We are sorry our call for a people’s vote was not debated at the full council meeting

11 October, 2018

• WE are extremely disappointed that our Lib Dem motion calling on all Camden councillors to formally support a people’s vote, with the option to Remain, did not get heard during the full Camden Council meeting on Monday.

This goes against the wishes of residents, who told us they had written to their councillors asking them to support our motion. Given that Labour had also put forward their own motion, outlining their weak and inconsistent policy on Brexit, we can only assume they weren’t prepared to defend it in public.

They should be ashamed of putting their party’s interests before those of residents. Sadly, the Labour-run council has missed a great opportunity to show leadership against Brexit.

Labour is rapidly losing all credibility on the most important issue facing our borough and the rest of the country. The Lib Dems will continue to provide strong opposition to Brexit. We will keep fighting to ensure our residents’ voices are heard.
