Lucas – Would be ridiculous to leave the EU because some MPs were frightened of elections

Commenting on the coming week’s votes on Brexit in the House of Commons, Caroline Lucas MP, leading supporter of the People’s Vote campaign, said:.

“Marches matter and our protest yesterday, one of the greatest demonstrations Britain has ever seen, was simply too big for anyone to ignore. 

“MPs returning to Westminster for crucial votes on Brexit this week should hear the echo of a million voices demanding that any final deal is put to the people.

“Indeed, the scale and passion of this People’s Vote march shows there is a vast well of support in Britain for a positive pro-European case.

“Instead of running scared from fighting European elections, progressive politicians should be seeking a further extension of the Brexit deadline and preparing for an important democratic contest. 

“It would, after all, be patently ridiculous if we ended up leaving the European Union with a disastrous Brexit simply because MPs were frightened of fighting European elections.”
