We must stay in the single market and the customs union

A ‘no deal’ or a ‘dud’ deal Brexit on top of a coronavirus recession, forecast to be the worst for 300 years, is madness. Why are we imposing economic sanctions on ourselves at a time like this?

 

Why are we jumping into the unknown at one of the most critical times in our history?

 

The British people didn’t vote for food shortages or for the NHS to be unable to source essential medicines and equipment. They didn’t vote to be poorer. They didn’t vote to have their lives turned upside down or for their children to have no future.

 

We need to think long and hard about Brexit. To do the nation deliberate harm by allowing a ‘no deal’ or ‘dud deal' Brexit to happen, particularly at this crucial time, is NOT ACCEPTABLE. 

 

To minimise the negative effects of Brexit, Britain MUST stay in the single market and the customs union. This means accepting some EU rules - why not, we have accepted them for 47 years and helped make most of them. It means accepting free movement, which is a privilege.  In a recent poll 57% wanted to rejoin the EU, 35% wanted Brexit. The tide has turned decisively, times have changed!

Not to be in the single market and the customs union makes no sense!

We may have left the European Union, but why are we severing all ties and waving goodbye to the trading mechanisms of the most successful trading bloc on the planet? We don’t have to. To do so at this critical time when we’re facing the worst recession in 300 years, makes no sense.

Why are we imposing economic sanctions on ourselves at a time like this? It's an act of ECONOMIC VANDALISM.

 

Nearly half our trade is done with the EU. It’s a huge market right on our doorstep. Why are we deliberately disadvantaging British business and making life unnecessarily difficult for ourselves at one of the most critical times in our history?

 

It’s time to rethink Brexit. We don’t have to have a hard Brexit. We don’t have leap into the unknown and do ourselves deliberate harm. There is a simple solution which, right now, makes good sense:

 

We MUST remain in the single market and the customs union. Yes we will have to accept some EU laws - which we helped to make - and free movement, which the majority want.

The tide has turned. 57% want to rejoin the EU, 35% want Brexit. 'New thinking' is needed. Urgent action is required.

Support for Brexit is collapsing

The British electorate didn’t vote to be poorer. They didn’t vote to have their lives ruined, to have their childrens’ prospects trashed. They most certainly don’t want a ‘no deal’ or even a ‘dud deal’ Brexit on top of the coronavirus recession.

 

The government have become untethered from reality. They need to wake up to what’s happening and realise that things have changed. Only 35% support Brexit and a massive 57% want to rejoin the EU.

 

We are facing an economic and social catastrophe on 31st December whatever type of Brexit is dished up.  

It is NOT too late. This 'no deal'/'dud deal Brexit madness can be stopped. Not to try and stop it would be to be complicit in an act of economic vandalism.

The most sensible thing would be for Britain to remain in the single market and the customs union. It means that Brexit supporters will have to stomach some EU laws and free movement, but they are very much in the minority now. Will you support this? If you do the country would like to hear you say so.

Yours sincerely

Who voted to be worse off?

People feel utterly helpless. They didn’t vote for their lives to become worse, for their prospects to be trashed, for Britain to be diminished. But it’s what’s happening and more and more people are saying ENOUGH!

 

57% want to rejoin the EU. They’ve had enough of this Brexit nonsense, but we are edging our way towards a ‘no deal’ or a ‘dud deal’ Brexit that will do them and the country a great deal of harm.

 

There is a way out of this mess and that is to remain in the single market and the customs union even if it means accepting some EU laws and free movement - which the majority want.

I would ask you to support this and make your opinion known. It’s time to put the country first.

Yours sincerely
