Tower Hamlets councillor Andrew Cregan has left the Labour Party to join the Liberal Democrats, citing Jeremy Corbyn's support for Conservative plans for Brexit.
“I have been passionately pro-European as long as I can remember but, after a three-line whip for Brexit, I cannot see Labour any longer as an unambiguously pro-Europe party,” said Andrew, who chairs the Pensions Committee on the Council.
“That is not something I can agree with. It strikes at the very essence of why I got involved in politics.”
More and more people are joining the Liberal Democrats every day to fight the Conservative's Hard Brexit agenda.
