August 14, 2018 8:05 AM

Wealden LibDems joined with Tunbridge Wells LibDems to campaign for a People's Vote on the final Brexit deal in Tunbridge Wells centre on Saturday.

There was great support for the pro-EU stall with a good group of volunteers talking to passers-by and plenty of lively debate about a possible Brexit deal, or no deal, or the option to stay in! People were reminded that it's not too late to cancel Brexit altogether and get out of the current impasse and give political space to address other pressing issues on the NHS, housing and local government cuts.

Over 90 people signed postcards to local MP, Greg Clark, asking him to support a People's Vote on any Brexit deal and with an option to stay on the ballot paper…

Everyone was invited to take part in the Brexitometer poll to say whether, if we were to leave the EU, it would be good for trade, jobs, NHS and families. A substantial majority thought any kind of Brexit would be bad for everything and supported having a final People's Vote on any deal…

Elsewhere a new nation-wide poll on the EU found that over 100 constituencies which voted to leave in 2016 now want to remain in the EU. See the map here. This is very encouraging news at national level and means that a majority of Westminster Mps (including Boris Johnson and Michael Gove) now represent remain-voting constituencies. There are no big changes in the South-East however, but although no constituencies have changed majority from leave to remain the results do show significant shifts towards remain in towns like Eastbourne and Crawley. Wealden stays about the same narrow majority for 'leave' - and Tunbridge Wells stays the same for 'remain'…

We encourage everyone who wants to take action to sign the People's Vote petition here and to consider joining us in London on 20 October for the biggest anti-Brexit march yet on Westminster to pressure our MPs to do the right thing for our country and get an Exit from Brexit !
