Conservatives take power at Bolton Council as agreement reached | The Bolton News

And also for the fact that according to Cable, the current LibDem Remain Masterplan seems to be to support May's Deal and hope a PV amendment attached to it will pass.

It's absolutely fair to criticise them for all of this. Of course they're playing party politics, but that's hardly an excuse when there's so much at stake.
