BREXIT STANCES: St Albans candidates set out their position on Brexit

 Published on: 25th November 2019   |   By: News Bulletin   |   Category: Uncategorized

In the December issue of StAlbansNews, Question Time, Anne Main’s answer to the question “Where Do You Stand On Brexit?” is incorrect. We sincerely apologise for the error.

The candidates for St Albans in next month’s General Election have clarified their views on Brexit.

Anne Main, Conservative Party Candidate, was elected MP for the city in 2005.

Mrs Main said she believed the decision of the 2016 Referendum should be honoured.

She explained: “I stand for democracy. All politicians pledged to give the country a choice on Brexit, 33 million people voted. We must honour that decision. We can’t cancel such a momentous vote. The country needs a deal to leave in an orderly fashion and forge new relationships with our EU partners.”

Daisy Cooper, Liberal Democrat Candidate, said her party would stop Brexit altogether if elected.

She commented: “Liberal Democrats have led the campaign to give you a final say on the Brexit deal and this is your chance. With a democratic mandate for a majority Lib Dem government, Lib Dems would revoke Article 50; in all other circumstances we will continue calls for a Peoples Vote.”

Rebecca Lury, Labour Candidate, said she believed the final decision should be put to the people.

She said: “In the 2016 European Referendum I voted to Remain, as did 62 per cent of this constituency. However, unlike the Liberal Democrats I believe that the final decision on leaving the European Union should be put back to the people. Renegotiate or stay, I want you to have your say.”
