With more turmoil looming over #Brexit this week, it's heartening to see support growing to #SuspendA50 and hold a #2ndEUref - most recently from @JustineGreening. What’s best for our country must be at the front of our minds
Like all who want #SuspendA50 & hold a #2ndEUref, I want time to do a decent deal then take stock and check that’s what people really want. It’s the only logical option for us all: country, party, EU and the rest of the world
We need time to determine the future of our country, & what our final Brexit position should be. We then need to put this back to people in a new vote. We must be sure that the Brexit we decide on (if we take this direction) is right. We mustn’t rush or act on this irrationally.
The reality we have to face is that the proposed deal to leave is incredibly unlikely to be as good as what we’ve got now. In the absence of a better alternative, no Government can honestly say that leaving is in our country’s best interests. That’s why we need a #2ndEUref
The Govt must recognise the growing voice that stands for #SuspendA50 & #2ndEUref. It must take responsibility for our future. It‘s not good enough to plan for no deal, or to force a Brexit that pleases nobody & undermines our future. The Govt must take notice
This analysis is worth a read - but the choice in a #2ndEUref should be simple: between a deal to Leave properly or a new deal to Remain. Don’t include the “worst of both worlds” option that all agree is bad. There’s no Third Way on this: we do or we don’t…
We have to learn from past mistakes: the Government must offer realistic, clear choices between good futures for our country. It was the height of irresponsibility to offer dreams without knowing how to make them come true; it would be wrong to offer a harmful fudge
.@NickCohen4 has wise words for all of us in public & political life: “there will be times when you will be frightened of saying what you believe...Allow that fear to dominate you and you will end up...platitudinous, frightened, and irrelevant.”…
More of us need to stand up for what we believe in. It would be easy to look at our tired politics, feel that it‘s all a bit hopeless and give up. We must not be discouraged. The future of our country depends on it
