  • RT @Kishan_Devani: No @Conservatives please get the message I do not want to rejoin you. I left you nearly a year ago now & joined the @LibDems because I did not want to be a member of a party that wants to destroy the UK! What I do want is a #PeoplesVote! Thank you again for asking but no thanks..
