Newham Liberal Democrats are calling on our local council to demand a People's Vote on behalf of all of us in the borough. Newham can't afford Brexit and we need our Labour mayor and council to show leadership and stand up for the people of Newham.
The Liberal Democrats believe that we must stop Brexit and that the best way to achieve this is through a referendum to have our final say. In November 2018, Rokhsana Fiaz, mayor of Newham said that the council would debate a motion calling for a referendum but 6 months later, that vote has still not taken place.
Brexit is a national crisis which will make the lives of people in Newham worse by damaging the economy and removing the freedom of movement that so many of us depend on to live and work in our borough. Newham can't afford Brexit.
The people of Newham urgently require Newham's Labour run council to acknowledge the need for a People's Vote and call on the UK government to deliver this.
