You Deserve a Final Say on Brexit
Let’s build a future that our children will thank us for.
If you believe, as I do, that Theresa May’s deal is not good for our country, then join my campaign for a people’s vote on the way forward. The Liberal Democrats are the only party that wants you to have the final say on something that will shape our country for generations to come.
The Liberal Democrats are fighting for the people to have a final say
For the last 2 years we’ve been fighting to give the people the final say on the deal, with the option to stay in the European Union. We’ve led the campaign both in Parliament and in communities across the country, demanding people – not politicians – get the final say on the Brexit deal.
There is a drive from some in Parliament for the very hardest of Brexits and a willingness to push our country to a no-deal exit. This is at odds with the wishes of our constituency who voted overwhelmingly to remain in the EU.
Meanwhile it is clear that the promises of the leave campaign can’t be delivered.
Instead we have a bad deal on the table which an embattled Prime Minister is trying to railroad parliament into accepting, because she knows a no deal would be catastrophic.
The Prime Minister asked MPs to make a choice of her deal, no deal or no Brexit. She asked them to choose based on what their constituents want. We know what the constituents of Esher and Walton want based on their vote in the referendum. But I’m not sure our MP is listening or wants to listen. He certainly looks hell bent on an his own idea of a hard Brexit.
If our MP can’t represent us then let’s fight for a people’s vote where we can express the choice ourselves. Let’s take back control.
If you believe in that too – that your MP no longer represents you, then please join my campaign. My team are fighting hard for a people’s vote because we believe the people of Esher and Walton deserve better and that their voices should be heard.
Our country stands at a crossroads – the decisions taken over the next few months will determine our future prosperity and the UK’s place in the world for decades to come. If you want your voice heard then join me.
