Brexit has triggered uncertainty in Britain. Regardless of how you voted in the referendum, it is clear that the future is not as certain as we would have hoped.
Locally, our region has benefited from over £690 million of EU funding for various projects. We doubt we will get the same level of funds from a government which struggles to fix dangerous pavement issues.
The Lib Dems are standing up for the millions of people who are worried about the real life effects of Brexit regardless of how they voted.
Liberal Democrat leader Tim Farron said:
“We respect the result of the referendum but it doesn’t change our values or our belief that Britain is better off in Europe. So that is what we will fight for at the next election.”
“And we say to every EU citizen already living here -of course you should be able to stay in the country you have made home.”
“I think even people who disagree with us will respect the fact we are standing by what we believe.”
