Lucas – Brexit is not the answer to Britain’s divisions

Commenting on Jeremy Corbyn’s speech to the CBI, Caroline Lucas MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:

“Brexit is not the answer to the deep-seated divisions scarring Britain. Putting up barriers between the UK and our nearest neighbours will only make it harder to deliver the radical change communities need and to tackle problems that span borders.

“The Prime Minister has come up with a proposed deal that clearly fails Labour’s six tests and Parliament should vote it down. Instead of prolonging the agony by pretending there is some magical formula for Brexit that can please everyone, we need to start rebuilding our country by listening to the people. That is why I want to see a People's Vote and commitments to transforming our economy, so it works for all of us.”
