Brexit

Given that Theresa May has announced her resignation as leader of the Conservative Party, and then as Prime Minister, it is now to be seen what the government and the new Prime Minister will do to deliver Brexit.

My own view is that we need to move forward and deliver Brexit properly, in line with promises made in our manifesto in 2017. This means leaving the customs union, leaving the single market, leaving the jurisdiction of the European Court of Justice and stopping sending billions of pounds each year to the European Union. I do also want to see the UK starting actual trade negotiations with the EU to take us into the future, instead of just talking about how we leave.

I think talk of holding another referendum or a General Election is premature. Let’s see who is elected, what their priorities are and how they intend to go about delivering Brexit.
