Lib Dems respond to UKIP's claim that May has stolen their policies

Today Patrick O'Flynn, UKIP's Spokesperson on the Economy, said: "we could I think be forgiven for finding it galling that the ever-pragmatic Tory party has lately donned so many of our clothes"

This statement comes as a poll finds that people think the Conservatives are more right-wing than UKIP.

Responding, Tom Brake, Liberal Democrat Foreign Affairs Spokesperson and candidate for Carshalton and Wallington said:

"Theresa May has shown no shame and seems happy to parrot Farage's lines in a desperate bid to gain more votes.

"Whilst UKIP might think this is just pragmatism, many people will find it disgusting.

"The referendum result has left a deeply divided Britain, but instead of trying to bring people together Theresa May seems intent on widening the divide.

"The Liberal Democrats are the only party fighting for an open, tolerant and united Britain."
