Brexit is not popular in Staines High Street

Spelthorne Brexitometer

David Campanale in Staines High StreetOn Saturday David Campanale went out and asked people what they thought about Liberal Democrat policies in general and Brexit in particular. The overwhelming response was that Brexit and Boris Johnson would be bad for all of us.

We all know that if the referendum were to be held again there would be a majority for wanting to stay in the EU, now we know what leaving really means. This is why the Tories and Brexit Party are so against another vote. Their definition of democracy is to ask a vague question and then claim everyone voted for whatever deal they have cooked up.

We now know what type of deal the Tories want and it is clearly worse than the current deal we have. With the Tory deal we will have tariffs for EU trade, a lower GDP and a smaller economy.

The Lib Dem manifesto clearly explains the main arguements for staying in the EU:

  1. To be part of a bigger union to work on global issues like climate change and poverty
  2. Brexit will damage the UK economy by removing us from the single market
  3. Turning our back on the EU will damage our trade and lost markets will not be easily replaced
  4. The end of free movement is bad for the UK
