Catherine West MP said: “I joined thousands at the People’s Vote Rally in Westminster last night and am pleased that Parliament has successfully forced the Government to release the legal advice on Brexit.
The Brexiteers promised the earth during the referendum campaign and blamed the EU for all our woes. After years of Tory austerity, savage cuts to public services and rising job insecurity it is no surprise that many believed them.
But it was a lie. No deal or a bad deal threatens jobs, our NHS and the future for our young people. It leaves us following rules we’ll no longer have any say in making and throws into uncertainty the lives of the 3 million EU citizens who have made the UK their home.
There is no consensus in Parliament for this car crash. We have to vote this deal down and put the final decision to a people’s vote.”
