Labour Against Brexit

labour4EU@labouragainstbrexit.co.uk

By the strength of our common endeavour

To succeed in changing Labour Party policy on Brexit, the voices of Labour voters and members must be heard. If you are a party member, you can make a huge difference by proposing / supporting our Contemporary motion in your local Constituency Labour Party (CLP).

This motion is sponsored by Remain-Labour & Labour4EU and supported by activists across the Labour movement. We are looking for volunteers to table and pass this motion in every CLP across the country, building a grassroots campaign that will ensure the party leadership has to think again on Brexit.

Please contact us if you are interested in proposing a motion in your local party, we can help you understand the process and connect you to local supporters.

Conference notes:

  • The UK will leave the European Union on March 29th 2019 if a majority of MPs vote in parliament to approve the final Withdrawal Agreement


  • On the 9th August, the Tories approach to Brexit saw the pound drop to its lowest level against the dollar in a year – a weak pound is raising the cost of living for millions of people already hit hard by austerity


  • On the 10th August a YouGov poll found that 76% of Labour voters support a People’s Vote on the final deal


 

Conference believes:

  • If the UK leaves the European Union, our country will be permanently poorer, with the greatest burden falling on the poorest and youngest in society


  • Any form of Brexit will weaken the public finances and further damage the NHS, which is already in crisis due to Conservative cuts


 

Conference further believes:

  • The White Paper on Brexit confirms the Conservatives intend to leave the customs union and lose access to the single market for services, which account for 80% of the UK economy.


  • As a result, we know the Withdrawal Agreement will fail to deliver “the exact same benefits” of EU membership and will fail to meet Labour’s Six Tests.


 

Conference resolves:


Labour Party policy should be to:


  • Vote against the Withdrawal Agreement in Parliament


  • Support a People’s Vote on the Withdrawal Agreement and to campaign to Remain in the EU in that referendum

'Why Labour must support a People’s Vote and campaign to Remain in the EU’
