Exit from Brexit: We Demand a Vote on the Facts

Our latest news

Brighton & Hove Lib Dems will be supporting the LET US BE HEARD march in London on 19th October. We will be getting the 09:33 train from Brighton station, arriving into London Victoria at 10:35 and joining the national Lib Dem contingent in Park Lane. Please contact Caroline Brown if you can attend. Remember to wear your best and brightest EU/Lib Dem outfit!

In terms of the local camapign, our monthly street stall will be held from 6pm to 7pm on Tuesday 29th October. We'll be in the pedestrianised area of New Road in central Brighton, between the Unitarian Church and the Mash Tun. Hope to see you there!

Stop Brexit march in London 23rd March 2019

Our campaign in Brighton & Hove

We are campaigning to raise awareness of the Liberal Democrat position on Europe and to build visible demand for a referendum on the terms of Brexit, with the option to change our minds and stay in the EU. In the previous referendum, key groups were excluded - 16 and 17 year olds, who have to live with the result the longest, as well as EU citizens in the UK and UK citizens abroad - so we are also campaigning for these groups to be given the vote this time around.

Exit from Brexit march seafront 24th Sept 2017

The British public have been given no say in the direction of Brexit negotiations: the views of Remainers (68.6% of Brighton & Hove) and moderate Leavers alike have been ignored in favour of the views of a handful of extremists on the right of the Conservatives. This only makes it even more important that the people have the final say on whether to accept whatever deal, or lack thereof, the government can negotiate. If there is enough visible demand, Westminster will listen and give the people the final say.

We demand a referendum on the final terms of Brexit, we demand a referendum on facts rather than the false promises of 2016, we demand our democratic right to change our mind. We can still secure a democratic #ExitFromBrexit.

"If Britain changes its mind, it would find an open door." Guy Verhofstadt, EU Parliament Brexit representative.

"If a democracy cannot change its mind, it ceases to be a democracy." David Davis, UK Brexit Secretary.

How to get involved

We hold a stall on New Road, by the Unitarian Church, the last Tuesday of every month from 6pm-7pm to discuss Brexit and distribute leaflets. Come along if you're interested, the more the merrier!

If you're a party member and are interested in joining the EU campaign group, please contact us by email.

Nationally: Lib Dem EU policy

Since the EU referendum, the Liberal Democrats have been on the side of Remainers. Whether in Parliament, in the courts, in the media or on the streets, we've been leading the fight for three years to stay part of the European Union.

Our members have voted that if we win a General Election, we will not waste any more time. We will revoke article 50 and remain in the EU. Should we not emerge out of a General Election with a majority, our policy will continue to be backing a People's Vote to break the Brexit impasse.

Our position is absolutely clear: we want to stop Brexit.

A vote for the Liberal Democrats in a General Election is a vote to stop Brexit. A vote for Remain in a People's Vote is a vote to stop Brexit. And with your help, we are going to stop Brexit.

You can read our Stop Brexit policy motion here, which was passed at the 2019 autumn conference.
