    Tim Farron and Caroline Pidgeon visited the Polish centre in London today to show solidarity with the Polish community and to make clear that xenophobic attacks it suffered recently will not be tolerated.



    The attack on the Polish Social and Cultural Association in Hammersmith was just one of numerous racist and xenophobic incidents reported in the week since the Brexit vote. The Liberal Democrat leader and London Assembly member were given a tour and met numerous people from the London Polish community, as well as staff from the Polish embassy.



    Tim Farron said: "We must send the message that racist thugs cannot get away with intimidating any of the diverse communities of the UK. One of Britain's great strengths is its mix of cultures, and despite the referendum result we must ensure that all citizens are made to feel safe.



    "Some of the racist campaign posters and disgusting claims by Nigel Farage and co in the referendum campaign have unleashed something very dangerous, as I warned at the time. This has led to some thinking that racist behaviour is acceptable. It isn't, and Nigel Farage shares the blame for making our streets less safe."



    The Polish centre has been inundated with flowers, cards and messages of goodwill since the attack.



    "The excellent people who staff this centre have taken great comfort from the support they have received from Britons up and down the country. The centre is a hugely impressive space and welcomes other communities into its heart. On my visit a local primary school was using its theatre to practice for a play. It is multi-cultural Britain at its best and must be protected."

    Liberal Democrats have welcomed the announcement that George Osborne is to abandon his fiscal rule and called on the Government to move Government spending to a 'war footing' to combat the impact of a Brexit Recession.

    The Liberal Democrat shave long said the fiscal rule would restrict growth, but it's impacts would be even more severe given the impact of a Brexit vote. They said that now is the time to dramatically increase spending on infrastructure to boost the economy.

    Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron has committed to fight the next General Election on a platform taking Britain back into Europe.



    Since Britain voted for Brexit on Thursday thousands of people have joined the Liberal Democrats.



    Tim Farron has now said that in any upcoming national election he will promise to rejoin the European Union.



    The economic uncertainty will affect jobs, people's homes and livelihoods.



    The Liberal Democrats accept the result of the referendum but plan to make the case for us to rejoin the heart of Europe.



    Tim Farron said:



    "For many millions of people, this was not just a vote about Europe. It was a howl of anger at politicians and institutions who they felt they were out of touch and had let them down.



    "The British people deserve the chance not to be stuck with the appalling consequences of a Leave campaign that stoked that anger with the lies of Farage, Johnson and Gove.



    "The Liberal Democrats will fight the next election on a clear promise to restore British prosperity and role in the world, with the UK in the European Union, not out.

    I am devastated and I am angry. Today we woke to a deeply divided country.



    Nigel Farage's vision for Britain has won this vote, but it is not a vision I accept.



    An institution that we built, that delivered peace, that promoted equality, kept us safe and opened the doors of opportunity, will no longer play part of Britain's future.

    In just 60 hours time, our country will have decided what the future holds.



    A number of my non-political friends have asked what they can do to help the remain campaign.



    In Norwich our team of Lib Dems is working flat out to get as many voters to the polling stations as possible.



    For the rest of today and tomorrow, we are delivering leaflets and letters - details at http://norwichlibdems.org.uk/events



    On Thursday - polling day - we will be starting early and finishing late. We are going to be phoning people, knocking on their door to drag them to the polling station, handing them a leaflet on their way to work. The list goes on and on.



    Norwich, and in particular the Golden Triangle area, is key to winning this referendum.
