General election 2019: Lib Dems won’t support Labour nationalisation plans
The Lib Dems would not support Labour’s plans to renationalise key industries in the event of a hung Parliament, the party’s leader Jo Swinson has said.
She told the BBC Radio 5’s Pienaar’s Politics the policy was a “distraction” and not “the way forward”.
The Lib Dems and Labour have both ruled out a coalition deal if there is no clear general election winner.
Asked if she would try to block Labour from forming a minority government, she said it was a “fantasy situation”.
“Nobody is expecting, on the current scenario, that Jeremy Corbyn is getting anywhere near Downing Street and the Liberal Democrats are going to put him there.
“So the Labour manifesto, it’s a wish list, they cannot deliver it.”
