but it does.Read this article on www.libdems.org →

The result of the EU referendum changed an awful lot: the Prime Minister, the economic outlook, Britain’s political discourse and our standing in the world. But there are 3.6 million people whose lives have been affected more than most. These are the citizens of other EU countries who live in the UK.
