Layla Moran: Brexit is a mess and we need a People’s Vote

Ahead of this afternoon’s Lib Dem Commons debate on the People’s Vote, Layla Moran has been on Victoria Derbyshire to talk about what a mess Brexit is turning out to be, how people didn’t really know at the time of the referendum exactly what it was going to mean and how we need a People’s Vote on the deal.

    Just tuned into the “debate” on TV, hardly anyone in the house of commons… embarrassing!

    Will keep watching in the hope someone says something new…

  • Will the Lib Dems support a referendum on joining the TPP (one of May’s plans)?

    I am a strong supporter of the TPP, however I fear that voters will be tricked by populist arguments against it – be it the gutter politics campaign against international arbitration we saw with TTIP and CETA, the predictable moaning about public services being opened up globally to competition, the xenophobic complaints over Visas, Mode 4 immigration and the protectionist and xenophobic complaints over job offshoring. Both the far left – led by Corbyn and backed by the Greens, and the far right (some Brexit Tories and whatever remains of UKIP / EDL / BNP / For Britain will join in this chorus.

    I am concerned that populism will lead to any sort of trade deals being rejected. The public aren’t qualified to understand the issues – the original fault with the referendum, and will resort to supporting populist far right arguments over sovereignty and immigration and populist far left arguments over workers rights and foreign corporations.

    I fear no matter what deals are struck, the same old anti-trade stuck in the mud types will ensure nothing is signed by forcing their extremist views on an unthinking population who are only too happy to flag wave and bash immigrants, corporations, bankers, supranational “elites” and globalisation.

  • I support the Lib Dem support for ditching Brexit. Please will Lib Dems come along to Parliament to support Sodem with flags. We are outside from 11am to 6 pm and nobody needs to stay the whole time. I have been interviewed and filmed by most European papers and photos of my arm, and the flag are all over the place. Come along and make a difference because we are the face of the anti Brexit majority in this country.

    I was pleased to see Tom Brake pointing out that there would be an Exit from Brexit dividend of 15 billion (govn tax revenues kept compared to Brexit), something I suggested shouting about on here a while back, though I am sure he worked it out for himself.
