Lib Dems in ‘call to action’ to stop Brexit

Liberal Democrat Brexit Spokesperson Tom Brake MP has today written to Remain MPs from all political parties, urging them to back the Liberal Democrat’s campaign for a People’s Vote in the fight against Brexit.

Tom Brake said:

The Liberal Democrats have been consistently fighting for the last two years, but we know that now is the time for every single MP to make their decision on the most important matter facing the UK.

That is why I have written to Remain MPs urging them to join us in this fight.

This is a call to action in the fight against Brexit. Help us stop this chaos with a People’s Vote with the option to remain in the EU. March with us through the lobbies, in the knowledge that you are putting our country first and standing on the right side of history.

    There is a big problem though.
    A few days ago a group of Academics at UCL released their estimate of how long it would take to set up a Peoples Vote, they think its just short of 6 Months. The big delays seem to be mostly administrative or Legal, these “Experts” didnt see much scope for greatly shortening the process.
    Do we want a campaign that will last till next Summer ? Do we want to have The Peoples Vote, The Local Elections & (possibly) The European Elections all happening around the same time ?
    If that is what we want, will Business & The Markets wait patiently for the uncertainties to be resolved ?
    I just hope our Leaders are thinking about all this.

  • Paul, if the will is there is can be done in a week, with guillotines etc. Expect it in February.
    Judges will play their part if necessary.

  • General Elections can happen in a fraction of that time and, as Theakes says, parliamentary processes can be done quickly when necessary. In any event, 6 months takes us to May and the EU negotiators have indicated that they could extend the Article 50 period for a referendum.
