Tonight’s debate highlighted how stuck in the past the old parties are– the hard left,
People on the doorsteps in Edinburgh South keep asking me ‘How do we make it stop?’ They don’t believe Boris Johnson when he says they will get it done – this deal of his is only the transition agreement; at the end of next year we need the permanent trade deal or else we won’t have any deal. Far from being stopped ! Labour want to negotiate their own deal.
The SNP want further division and would take us out of the EU with independence. We are the only party that wants to remain in the EU and the UK and will do what we can to do this. If we gained more than 325 seats then we would revoke Article 50 on day one – stopping Brexit dead in its tracks by the will of the people. If we got less than this, we would want a Peoples’ vote that included the Remain option. This would allow the people to vote based on what they now know to be true rather than what they were told in 2016. We have calculated that the ‘Remain Bonus’ will be worth £50bn over five years.
What a week ! We gained two MPs in as many days, and Prime Minister Johnston has managed to lose all his Government’s’ Parliamentary votes, split his party and unite the opposition...
Britain deserves better than the other new leader selected over the last two days. Alexander Boris de Pfeffel Johnson is likely to be a lose-lose leader – lose on his own terms if he doesn’t leave the EU on Halloween and lose if he does. Leaving the EU without a deal would be very damaging for the UK economy - ‘every single [representative] warned us of the damaging consequences faced by their members in the event of a no deal Brexit’ - the House of Commons Select Committee On Exiting the EU report of 19th July. We think a Peoples’ Vote on membership of the EU is the best solution to the BREXIT impasse.
Great news that Jo Swinson has been elected to be our new leader, she’ll be a breath of fresh air in British politics. She will be a great antidote to the male domination of our politics. She can defeat nationalism, populism, the catastrophe of Brexit and build a better future with freedom, openness and fairness.
