Demand better than Brexit!

Britain's EU membership is the best framework for working effectively and in the pursuit of our shared aims. It has led directly to greater prosperity, investment and jobs, better security, and a greener environment. euuk

That's why we truly believe that Britain's best chance to succeed is within the EU.

While much remains uncertain about Brexit, it is now clear that the Conservatives are working towards a scenario in which the UK crashes out of the EU. This means leaving the Single Market, ending freedom of movement, and abandoning the Customs Union - even though these choices will make the UK poorer.

The effects of Brexit are already being felt. Growth in the economy has slowed, and the government is already borrowing billions more to fill the gap in lost tax revenue. Urgent problems, such as the closure of our local A&E and the climate emergency, are being neglected because of the sheer scale of the challenge posed by Brexit.

Brexit would make all these problems worse, and the Liberal Democrats believe that is the wrong choice for the country, and for Weston.

That's why we will continue to fight for the people to have the final say on the Brexit deal, for the decision to be taken out of the hands of politicans, and put to the electorate in a People's Vote which would include the option of staying in the EU on the ballot paper.

Furthermore, if a Liberal Democrat majority government is elected in a general election, that will be recognised as an unequivocal mandate to revoke Article 50 and for the UK to stay in the EU.

We continue to believe that there is no deal as good for the UK as the one we already have as a member of the EU.

A vote for a Liberal Democrats is a vote to stop Brexit.
