A LIBDEM MP has launched a scathing attack on his own party, labelling them a “mirror image” of the hard Brexiteer European Research Group (ERG).

Norman Lamb said he was worried about his party’s approach to Brexit and is considering quitting the party whip.

The MP for North Norfolk made the comparison while the slamming his colleagues for being “intransigent” in their Brexit position and for not respecting the alternative point of view.

“The whole essence of my liberalism is that you seek to try and bring people together, you find and build consensus,” said Lamb.

“I just worry that it looks like we’re almost like the mirror image of the ERG – intransigent in a position, not willing to move at all or respect the alternative point of view.”
