said “I have always kept my commitment to being West Lancashire’s voice in Westminster, not Westminster’s voice in West Lancashire”. And West Lancashire’s Brexit voice said leave.
But now, the key line of the manifesto on Brexit is that Labour will deliver a second referendum: “Labour will give the people the final say on Brexit. Within three months of coming to power, a Labour government will secure a sensible deal. And within six months, we will put that deal to a public vote alongside the option to remain. A Labour government will implement whatever the people decide“.
Time and time again, including in their 2017 manifesto, Labour have said that they accept the 2016 referendum result, but many will be wondering how exactly ignoring the first referendum and having another one, does that.
She wrote “In 2016 West Lancashire voted in favour of leaving the EU, a decision Rosie Cooper MP committed to honouring during the Brexit process. A position which is consistent with the 2017 Labour Party manifesto which she was elected on”. The Brexit process is still ongoing, merely delayed. Is she of the same mind after today’s Labour manifesto?
