We’ve voted in the EU Referendum; so what now?

A cross party March, called “For The Next Generation”, has been arranged for Saturday 9 July, leaving St Johns Hall, in Penzance at 10.30 a.m. Councillor Sue James and Andrew George, would like to see as many people as possible there. This is an event for the 48% that did not vote to leave the EU or now they have seen there is no plan, have changed their minds.

Tim Farron, the leader of the Liberal Democrats, spoke on radio 4 this morning saying that although 17.5 million people voted to leave the EU, it is now clear that there are many conflicting versions of what that might look like. Those voters do not all agree. Equally, he said that, just over 16 million wanted to remain in the EU. Events since the referendum mean that what people voted for is less clear. Tim Farron advocated that before any final decisions are made, there needs to be a General Election or a 2nd referendum, where the option to leave is clearly defined and the option to remain a member of the EU is still available.

Since the referendum, ‘one person a minute’ has decided to join the Liberal Democrats. Those reading this wanting to make a greater commitment to the party, to help in the fight for a fairer society can join on-line at http://www.libdems.org.uk/membership-faqs or by ringing 020 7022 0988.
