European flagsCommenting on the European Council meeting which the Prime Minister has billed as critical for his renegotiation, Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:

"The Prime Minister seems to be trying to emulate Margaret Thatcher in standing up to other EU countries. He is a pro-European Tory wet and he should stop pretending otherwise.

"If this renegotiation is supposed to be the Prime Minister's legacy, it is one that will be built on sand.

"The Liberal Democrats are the only party wholeheartedly committed to fighting to remain in the EU. We believe in an open, modern and inclusive Britain that stands tall in the world and doesn't hide from it.

"If David Cameron can't, or won't, make the case for the EU - and Labour are clearly ambivalent - the Liberal Democrats will do."
