“Would I vote for Brexit again?”

12th October 2017

In recent days, I have been increasingly asked “Would you vote for Brexit again?”

I believe that this is the wrong question.

Over 60% of my constituents voted in a Referendum to leave. My job is now to work hard to try and ensure Brexit works for the 48% as well as the 52% and doesn’t do what I feared it would do – make us poorer, deepen austerity, and see Britain turn its back on the world.

That’s why I’m working to ensure that Brexit becomes an inspiring moment of Renewal we can ALL look back on with pride. The real question is whether we can deliver a Brexit deal that’s worth supporting.


Big Tent Ideas Festival

Politics is undergoing a tectonic shift. That’s why this year I launched the first-ever Big Tent Ideas Festival, aiming to tackle the most difficult policy challenges we face. Bringing together over a hundred thinkers across the political spectrum, we discussed new ideas on everything from Brexit to intergenerational fairness, centred around three main themes: Politics, Society and Economy.

The Big Tent Ideas Festival is part of the new Capital Ideas Foundation, and will be setting off round the country over the next twelve months as the forum for the best new ideas in public policy. Click below and join us.
