The Lib Dems keep going on about how they want to reverse Brexit but don't explain why this is a good thing.
I feel they need to take a page out of Macron's book (President of France) and argue the case for a freethinking Europe, with liberal values and the EU being a force against nationalism/populism.
They could also argue EU is great on workers rights, protections, standards etc.
But the Lib Dems aren't doing this.

they are imo (and are right) but their "Stop Brexit" campaign the one that catches the eye so sticks with us and makes more impact

And this was the problem all along - ever since the referendum was called. No-one actually bothered to cogently make the case for staying in the EU in terms of the benefits it afforded this country and its inhabitants. The greatest failure of all. And now the crappy LibDems think just 'calling it off' is the answer!

Yeah they need to state clearly what principles and values they're for. At the moment the Lib Dems are just stating what they're against.
