Pro-EU Change UK, Liberal Democrats Could Form CUK-LD Alliance

Change UK (CUK) and the Liberal Democrats could form an electoral pact so as to avoid splitting the anti-Brexit in the next Westminster election.
“The Remain forces in this country need to work even more closely together than we have managed to achieve up to this point between now and the general election,” said Chuka Umunna, a former Labour Blairite and CUK’s main spokesman, in comments to BBC Radio 4.

CUK had hoped to crystalise the Remain vote in the European Parliament elections which were held in Britain on Thursday, much as Nigel Farage sought to do for the Leave vote with his Brexit Party.

Votes will not be counted until Sunday night and media regulations prevent any exit polls from being reported — as other EU member-states are still casting their ballots — but preliminary polls suggested CUK has not been particularly successful, despite massively outspending the other parties on social media.
